10 DAYS SAFARI & ZANZIBAR

Combine a safari with a few days of pure relaxation on Zanzibar. 

The 4-day safari is perfect for anyone who’s hoping to see all of the big five – lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant and cape buffalo. You can find elephants in Lake Manyara or Tarangire National park, dozens of lions in the Serengeti and buffaloes more or less everywhere. Leopards and rhinoceros are a bit more difficult to find, with only a few dozen rhinos left in Ngorongoro crater, but we’ll do whatever we can to help make it happen. And of course there’s so many other species that are just as interesting, and of which you’ll be able to see plenty as well! 

After your safari, you’ll fly to Zanzibar for 5 days on the beach. You can spend them simply relaxing or we can add some excursions if you feel a little bit more active.

ITINERARY

Please pick your desired comfort level below to see the matching itinerary. 

We use exactly the same cars and guides for each comfort level and excursions are identical as well. You’ll visit exactly the same places and there is no difference in comfort or quality during your game drives or visits. The choice you make below only impacts your accommodation.

In the comfort version of this package, we suggest a standard lodge safari and accommodation options in Moshi, Arusha and on Zanzibar that offer a good comfort level. All options have swimming pools except those inside the parks and all have private bathrooms. You’ll sleep in permanent tents or rooms with real beds and proper bed linen. Meals are prepared in the restaurant of your accommodation and served at comfortable tables. 

Day 1: Arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO) and transfer to Arusha

Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO), our driver will be waiting for you. He’ll drive you to your hotel in Arusha in about 1-1,5 hour. Once arrived, you can finally rest after your long flight and start taking it all in. If there’s enough time, you can spend some time in the center of Arusha, or simply relax at your hotel. If you arrive early, we can even arrange an activity for you during the day (to be booked in advance). We’re more than happy to help you with information about places to go, where to eat and other practical arrangements.

AccommodationPazuri Inn in Arusha (standard room).

Meals: dinner included.

Day 2: Arusha – Lake Manyara or Tarangire National Park

We’ll pick you up at your accommodation in Arusha and drive about 2 to 3 hours to Lake Manyara or Tarangire National Park. We’ll pick the park depending on things like the time of the year in order to give you the best experience. As all our tours are private, you can of course also request the park of your choice, if you have any. You’ll have lunch in the park and spend the rest of the day game driving. Lake Manyara and Tarangire are both famous for their huge amounts of elephants, and in Lake Manyara you might even catch a glimpse of a tree-sitting lion! We’ll bring you to your accommodation before the evening sets in, either in the park or outside of it depending on the type you picked. Dinner will be served at the accommodation.

AccommodationKudu Lodge in Karatu (standard room).

Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner included. 

Day 3: Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, it’s time to hit the road. You have quite a bumpy ride ahead of you today, as you’ll have to drive through Ngorongoro conservation area before reaching the entrance of Serengeti National Park. You’ll have lunch and the rest of the afternoon is reserved for a stunning game drive through the central part of the Serengeti. You’ll witness an extraordinary nature, as well as an abundance of animals like lions, gnus, Thomson gazelles and zebras. In the evening we’ll bring you to your accommodation, where you’ll have dinner and an early sleep.

AccommodationAcacia Central Camp inside the Serengeti (standard tent).

Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

Day 4: Serengeti National Park

The morning is dedicated to another game drive in the central part of the Serengeti, and we can plan the day keeping in mind your wishes. Our top tip: get up early to witness the Serengeti at sunrise (from your accommodation or during a short game drive), have breakfast at your accommodation and spend the rest of the morning game driving. In the afternoon, you’ll start heading back towards Ngorongoro conservation area, with the chance to stop and see more wildlife along the way. We’ll provide dinner at your accommodation again.

AccommodationNgorongoro Tortilis Camp inside Ngorongoro Conservation Area (standard room).

Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha

The days starts early again today. After breakfast you’ll head towards Ngorongoro crater for the last day of your trip. You’ll enter the crater over the steep path that leads down. Get ready to take in the amount of different animals you’re about to see – only giraffes and a few other species are absent, but other than that the wildlife density in this area is nothing less but impressive. You’re almost guaranteed to see large numbers of gnus (wildebeest), zebras, buffaloes and gazelles and chances are you’ll be able to spot rhinos and leopards. You’ll have lunch in the park and drive back to Arusha after that.
