  7. All payment to be made strictly by cheque / Demand Draft / Direct bank transfer in favour of 'COX AND KINGS LIMITED'.

  8. INDEPENDENT STYLE : Please note that this is an Independent style G Adventures tour. This means that we do not have dedicated group departures, but rather that we offer the trip on any given day that you choose. As such, there may or may not be other passengers booked on the exact same day as you. Locally, for your spice tour on day 3, you may have the option to be pooled with other passengers who have not booked through G Adventures.

  9. FLIGHTS : Flights are not included and must be purchased separately.

  10. ARRIVAL/DEPARTURE TRANSFERS : Complimentary arrival and departure transfers can be arranged from/to the airport or the ferry terminal. Please provide us with your exact arrival and departure details at time of booking.

  11. WEATHER : Zanzibar is a great place to visit year-round. It generally has a hot, humid tropical climate. The coolest and driest time to visit is between late June and October. The temperatures are a higher from late December to March. Zanzibar's main rainy season lasts from March until June, and there are strong winds and ocean currents in April to June. This makes this time the least favourable for visiting the island, as it can rain for days on end, and the choppy water affects the snorkelling/diving conditions below the surface.

  12. ALCOHOL : As Zanzibar is inhabited by a prominently Muslim population, alcohol is not readily available for sale in some restaurants and hotels. This may include your accommodation in Stone Town, on days 1 and 2.

  13. RAMADAN : Depending on the lunar cycle, Ramadan will fall between June 18th and July 17th, 2015. Please note that Ramadan is a month of fasting observed by Muslims throughout the world, during which time the followers of Islam should not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. There may be some limitations to services and disruptions to schedules during Ramadan in Muslim areas, but generally our tours still operate effectively during this period and food is available to non-muslims throughout the day. It is very important to display increased cultural sensitivity during Ramadan. Please wear loose fitting clothes, that cover knees and shoulders, and try to avoid eating, drinking or smoking in public out of respect for those who can't at that time.

  14. ELECTRICITY : The power supply in Tanzania is nominally 240VAC, 50hz. Variable voltage, spikes and sporadic, unexpected, unscheduled power cuts of varying duration can be expected.

  15. YELLOW FEVER : As of January 26th 2011 the Director General of the Zanzibar Commission for Tourism declared a valid Yellow Fever Certificate is required at all points of entry into Zanzibar. This includes the airport, seaport and other points of entry. Failure to provide the correct certification may result in an on the spot vaccination or $50 fine. Please check with your health expert for advice on Yellow Fever and other inoculations required for this area.
