FAQs For Tour Packages

It is your choice. Lion King helps to organise flights for many of our guests, but there is little financial advantage to this. If you choose to arrange your own flights to Zanzibar, we recommend that you speak to your Tour Consultant before doing so. They will be able to advise you about timings etc. There are several international airlines that fly into Zanzibar, so it is possible to begin or end your Safari package there. On average, a one-way flight between Arusha and Zanzibar costs U$D 200 per person and takes about one hour.

Yes! It is possible to start (or finish) your Safari & Beach Tour in Zanzibar. There are several international airlines that fly to Zanzibar and this option can often reduce the need for internal connection flights. For example, you can fly into Kilimanjaro (JRO), go on safari, take an internal flight to Zanzibar and then fly home from Zanzibar International Airport (ZNZ). Most guests prefer to finish the holiday in Zanzibar, but the choice is yours.

Different coastlines in Zanzibar offer different things and should be considered when planning your trip.

The East coast of Zanzibar is lined with long stretches of powder-white beaches. Most beaches have a very shallow gradient and as a result, the tide goes out a long way, making it difficult to swim directly from the beach.

On the North Coast, ocean swimming is much less susceptible to the tides. Smooth beaches and white sand make for dazzling days in the sun. Here the beaches are much busier. There are a large number of guest houses, bars, shops and restaurants. The setting and the beaches are beautiful, but it lacks the tranquility of other parts of the island.

The South-West Coast has fewer places to stay and some of the island’s finest marine experiences. The South-West doesn’t have the iconic stretches of powder sand beaches, but visitor numbers are lower.
