Classic Tanzania Safari and Beach

There are few sights as awe-inspiring as the Ngorongoro Crater, a world heritage site north of Arusha in the crater highlands, and unique game-viewing opportunity. After enjoying the area for a couple of nights, you’ll travel to the Serengeti National Park, a place of equal beauty and home of the iconic great wildebeest migration. After your safari experience, you’ll visit the ancient Stonetown of Zanzibar with its bustling souks and trademark spices before giving yourself some time to relax on the beach.

All the things you’re dying to ask but haven’t

This is the ultimate safari and beach trip, a real 'bucket-list' itinerary that takes you right to the heart of East Africa. Get ready for the awe-inspiring experience of seeing millions of animals migrate across the African plains, before finding the ultimate relaxation and culture on the shores of Zanzibar.

"Take in the incredible resident wildlife within the Ngorongoro Crater before following the great wildebeest migration in the Serengeti, two of the most iconic experiences on safari. These are just a couple of the safari activities on offer in Tanzania and then, of course, there is Zanzibar for rest and relaxing, the perfect end to any safari."
