3 days

Join us for an unforgettable 3 days Serengeti safari starting from Zanzibar. This Flying Serengeti safari from Zanzibar is facilitated with a return flight, that we will book for you into one of the airstrips inside Serengeti National Park. Most tours include a flight to Seronera Airstrip, in Central Serengeti. Depending on the time of travel we will recommend for you the best area to visit in Serengeti, the best camps to stay in and therefore the best airstrip to fly into.

The flight itself is an adventure of its kind. The plane flies through Arusha and on the way you will get a superb opportunity to enjoy views of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro from above as well as other magnificent views of other geographical  features in Northern Tanzania. Including the Ngorongoro crater, and the breathtaking Crater Lake at Empakai Crater in the Ngorongoro Highlands.

If your budget is not enough for a 3 days flyin Serengeti safari, it is possible to an equally fulfilling 3 days Tanzania safari from Zanzibar that includes a visit to Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Park.

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 favor 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 short 3 days safari in the Serengeti starting and finishing at Zanzibar Island.

Best time to visit for the Serengeti safari from Zanzibar

The best time to visit Serengeti from Zanzibar for safari is usually between July and September. That falls in the dry season and the most favorite months for visitors who travel especially for the wildebeests migration 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.

Location for the wildebeests herds and indeed other animals varies from time to time. 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 the best places to explore within the Serengeti and the best accommodation to stay in.

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.

3-day Serengeti safari from Zanzibar prices

An even cheaper option would be our 3 Days Mikumi safari from Zanzibar Island.

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.
