Zanzibar End of April?

HI Everyone, never been to Zanzibar and looking at going last week of April.... however nervous of reports that places close in April/May due to so much rain. One report said in April it rains all day everyday. Unlikely to be able to travel another time of the year. I realise its tropical and dont mind some rain - just dont want to have to sit in our room for a whole week. Would you advise going or not going? Secondly if we do go in April - East or West. North or South? Its a family holiday, kids happy to swim and laze around.

I would expect rain every day but only in relatively quick bursts as any clouds blow over quickly (Zanzibar is a coral island and hence very flat). Of course it may not rain at all, in which case, if you were expecting it, would be a bonus. I would certainly not expect you to be forced indoors all day. As to which areas to go for, hard to say, each has there appeal....

I hope this helps.
