Where You, Nature & Luxury Meet
There is only one Jua, an experience shaped with individual sensitivity.
Zanzibar is an archipelago of islands – the most famous being Unguja located 25 kms from the mainland coast at Dar es Salaam. The island is famous for its mix of exotic beaches, famous spice plantations, history (Stone Town being the capital) and diverse culture.
Best Time To Visit
Zanzibar is sub-tropical with even temperatures of between 28C-32C year round. June to September is the ‘dry’ season with moderate temperatures and is considered high season. The intermittent ‘small rains’ of October / November follow which present a welcome relief from the heat of each day and do not present a barrier to being outdoors. Dec – mid March is the hottest time of the year and is also high season. Then come the ‘big rains’ until end May, when tropical storms are ever present.
