Northern Tanzania Safari Highlights and Zanzibar Beach Holiday

Inspirational safari & beach holiday to Tanzania

This safari and beach itinerary takes in the highlights of Tanzania's famous Northern Circuit and concludes with a relaxing stay on the island of Zanzibar. Staying in Nomad Tanzania camps you will visit the Northern Circuits' key highlights including Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. Kuro Tarangire, Entamanu Ngorongoro and Lamai Serengeti camps are in truly outstanding settings. They are light-footed camps with no compromise on style and comfort. Explore these vastly different landscapes and enjoy activities including game drives, guided walks, bush picnics, sundowners and hot air balloon flights.

The wildlife is outstanding throughout. If you are visiting at the right time of year, you may even have the chance of witnessing the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti. After an active safari, relaxing on a tropical beach in Zanzibar will be just the medicine to conclude a memorable African holiday.
