February in Zanzibar, the archipelago located in the Indian Ocean just off the coast of east Africa, is extremely warm and temperate. Visitors will find that the weather is beyond beautiful and that the beaches and surrounding towns and areas are the perfect retreat for the world weary traveler.

The average high temperature one can expect in February is much the same as in January, around 29°C (84°F) during the day time.

Nighttime lows average at around 26°C (79°F), which is only just slightly warmer than January.

The average temperature of the Indian Ocean off the shores of Zanzibar in January is 29°C (84°F). Absolutely amazing for swimming, snorkelling, diving, and any of a hundred other activities that visitors can participate in in the waters here. 

February's average precipitation is about 56mm or 2¼ inches. Visitors can expect no more than a handful of rainy days throughout the month and on average about 9 hours of sunshine per day.

After checking in to the resort, many visitors make their way to Stone Town and the many open air markets that can be found there. Whether it's a hand-woven carpet or spices or fresh local seafood, it can all be found in one of bazaars in the old town.

Visitors are advised to haggle with sellers and never buy the first thing that they see. Oftentimes, the same or very similar items can be found cheaper further along the street.

Of course the beaches are an absolute must for visitors to Zanzibar. There are more than 25 beaches here and one can always find an area that isn't too crowded. For a small price, visitors can even take a local dhow, a small traditional sailboat, and venture to some of the more remote outlying islands and find a piece of private paradise for the afternoon or the whole day.

World music lovers will be enthralled with the Sauti za Busara Music Festival, which happens around the second week of February and runs for 5 straight days. Musicians from all over Africa and the world join together in what has been dubbed 'the friendliest festival on the planet'.
