Are you going on a Safari holiday in Zanzibar? It’s important to know that Zanzibar has introduced a new tax and levy which will impact all visitors to Zanzibar from 1 July 2015.
At this stage, the tax is divided into an infrastructure levy and tax. The levy is US$1 per person per night and payable direct by guests at their accommodation. the infrastructure tax is US$1 per person on departure at airports and seaports to any destination within Tanzania (domestic).
The existing airport safety fee for passengers travelling outside Tanznaia is usually included in your ticket.
Of course we’d prefer that guests are not made to pay directly, but we have been advised by Government that these taxes have to be collected at points of service, that is the hotels, airports and seaports.
Zanzibar is still an awesome holiday destination for a beach break after your safari holiday. You can boat and fish for fun!
