Where should you go in Zanzibar in january when it comes to the weather?

Remember:
The climate in Zanzibar in january is good across the board.

That month is not the best month to spend holidays in Zanzibar. The weather in Kendwa, Matemwe, Jambiani, Nungwi (Unguja Island), Uroa and Fumba is just ok. The sun is not there all the time and you may be faced the rain often. Nevertheless, if you don't plan a beach and relaxation trip in Zanzibar but rather nature excursions or hiking, this climate may be enough. In addition, there are definitely fewer tourists during this period.

It's even worse in Wete (Pemba Island) and Chake Chake and surrounding areas where the climate is even worse. We really do not recommend you to visit these areas this month.
