Zanzibar is regarded as the home of Swahili – it is spoken in its purest form here and in pockets on the coast of Tanzania and Kenya.

Zanzibar is 1 hour ahead of South Africa. Visas are no longer required by S.A passport holders when visiting Zanzibar. A valid passport with at least two blank pages. A copy of a valid return or onward ticket. As of December 1, all that is required for entry into the country is a valid SA passport.
