Itinerary - Tanzania 360° Collection: from the Savannah to Zanzibar

day 1

Welcome to Tanzania!

Check in: Our journey starts from Arusha!

Round trip flights are not included in the package, so you can choose from where and when you want to fly. This is to give you maximum freedom of choice!

Check-in at the hotel in Arusha and meet the rest of your group! We will have the evening to recover from the long flight - let's grab a drink by the pool and some food together to toast to the beginning of our safari adventure!

Included: overnight stay with breakfast

Not included : transfer from the airport, meals and drinks

day 2

Arusha National Park

Monkey paradise

Let the adventure begin! After meeting our guide, we will head towards Arusha National Park . Here we will dedicate ourselves to our first day of safari: this park is famous for its blue monkeys and is the only park in the area where it is possible to see the beautiful Colobus monkeys! Here it is also possible to carry out a Walking Safari, a beautiful walk in the middle of the park in close contact with the animals, obviously escorted by the park rangers. What better way to start our adventure than by walking in nature?

Included: overnight stay with breakfast, jeep with driver and entrance to Arusha National Park

Money pot: walking safari tour

Not included : transfer from the airport, meals and drinks

day 3

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park

We set off north and reach Tarangire National Park , famous for its wildlife, which are at their most spectacular between June and September, in the dry period. During this time thousands of animals, wildebeests, buffaloes and antelopes migrate towards the river in search of water. Lions, leopards and other predators follow the herds, obviously hunting their daily meal, and therefore following that famous circle of life. Tarangire is also home to over 500 varieties of birds, so we'll have our work cut out for us today with binoculars and spotting scopes. Will we already be able to see the famous lions?

In the evening we then move to Karatu, where we will spend the night.

Included: overnight stay with full board, jeep with driver, entrance to Tarangire National Park

Not included: drinks

day 4

Lake Manyara

Journey to Lake Manyara

After breakfast we start heading to Lake Manyara National Park , where we will spend the day on a safari trying to spot many wild animals! Lake Manyara National Park is known for its tree-climbing lions (cool right?!) and the park covers 390sqkm and is a sanctuary of over 400 species of birds which include pink flamingos, pelicans, storks, Ibis and Egyptian geese. There is also a huge herd of buffalo and elephant - will we be lucky enough to see it? Fingers crossed!

We will also have the opportunity to visit a unique local village where representatives of more than 120 different tribes live together in peace: Mto wa Mbu . We get on our bicycles and enter the streets characterised by the scents and colours of local craftsmanship, from paintings to wooden objects, and pay a visit to the local market.

Included: overnight stay with full board, jeep with driver, entrance to Lake Manyara National Park, bike excursion to Mto wa Mbu village

Not included: drinks

day 5

Ngorongoro National Park

Safari to the Ngorongoro Crater

New day, new safari! Today we descend with the jeeps into the crater and we will spend the whole day on safari. One of the largest craters in the world at 20 km wide, Ngorongoro is also one of the best wildlife viewing areas where you can even see black rhinos, if you're lucky! The crater is 2,286 m above sea level, surrounded by very steep walls and covers 260 square km. Over 30,000 animals live here, and almost half of them are zebras and wildebeests: it is no coincidence that Ngorongoro is listed as a world heritage site!

day 6

The Serengeti Plains

The endless plains

We wake up early and set off in our jeeps - in a couple of hours we will arrive at the Serengeti National Park which is undoubtedly the most famous wildlife sanctuary in the world with wildebeests, antelopes and gazelles that pass through during migration. This is arguably going to be one of the best days of the tour and hopefully we will see some incredible animals up close!

Included: full board overnight stay, jeep rental with driver, entrance to the Serengeti National Park

Not included: drinks

day 7

Serengeti National Park: Lobo Valley

Lobo Valley

At dawn we wake up and set off again to arrive at Lobo in the remote northern Serengeti. The Lobo Valley is one of the natural routes for the annual wildebeest migration and this area has one of the highest concentrations of lions in Africa , which we will admire from the safety of our jeep. Don't forget your camera!

This is our last day in this spectacular park. We cross it all from north to south to look for the animals that we weren't able to see the previous days: we have to see them all by the end of the journey! In the evening we return to our accommodation in Karatu.

Included: overnight stay with full board, car rental with driver, entrance to the Serengeti National Park

Not included: drinks

day 8

Karatu: Local Culture

Immersion in local culture

Today we will pay a visit to the natives, that is, the Bushmen, locally known as Hadzabe or Tindiga. The Hadzapi people live on Lake Eyasi and are an original hunter-gatherer population of East Africa. Then there are the Taturu, sometimes known as Mang'ati, who still live according to their traditional customs.

In the afternoon we move to Arusha to catch our flight which will take us directly to the paradisiacal beaches of Zanzibar! It is time to relax!

Included: overnight stay with breakfast, jeep rental with driver and domestic flight Arusha - Zanzibar

Zanzibar and the Indian Ocean

The Indian Ocean

Today we are armed only with flip flops and swimsuits! In the day time we can visit local markets and explore the area, while in the afternoon we can head to the beach and admire the Indian Ocean in front of us! Let's put our feet up and enjoy our first ocean view sunset of our trip!

Money pot: any entrance fees, activities and excursions

day 10

Zanzibar: Snorkelling on Kendwa beach

Into the sea!

Today we have the day free and at our disposal so let's decide together how best to use our time here in Zanzibar. Shall we just relax on Kendwa beach? Maybe we will then embark on an exciting boat tour among the crystal clear waters and white beaches. There is also plenty of opportunity here for snorkelling enthusiasts!

Included: overnight stay with breakfast

Money pot: any entrance fees, activities and excursions

day 11

Zanzibar

Relax and crystal clear water!

It's our last full day together in Tanzania and it's up to us to decide whether to venture into one of the many bays and islands of this African island or to stay and relax on the beach.

After seeing the endless African savannah, the immense herds of animals, the dawn among the acacias, the local tribes, the beaches and the crystal clear water, it is time to say goodbye to Tanzania, but not before having toasted this adventure together with cocktails at sunset.
