Looks like an interesting destination. I have no first hand knowledge but I'll bet there are a lot of opportunties from shore and boat and I would definitely take fly gear. Expect encounters with all manner of toothy critters so some wire should be in the kit. I would bet you'll find big bones, jacks, possibly Tarpon (they grow big on the Atlantic side of Africa - not sure about the Indian Ocean side?

Any more insights from World Travellers?

According to web resources the south east coast of zanzibar has excellent flats fishing for bonefish... check out 39 deg / 30 mins lat/long!

definitely bring the rods!
