The world’s most stunning wildlife experience combined with a luxury beach destination…
Why a Tanzania Zanzibar Safari ?
In a world like it is today, it becomes key to spend your time wisely. And since a journey to Africa is not something you do everyday, we believe it is wise to combine two of the best destinations in one safari. Our Tanzania Zanzibar combination is therefore probably the most popular safaris in our portfolio.
On the Tanzania part we take you to the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara or even to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and on the Zanzibar part you can simply relax at some of the worlds’ most amazing beaches and resorts.
