Tanzania, the largest country in East Africa, is considered by many to offer the best game viewing on the continent and the greatest variety of wildlife in the world.
On this tour we will enjoy several exciting game drives in the finest National Parks and game reserves, including Lake Manyara and the Serengeti Plains. Expect to see rhinos, hippos, cheetahs, leopards, elephants, buffalo and the common plains game such as zebra, giraffe, a variety of bird life and several species of antelope and monkey.
We will travel safely and comfortably in specially designed 4 x 4 vehicles seating six people with large viewing windows (each person has a window seat to afford unobstructed viewing). Your driver / guide is an expert on the local customs, traditions and location of wildlife.
This part of the world also boasts an amazing natural environment, as we will see when we visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ngorongoro Crater with its striking scenery and close range viewing of wildlife.
The island of Zanzibar, just 40 kms off the coast of Tanzania, is a tropical paradise with mile upon mile of pristine white sand beaches, fringed by coconut palms. During our stay we visit Stone Town (also a World Heritage Site), with its maze of narrow streets and alleys that have changed little over the last 200 years. You will see why Zanzibar is often referred to as "The Spice Island" as we visit a local Spice Farm and learn about the rich history that makes this destination so intriguing.
While on safari we will enjoy a mixture of accommodations including beautiful lodges. While in Zanzibar we will stay at a First Class hotel.
This tour is suitable only for the fit and active traveller.
