Weather in May-June

Hi!

Just wanted to hear your opinions about going to Pemba in late May-mid June. I know the 'long rain' period goes from March until May-June.

Is it very bad? Will it be safe flying from Zanzibar?!

Unfortunately Fundu Lagoon closes during that time :-(

thank you!

May- June are the rain decreasing months and the beginning of Winter windy season here in Tanzania ,so i don't think you will be faced with heavy rains and generally speaking it should be safe to fly!

I didn't get you when you say "Fundu Lagoon closes during that time " can you explain further,what you mean ?

while In Pemba don't miss out a visit to Ngezi Forest and natural "untouched" Vumawimbi beach on the northern part of the island, just after Konde town,you will thank me later :-)!

Cheers & Peace

Hi,

Please also remember many small hotels also have to conduct maintenance etc. whilst closed, which may not be appropriate whilst the hotel is open. Fundu will reopen on the 15th June. If you need further assistance please just ask.
