I am trying to arrange a trip from Israel to Zanzibar on July/August.

Has anyone gone? I am looking for advice on finding cheap flights? Good hotel advice? Activities?

Make sure to also look into Mafia Island. Flights to Nairobi tend to be significantly cheaper. Fly there,
and then with Precision Air to Dar Es Salaam. https://www.precisionairtz.com/ -- or overland via Arusha.

Zanzibar has grown very popular with Israelis over the last few years. Arkia has direct flights that can be very cheap sometimes (they may not show up on search sites like Priceline so check Arkia's website.

You can also use lifemiles to get there. Flights are on Ethiopian airlines and cost 35k round trip economy or 70k Business class.

Unfortunately, the Arkia 6 hour direct flights depart only on Shabbes morning at the moment.
