Dos and Don’ts in Zanzibar.

DO not forget to bring an Anti-Broom mosquito spray or Malaria prophylactics, even though the island of Zanzibar is not an endemic zone anymore, Malaria can still be contracted due to numerous movements of peoples between Tanzania mainland and other islands, thus especially during the rainy season.

DO remember to ask permission before taking pictures of people or private houses.

DO remember that during the month of Ramadan (depending on the phases of the moon Oct, Nov or Dec), while Muslims are fasting. It is considered the height of bad manners to eat, smoke or drink on the street or in public places, please refrain to eat, drink or smoke during the day on the street or public places.

DO be careful about walking on the beach or on deserted parts of the island late at night or early in the morning.

DON’T carry valuables on the beach or walk alone.

DON’T forget that Zanzibar is a Moslem society. Although alcohol is freely available on the island, drunken behavior is not regarded with tolerance and is considered offensive by most people.

DON’T walk around stone Town or other towns and villages in Zanzibar dressed in bikinis, miniskirts or similar clothing. Modest dress is requested of all tourists in keeping with the Islamic faith of most of the island’s inhabitants. Women should cover their shoulders and wear trousers or skirts that reach below the knee. Men should not walk without t-shirts.

DON’T go topless on the beaches of Zanzibar. Bikinis and swimwear are acceptable on tourist beaches, but not if there are fishermen or seaweed harvesters nearby.

DON’T buy large shells, turtle shells, or pieces of coral from street or beach vendors. These are mostly taken from endangered reefs and marine species and buying them only encourages the destruction of Zanzibar’s ocean fauna.

DON’T give presents of money to children, as this will encourage begging.

DON’T accept tours or transport from unlicensed ‘Beach Boys’. Their services are illegal, unreliable and not liability insured. You could also be taken to isolated 
places and possibly getting robbed.

As it is illegal and random controls, from the police, take place on various check points of the 
Island of Zanzibar, if controlled and found on an excursion, tour or transfer not from a licensed tour operator, you will be held liable by Zanzibar Commission for Tourism, of having bought an illegal service, and charged with a fine up to 500 USD.

Only use reputable and government recognized Tour Operators and Agencies, please be aware that hotels are not licensed to provide excursions, tours and transfers.

DO report any incidents of intimidation in our office allocated at Mpendae Street area of Western Town District or by call using telephone numbers mentioned below, emails under mentioned, and all over Zanzibar to ZATO (Zanzibar Association of Tour Operators) at marketing@zato.or.tz.
