The East Africa Family Overland tour starts in Nairobi and ends in Zanzibar. The East Africa Family Overland is a safari tour that takes 17 days taking you from Nairobi to Zanzibar and through other destinations in Africa.

If you have kids aged from 7 to 17, this is the family adventure holiday that you cannot miss. The amazement and pure joy in their faces when you spend two nights camping on the plains of the Serengeti or spotting a rhino at the Ngorongoro Crater will be something you never forget as a parent.

This trip is ideal for families, with wild camping, beautiful hotels and so much wildlife. Add to this the cultures of the Massai and walking through the lands of the Irente peoples in the Usambara Mountains and you have a heck of an adventure.

Then there is the balance, the beautiful beach hotels on the white sands of the Indian Ocean on Zanzibar and exploring the night food market and hotel bars of Stone Town. This is a trip that you and your children will never forget.

Travel Insurance

For this East Africa Family Overland tour getting the required visa(s) is the responsibility for each individual traveller, as visa requirements vary depending on your nationality. We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
