About this independent tour
This itinerary operates on a private basis, but you may be travelling with other passengers on game drives in the Serengeti.
ARUSHA The airport here is the domestic one used for fly-in safaris, and is around 15 minutes from the town of Arusha. Visit beautiful Arusha National Park, set against the backdrop of Mount Meru and home to the alkaline, blue- and green-hued Momella lakes.
SERENGETI The Serengeti is the poster child of Tanzania’s national parks, home to the river-streaked Seronera Valley and acacia-dotted, short-grassed plains in the south. This fly-in safari takes you to the heart of big cat country. Stay in an authentic safari tent with spectacular savannah views and head out on game drives to spot the Big Five.
ZANZIBAR The Zanzibar archipelago is a jewel in the Indian Ocean, just 60 miles off Africa's east coast. After your wildlife adventure, jet off to the ‘spice island’ of Zanzibar for an idyllic beach break. Relax on sugar-white beaches and visit the capital, Stone Town – a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a maze of narrow streets and historic buildings.
Tailor your tour
This itinerary is flexible, so you can choose your own number of nights, add excursions and change accommodation. You could also add in more of Tanzania’s national parks to form a longer safari ahead of your beach stay.
