Are you in Zanzibar Island and wish to take a short to the Serengeti National Park? Look no further. The Serengeti National Park is one of the largest wildlife parks located in Northern Tanzania and the park has been repeatedly voted as the best wildlife park in Africa. It wasn’t by fluke or favour because the Serengeti plains are teeming with wildlife and birdlife almost all year round. Due to high demand for safari tours from Zanzibar we introduced this shor 3 days safari in the Serengeti starting and finishing at Zanzibar Island.
Best time to visit Serengeti for safari
The Serengeti is National Park can be toured for wildlife safari throughout the year but if one can avoid the long rains in April / May then that would be a good thing to do. The best time is usually in the drier season with the months starting from July to September being the most favorite months for visitors who travel for the wildebeests migration safari. Location for the wildebeests herds and indeed other animals varies from time to time and you will be duly advised as to which area you should stay in during your short Serengeti safari from Zanzibar. Just inform our safari experts when you wish to travel and they will be happy to advise you on that.
How to take a 3 day Short Serengeti Safari from Zanzibar
Serengeti National Park is located in the larger Serengeti Ecosystem at the border to Kenya. Very far from Zanzibar so there is no way to do the safari by road. One can only visit the Serengeti from Zanzibar by flying into an airstrip within the park. The most commonly used airstrip is Seronera Airstrip in central Serengeti but as mentioned above the area that you are staying at n the Serengeti will determine which airstrip you will landing when you arrive from Serengeti. When visiting the Northern Serengeti you may land into Kogatende, or Lobo Airtsrip. Other aisrtrips include the Fort Ikoma Airstrip and Singita Airstrips which are loacted outside the park.
In our 3 days or 4 days safaris in Tanzania from Zanzibar we usually include return flights.
Cost for the 3 day Short Serengeti Safari from Zanzibar
The price for the 3 days safari from Zanzibar depends on which flight we get but mostly on the accommodation that you want use. We can use midrange or standard luxury lodges or tented camps or even top end accommodations. The prices for the Serengeti safari also depends on how many people are coming with you. We offer this tour as a private tour and not as a group tour that anyone can join.
The 3 days safari from Zanzibar costs more than the same 3 days safari from Arusha mainly because of the cost of the flights involved but also because of the extra transport costs involved in the tour from Zanzibar. Our safari car and driver guide will have to leave early (one day before your arrival date into Serengeti). This is because the guide has to be at the airstrip early to meet you on your arrival. Get in touch with one of our experts and he/she will help you in the hassle free organization for your next 3-day Tanzania safari in Serengeti starting from Zanzibar Island.
