Overview

Two of East Africa’s most popular highlights make this Serengeti & Zanzibar trek tour the spectacular experience that it is. Leaving Nairobi, we head to Arusha where we will board 4 x 4 vehicles to head to the Serengeti National Park to watch some of the largest herds of wild antelope and wildebeest graze their way across the open plains. We’ll also explore the Ngorongoro Crater where we will continue our game viewing spectacular. The Ngorongoro Crater is a truly unique place with more to offer than simply wildlife viewing. It is a one in a lifetime opportunity to explore a region that was home to our earliest ancestors. We then move from bush to beach early in the morning as we journey south to the coastal town of Bagamoyo. We will discover a whole new world on the historical spice island of Zanzibar. We head North to relax on tropical white sand beaches and snorkel in aqua blue waters of the Indian Ocean. We will also have some time to explore the historic area of Stone Town, also known as Mji Mkongwe (Swahili for ‘old town’), before catching an afternoon ferry back to Dar es Salaam where this epic adventure tour ends. Excludes Activity Package; R 15 950 per person and single supplement. 

This tour has a Comfort Option available.
