Serengeti needs no explanation. It is perhaps the most exciting safari destination in the world. But the other national parks in northern Tanzania are equally beautiful, each with its own, very different landscape and a wide diversity of wildlife and nature. What you do not see in one park you may well see elsewhere. And this package has a cherry on top! Zanzibar – full of eastern promise, culture and history!

Our 2 Week packages usually show 11 days but can include an additional day at either the beginning (in case you arrive late evening) or at the end (in case you leave early morning). The additional day includes the extra cost for the overnight stay close to the airport. In any case we can add one or more days at any point (extra cost) on any of our packages – if you want to see more, do more or relax more. Tip: an extra day in Arusha would allow you to tour Arusha Town and visit Arusha National Park at the foot of Mount Meru with views to Kilimanjaro.

Click here for an almost identical itinerary but instead of flying to Zanzibar you drive to the Usumbara Mountains, stay overnight there, then drive on to Zanzibar. You have one less day on Zanzibar.

Day 0: Arusha - for parties arriving late evening (small additional cost).

Meet and greet at Kilimanjaro Airport on the evening of your arrival and transfer to your accommodation.

The river beguilingly lures the herds of plains migrants from the desiccated surrounding area to its shrunken – but permanent – blackish waters during the dry season.. During the dry season, the Tarangire pools are clotted with thirsty migrants, and the elephants begin to dig for underground streams in the dry riverbed. Tarangire National Park is said to have the highest recorded number of breeding bird species for any habitat in the world.
