Tanzania & Zanzibar Classic

Experience Tanzania’s phenomenal wildlife, cultural history & natural wonders

Start your journey in the safari capital of Arusha before  setting out to the Serengeti National park, world renowned for the annual wildebeest and zebra migration and finest game viewing on the planet. Become captivated by the traditional Masai warriors in their scarlet robes and nomadic way of life, when visiting a local homestead. Descend 600m into the only un-flooded, volcanic caldera in the world, home to the highest concentration of predators and prey in the Ngorongoro Crater. Watch out for scavenging hyenas and tree-climbing lions during a game drive in Tarangire National Park before ending your safari in Arusha and fly to the legendary “Spice Island” of Zanzibar epitomizing all that stands for African exoticness.

A striking mix of Indian, Arabic and African cultural influences for centuries has produced one of East Africa’s prized possessions. With its dreamy beachscapes, alluring turquoise water, aromatic spice farms, forest interiors, cobbled alleyways and whitewashed mosques, all deeply seeped in history remnant of the old slave trade. Explore the secrets of the intriguing narrow lanes and haggle with local market vendors in the heart of Stonetown and end at the sparkling golden beaches, coconut infused palms and the idyllic crystal waters of the Indian Ocean. Relax, unwind and soak up the timeless essence of Zanzibar.
