Next year? Which month? Prices are seasonal. There's also a 'wet' season when some places actually close as from mid-Mar thru early-Jun.

Accommodations are available at all budgets whether self-catering, budget cottages, small or large resorts, ceiling fans or with air conditioning.

Two (2) weeks... well, it depends. Even for 'beach' people, this can be an awfully long time. Are you avid water people - snorkling, Scuba? Then maybe Mafia Island split with Zanzibar or Pemba Island; transit between these by short-haul fights (small planes).

Is not too much if you go for Leisure.

I can Say that best Beaches are North Coast and East Coast.

North Coast is not affected by Tides an can swim at all states of tides and Most places at East Coast has the wide pure white sandy beach and can swim at Low tide states only.

Most Places at Eastern Side are quite but Northern part will depend on the time of the year.

April through earlier June is wet because of the long rain which start to taper off in May.

November to December are where the short rains appears.

But this is a tropical country and the weather is not predictable.Global warming has made rainfall changes in the area to be with little range of rainfall,so above months have been not much affect the Holiday as it has not been raining on daily basis and very rare to have it throughout the day.

Rest of Months are Ideal months to visit Zanzibar.

The Choice of Resort is subjet to the budget because they have seasonal Prices
