Volcanoes Savanna and Beach Rwanda and Tanzania Holiday

Inspirational safari & beach holiday to Tanzania and Rwanda

Combining 3 East Africa's highlights, this trip will explore the mountainous rainforest of Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, the game-rich Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the Indian Ocean Island of Zanzibar. Your trip starts with Volcanoes National Park where you will experience first-hand what it is like to see mountain gorillas in the wild.  Stay at Virunga Lodge which is perched high on a ridge overlooking the Virunga Volcanoes. 

Following Rwanda, you will fly directly into the Serengeti. With the great migration in full flow throughout the year you will stay in a mobile camp in the Serengeti to maximise your chances of being in the right place at the right time. Enjoy activities including game drives, guided walks, bush picnics, sundowners and hot air balloon flights.  The wildlife is outstanding throughout. Finish with some well-earned relaxation time on the island of Zanzibar. At Breezes Beach Club & Spa immerse yourself in the crystal-clear water of the Indian Ocean, indulge in a massage, dive the Coral reef or take a tour to historic Stowntown.
