Your Destinations

The historic spice island of Zanzibar lies just off the coast of Tanzania, and promises visitors a once-in-a-lifetime holiday experience, whether that be at the tail end of a thrilling safari or independently as an island adventure. Zanzibar caters for every traveller, whether that be those looking to backpack on a budget, or those interested in enjoying a luxurious and exotic 5* getaway.

In terms of attractions, Zanzibar is as varied as it is beautiful, ensuring guests in search of diversity are constantly surprised. Stone Town should be number 1 on any tourist's bucket-list. Charismatic, full of life and rich in history and culture, the quaint, cobbled streets of Stone Town are a delight to explore, and offer up no end of treats, including the relaxed seafront promenade, the faded colonial buildings, the colourful food markets and unique touches such as the Aldabra giant tortoises at Prison Island (a short 30-minute boat ride from Stone Town itself). Given its historical focus on the spice industry, an informative spice tour is also highly recommended!

For those who simply wish to lay back, soak up the sunshine and unwind with a cocktail in hand, Zanzibar's many beaches are also destined to delight. Favourites include Nungwi and Kendwa in the north of the island, where tourists are sure to be awe-struck by an untouched Indian Ocean paradise.

Tarangire National Park

South of Lake Manyara and just over 100km from Arusha, this is a delightful, untamed gem of a park. Covering 2,600 sq km, it abounds with game and the numerous wide-bowed baobab trees create a lasting impression. Tarangire is at its finest during the dry seasons, from between June to October and December to March. This is when the Tarangire River and the various swamps attract the highest concentrations of game, providing a lifeline to thousands of species. This area is best for oryx, kudu, wildebeest, zebra, elephant and eland but leopards and massive pythons are also found here.

Manyara National Park

From whichever direction you approach Manyara, the first view is spectacular. From the east, the Rift Valley wall rises several hundred metres to form an impressive backdrop to the lake. From the west, if one is perched at the top of the escarpment, the park lies far below, with a long green strip of water that glistens in the sunlight. The vegetation around the lake’s shores is surprisingly varied and comprises mostly forest, acacia woodland and open grassland. The park covers an area of 330 sq km of which about 230 sq km is the lake itself. You can always find hippo in the Simba River, elephant in the forests and a resident herd of Cape buffalo on the open plains at Mahali Pa Nyati, which means, ‘The place of the buffalo’ in Swahili. In addition, there are approximately 400 species of birds and with some luck you might see tree-climbing lions.

Your Safari Itinerary

Depending on the duration of your trip, you will enjoy one of the following Safari options.

3 NIGHT SAFARI

Day 1: Arrival at Kilimanjaro and transfer to Arusha 
On arrival at Kilimanjaro airport you will be received by a representative and then transferred to Arusha for for dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Arusha - Tarangire National Park
You'll depart from Arusha after breakfast for a two hour drive (approx.) to Tarangire National Park. Along the way you'll pass bustling Maasai villages and the vast, open plains that have become synonymous with images of Africa. The park consists of natural vegetation mainly of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals during Tanzania's dry season. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. Driving through the parks you'll also have the opportunity to see lions, leopards, cape buffalo, and a huge variety of antelopes. If you're particularly lucky, you might even see endangered animals such as the Greater Kudu or the Fringe-Eared Oryx. 
Day 3: Manyara National Park - Arusha 
In the early morning, enjoy breakfast followed by games drives in Lake Manyara National Park. Lake Manyara is known for its tree-climbing lions and has the most pachyderms per km sq. in Tanzania. As visitors enter the gate, they'll pass into the lush forest, home to troops of baboons and blue monkeys. Buffaloes and hippos also lurch in the adjacent Hippo Pool. The vegetation eventually merges into a flat topped acacia woodland where, in the heat of the day, lions can be seen stretched on the branches of these trees - a habit prevalent to Manyara lions. Towards the late afternoon, you will drive back to Arusha for dinner and overnight. 

Day 4: Departure from Kilimanjaro Airport 
After breakfast, depending on your flight schedule you will be transferred to Kilimanjaro Airport for your connecting flight to Zanzibar.

Jozani Forest Tour & Dolphin Trip with lunch (excludes drinks)

Your Optional Excursions
In southern Zanzibar, the Jozani Forest is a fantastic reserve and the only National Park on the island. Currently waiting to become the second World Heritage Site of Zanzibar, the Jozani Chwaka Bay region is a hotspot for biodiversity. This forest is home to a number of endemic species - unique to only Zanzibar and one of the rarest monkeys in the world, the endangered Red Colobus Monkey is a joy and privilege to witness.

Your discovery will take you on a journey through the lush, tropical forest surrounded by mangroves and salt marshes and filled with diverse trees & fauna. Here, your guide will teach you about the medicinal properties of various plants and will introduce you to the animals, birds and reptiles that inhabit this enchanting rainforest.

As you look up through the luscious jungle, be on the lookout for the famous red colobus monkeys of Zanzibar who may be searching in the trees for their dinner. Accustomed to visitors, you will have no trouble watching them while they eat or play.

Walking through the mangroves will take you over the marsh, where, depending on the tide, you can see tropical fish between the roots of the mangrove and crabs wandering through the mud. Mangroves play an important role in the conservation of the environment and are an essential resource for villagers. Your guide will give you be able to inform you on the different species found in the marsh and their job in this environment.

Continue your day with a transfer to Kizimkazi, on the south coast of Zanzibar, where you’ll set out to sea to experience a half-day of dolphin watching at their favourite hangout along the shallow coast. Kizimkazi is home to many dolphins, beautiful coral reefs and tropical fish.

On this trip, you will be able to get as close as 10-20 metres to the dolphins, watching them play and jump through the water. However, dolphins are not tame and can be shy, so dolphin-spotting isn’t 100% guaranteed. On the other hand, this trip does give you the chance to sail the gorgeous coastline upon which you can admire the glistening ocean – why not head in the waters for a snorkel to see the coral reef, and swim in the clear, warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

You will then head back to the beach for a relaxing break with the crew.
