SAFARI OVERVIEW

Our 8 Days Safari and Beach Zanzibar is the shortest ‘Bush and Beach’ package that we recommend. For someone who has only about a week or so and you would like to get both the safari experience and the magic of the Spice Island of Zanzibar then this probably the best package for you.

In just 8 days we take you to the middle of the Wilderness in the most celebrated National Park in Tanzania; Serengeti National Park as well as the Eden of Africa; Ngorongoro Crater with its 600 meter deep walls where the animals Kingdom is for real. You will then fly straight from the Bush to the Beach; Zanzibar Island where you will be met and transferred to your resort.

AFFORDABLE TANZANIA SAFARI AND BEACH ZANZIBAR

The accommodations that we have included in this package are well thought out , and handpicked lodges and tented camps on the safari part which are all in the category we can term as upper mid range. Though there are no elaborate Star rating systems for hotels in Tanzania, but in our own assessment we can rate them at 3.5 – 4 star accommodations in international standards. We have not only chosen the safest and descent places but we have chosen the most affordable, or in other words the places that you get value for money. All these efforts to ensure that you get an affordable Tanzania Safari and Beach Zanzibar Package, but still not compromising on safety and cleanliness.

This package can be done by staying at the upper mid-range lodging that we have included or even at some middle class places depending on your preference and budget, but we can customize the same package to include more of Standard luxury or even deluxe lodgings if you want the accommodation upgraded further. You can also do the safari part as a basic camping safari if you want that.  Just contact our Safari experts and they will customize the tour package for you.
