Overview

Two of East Africa’s most popular highlights make this Zanzibar & Serengeti trek tour the spectacular experience that it is. Discover a whole new world on the historical spice island of Zanzibar where you will explore the ancient city of Stone Town, also known as Mji Mkongwe (Swahili for “old town”). We head North to relax on tropical white sand beaches and snorkel in aqua blue waters of the warm Indian Ocean. After soaking up the sun in Zanzibar, we then move from beach to bush. We 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. The Serengeti National Park is the most photographed and filmed game reserves in Africa. With an incredibly dense population of wildlife and never-ending rolling plains, the Serengeti offers an authentic and idyllic wilderness safari. We’ll also dip down into the Ngorongoro Crater to continue the game viewing experience. This UNESCO world heritage site also holds a wealth of fascinating areas of interest for historians and the general public. On our last days we cross the border into Kenya and make our way to Nairobi where our journey ends on arrival.
