·         Safety & security

Zanzibar is a peaceful location inhabited by peaceful people. However, it is in the best interest of all visitors to "wise-up" on a few simple "dos and don'ts".

Please avoid walking around with more valuables than you need, especially late at night, or on the beaches.

Please be mindful that what may be quite "normal" behaviour or dress-code in some cultures may invite attention or cause offence in others.
