2 days Safari from Zanzibar where to visit?
This safari tour as indicated takes you to Mikumi National Park, by far the best park near Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar especially if you are in for a quick wildlife encounter or if you are in a tight budget. Mikumi National Park’s landscapes can easily be compared with the Savannah in Serengeti with a lot of animals that can be spotted even from a few meters after entering the park’s gate.
If you have a budget that is a little higher you can take our 2 days Tanzania safari from Zanzibar; with a visit to Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Crater.
