Trip Itinerary

  1. Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to Zanzibar


    Combine the best of both worlds - safari adventure and paradise escape with this all-in-one! Our Africa adventure starts in Dar es Salaam, where we ferry across to the magical 'Spice Island' of Zanzibar to spend three blissful nights. Discover the island's idyllic, palm-fringed beaches, winding cobbled alleys and lush tropical forests, as well as its intriguing history as a major trading centre for spices. For centuries, Zanzibaris would trade with the people of the Arabian Peninsula and ply the ocean in simple dhow sailboats, relying on the annual trade winds for passage. The Arab influence is evident in the architecture and diverse street stall offerings of the capital, Stone Town, so keep your eyes peeled when wandering the city's historic pathways. The next four days are on your own watch, so spend your time exploring at your own pace. Please note: As we leave the truck on the mainland, basic safari lodge/hotel accommodation and breakfast on Zanzibar is included. However, lunches and dinners are your own to arrange. We usually divide our nights here between accommodation in Stone Town and accommodation on one of the northern beaches, but there are no set activities - the time is entirely yours to do as you please.
