Group Safaris In Zanzibar
It is worthwhile to go on a group safari to Zanzibar during your East African safari. Since some expenses, like travel and lodging, will be shared, it is more thrilling, adventurous, and economical. With its pristine white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and palm trees along the Tanzanian coast of the Indian Ocean, Zanzibar is regarded as one of the most beautiful places on earth. It also has a rich historical background.
The name Zanzibar, which means “black coast” in Persian, comes from an archipelago of beautiful small and large islands. Several primates, including the Zanzibar red colobus monkey, Kirk’s red colobus monkey, bush babies, and Skye’s monkeys, as well as a wide variety of bird species, immaculate white sand beaches, and marine life, including green turtles, dolphins, sharks, corals, and lovely fish species, are found in the verdant forests that shelter them. Therefore, group safaris are ideal for exploring Zanzibar’s splendor and treasures.
Zanzibar is known for its stunning beaches along the Indian Ocean, its rich history dating back to the Slave Trade era, its lush vegetation highlighted by rainforests, mangroves, and coastal forests, and its multicultural melting pot. Jet skiing, sunbathing, beach soccer, dhow cruises, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, guided forest walks, birding tours, scuba diving, and tours of Stone Town are among the activities that tourists intend to partake in while on group safaris in Zanzibar. These activities are fun, but they become truly unforgettable when combined with beach parties and led by knowledgeable guides from Focus East Africa Tours.
WHAT MAKES ZANZIBAR WONDERFUL FOR GROUP SAFARIS?
Longer safaris can be taken with Tanzania Safari destinations like the Selous (Nyerere National Park), Mikumi, Mkomazi, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Serengeti, Lake Manyara, Arusha, Tarangire, and Mount Kilimanjaro National Parks, or even Kenya Safaris and gorilla safaris in Rwanda or Uganda, thanks to group safaris in Zanzibar.

The variety of affordable, upscale, and luxurious lodging options in Zanzibar offers visitors an unforgettable experience. The majority of them have numerous, roomy spaces that can comfortably accommodate large groups of up to 30 people without causing any discomfort to the guests.
THE PERFECT TIME TO UNDERTAKE GROUP SAFARIS IN ZANZIBAR
Group safaris in Zanzibar are best experienced in the months of January, February, March, June, July, August, September, and December. These months are ideal for travelers interested in longer safaris who want to extend their trip to include other parts of Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda because they are also regarded as dry months in other parts of Tanzania. This will take you to more well-known wildlife parks where you can take part in fantastic activities like gorilla tours, walking safaris, mountain climbing, and game drives, among many others.
GETTING TO ZANZIBAR: HOW TO ACCESS ZANZIBAR
You can travel by air or water to reach Zanzibar’s lush tropical islands. The majority of flights, which take only 20 to 30 minutes, can be scheduled from Dar es Salaam to Unguja Island (the main island of Zanzibar) and Pemba Island.
Direct flights to Zanzibar are available for international visitors from South Africa, Russia, Israel, Italy, Germany, Turkey, and France. However, visitors from the United States, Canada, Austria, Australia, Norway, Belgium, and many other countries can fly into Dar es Salaam and connect with a domestic flight to Zanzibar or fly into nearby nations like Kenya (Mombasa and Nairobi) and Ethiopia (Addis Ababa) to connect directly to Zanzibar.
As an alternative, you can travel to Zanzibar by ferry from Dar es Salaam or by water taxi (private speed boat) from other coastal regions like Tanga, Bagamoyo, and Pangani, among others.
