Things to consider when taking pictures on Zanzibar:

  • Taking pictures of governmental buildings, vehicles or persons is strictly prohibited
  • Taking pictures focussing individuals without asking permission is considered rude. A polite request for permission, maybe supported by a small donation of 1000 – 2000 Tsh (app. 1 USD) however should get you your desired picture.

Pictures of buildings and sceneries, including people, can be taken any time.
