Crater, Migration and Tanzania Beach Escape

Inspirational safari & beach holiday to Tanzania

Take in Tanzania's famous safari highlights, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, and finish with a beach stay on Zanzibar Island. Explore the wildlife rich Ngorongoro Crater, staying at Entamanu Ngorongoro Camp and then hop over by light aircraft to the Serengeti National Park. To maximize your chances of seeing the wildebeest migration you will stay in the small mobile camp, Serengeti Safari Camp. Whatever time of year you travel it will be well placed for the herds to pass through.

Discover 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. After your exciting safari it's off to Zanzibar Island, staying at Asilia Matemwe Lodge. With a shallow, coral-fringed lagoon it's the perfect place to kick back and relax after a busy safari, but if you are still feeling active, there's opportunities for diving, snorkeling, dhow trips and visits to Stone Town and community villages.
