Ahoy mateys, escape the cold, depressing UK winter and try somewhere different for your holiday?
We have discovered these amazingly cheap flights with Qatar to the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar.
Home of the wild dolphins, paradise beaches and the Insta-famous Rock restaurant - this a beautiful location to spend a relaxing few weeks. We have also included the option to explore Tanzania further with flights to the mainland.
Whether it be a honeymoon, a getaway with your mates or the ultimate solo adventure, Zanzibar is the place to be. So, what are you waiting for? These flights won't hang around for long!
Please note that some of these dates depart in the low/ rainy season. However, there is still a good chance of sun during these times.

OK so you secured your flights, now what about accommodation? Well you could take help from our clever hotel comparison tool in finding something that suits your budget, whether that be a hostel or a nice 4* hotel.
We highly recommend the Indigo Beach resort. Not only is it cheap, but it's right on the beach too. Airport transfers can also be arranged directly with the hotel.
Not ready to come home?
We don't blame you. Grab the chance to explore other areas of Tanzania with cheap flights to the mainland, allowing you to turn this beach holiday into a Tanzanian adventure.
Check out our flight finder for great fares to Kilimanjaro, just for starters!
Kilimanjaro is the gateway to many of Tanzania's incredible safari parks such as Arusha, Ngorongoro crater and the Serengeti. For an unforgettable excursion to these incredible locations we recommend PK Adventures. They will create a safari trip or Kilimanjaro hike based around your preferences and group size. They also offer any length of trip from 1 - 7 days, giving you the chance to personalise your excursion!
Again, you will need somewhere to stay whilst on the mainland, we love Kaliwa Lodge as (when the clouds feel like it) you can enjoy an incredible view of Mount Kilimanjaro. The lodge also can arrange day trips and the stay comes with a fantastic breakfast included.
Fancy giving back to the local community? In the local town of Moshi, there are a number of guest houses run by ex-street, underprivileged and at risk young adults, that teach them the skills that will allow them to create a better life for themselves. Why not support one of these great causes with a night or two at More than A Drop (breakfast is also included!)
Vaccinations & Visas
You will need to check which vaccinations and booster jabs you will nee with your local GP before jetting off. Additionally, if you decide to go to mainland Tanzania (or indeed any other African destination) and fly back into Zanzibar, you will need to gain a yellow fever vaccination certificate to hand into immigration upon arrival. If you do not have this you will either be requested to have one at the gate (at a cost) or you could be refused entry into the country
A tourist visa is required to visit Tanzania, these cost USD$50 and can be arranged once you have landed.
