I can't imagine it being cheaper to buy here at late notice. There are no direct flights from here (or Dubai) but I would recommend looking at Oman Air via Muscat, an excellent little airline and it keeps you away from the dodgier African carriers. I think you're looking at around 400 euros return.

Is that Tanzania (Dar Es Salaam)? why not look at an Etihad option with AD stopover.

That's a good idea. Then you'd just need the connecting flight from Dar to Zanzibar. Etihad don't seem to have through fares to Zanzibar but even their cheapest fares from Dublin to Dar allow free stopovers in AD.

Emirates may be even cheaper but you'd have to make the easy trip from Dubai to AD and back again.

You don't need any vaccinations for UAE. Zanzibar is a long way away, so it's best to look on the parts of Trip Advisor that cover Tanzania.
