14 days Tanzania safari and zanzibar
Cheetah, Safari in Serengeti

This package is famous with families and partners who wish to make the best of their visit to Tanzania and Africa at large. Tanzania safari and beach Zanzibar is such a splendid way to visit Africa and a good value for your money. This is due to the fact that the wildlife safari in  Northern Tanzania includes both the famous Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater which are both UNESCO world heritage sites and biosphere reserves. Apart from the Ngorongoro and Serengeti National Park, you get to visit and see wildlife in often disregarded gems of Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park which is known for its legendary tree-climbing lions.

Tarangire National Park is located about 2 hours from Arusha along the Arusha – Dodoma highway within the Larger Manyara region. The park will amaze you with the large herds of elephants (sometimes 300-strong) and the massive baobab trees that dwarf the elephants below them.

2 weeks of safari in Tanzania and a beach vacation in Zanzibar

The 2 weeks Tanzania safari and Zanzibar package as published should be a sample program that can be booked as is, but like all our packages can be customized to suit your budget and preferences. The program can be customized for example to include one night more at Serengeti National Park and therefore include one day less excluding Lake Manyara National Park which is the smallest of them all for example.
