There are two wind seasons on Zanzibar. European winter- Tanzaznian summer, is a period when Kaskasi wind blows on the island. Starting from 15th December, untill the end of march, we can enjoy the wind from 10 to 18 knots. With a little bit of luck you may have a week with wind exceeding 20 knots. Kaskasi is a sideshore wind with a Southern direction. During Tanzanian winter season, which is from 15th June to 15th September, Kusini wind blows at strength of 11 to 22 knots. Altgough days with wind exceeding 25 knots may occur. Kusini like Kaskasi is a sideshore wind, but of Northern direction. At that time temperature is about very cosy 25 C°.

A combination of stable winds with endless lagoon, where we can kite regardless of water level, will content most demanding surfers. Despite varied tides, we can kite in crystal clear, shallow water for most of a day. Conditions for learning just couldn’t be better. At low tide, water flattens out, creating outstanding opportunities for freestyle training. For wave lovers there is also a break on the reef surrounding the spot. It stretches for miles and waves reach even 2 meters high. On a wide, sandy beach, everybody will find a place to set up.

SUP

Take a break from windy spots and get on a trip to the magnificent mangrove forest. Discover unbelievable diversity of endemic trees, plants and animals. Finding your way through all that flora gives a lot of fun.

We will sail on StandUpPaddleBoards along meandering rivers to discover rarely accessible places and breathtaking views on our way. Sometimes on knees, or rowing just with your hands we will be passing native villages. A picturesque sun set will compensate all efforts to get there.

Price for the trip: 50$/person (including transport and board rental)

WIZA

EU Citizens obtain a tourist visa at the Tanzanian border. The visa is valid for 3 months and costs 50 USD.

MONEY

The Tanzanian Shilling is the currency in Tanzania. 1 USD = approx. 2000 Tsh+. The nearest ATM is located in Stone Town. The maximum amount of money that can be withdrawn from ATM is 400,000 Tsh that equals 200 USD. You can pay in dollars almost everywhere.

Credit cards are only accepted at good restaurants and in shops for tourists. Very often this kind of payment charges a 5% commission.

Currency exchange works without major problems. You can get the best exchange rate by exchanging $50 and $100 notes. The lower notes you want to exchange the lower exchange rate you get. It is good to have some petty cash for everyday expenses. Tanzanians definitely prefer dollars than Euros.

TELEPHONE AND INTERNET USE

Mobile phones with an European SIM cards work without any troubles. Internet is available in most hotels and Internet cafés. There is a possibility to purchase a SIM card with enabled data transmission. It is the best option for people who have smartphones and tablets.

WHAT IS WORTH TAKING

  • EU to UK plug adapter
  • a high SPF sunscreen
  • sunglasses
  • a hat to protect head from sun

WHAT TO DO AND WHAT NOT TO DO?

DO NOT - walk in swimsuits through the village and town because it may be treated as a form of insult of local culture and traditions that are strongly related to Islam. We are not responsible for any consequences of insulting local inhabitants by wearing skimpy clothes. DO NOT - walk alone at night in Stone Town. DO NOT - be tricked by ‘’beach boys’’. The men who offer all kind of services and goods but not always with good intentions. DO -  it is worth to calm your mind when something needs more time than in Europe. Locals say ‘’ Europeans have clocks and Africans have time’’. DO -  kuse only licensed taxis. We do not recommend hitch-hiking. DO - order a meal before you get totally hungry. Waiting time may be surprisingly long. DO - you can give children some candies but do not give them money. Money encourages them to begging.
