Kenya & Tanzania safari adventure Aug 17
4 - Very Good
  • Anonymous
“Saw all the infamous National parks & so much awesome wildlife, too numerous to mention. Great group, relaxing tour pace & even the camping was great! The way the trip is organised & run by the crew is flawless, I am so impressed & will definitely have consider this type of trip again.”
A GREAT TOUR WITH GREAT PEOPLE!
5 - Excellent
  • Lena Hensen Beckernbuer
“From start to finish this trip was perfect. In Tanzania, our guide was a top notch professional and extremely knowledgeable, taking us off the beaten path to provide us with an unrivaled experience in the parks. Our tour operator's advice for Tanzania were also unimpeachable. Our guide provided us with a social and political perspective no travel brochure could provide. It was a privilege for us to have him share his story with us which was honest, raw, and poignant and changed us in profound ways. We surprised by the level of hospitality from the owner of the tour operator, he organized for us a free BBq dinner at the end of our trip and he bother to drive us to the airport himself he made us felt we paid less for all we got. We recommend you to our friends and travelers.”
Such a laugh

“Seif was absolutely great! We had a great chat on the walk from the hotel to the pier. The lads on the boat were such a laugh. We enjoyed it so so much. Thanks to everyone!”

Zanzibar - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

A trip to Zanzibar will open your senses to idyllic sand beaches filled with palm trees, the rich aromatic air of the spice markets, and a chilled atmosphere to take things pole – meaning slowly in Swahili. Plan a holiday to Zanzibar to take advantage of its warm tropical waters for an underwater adventure, curvy alleys to witness unique architecture representing its culture, or be lost in the jungles to catch sight of Red Colobus Monkeys, one of the rarest primates in Africa. There isn’t a single moment to lose!

Tour Highlights

  • Eat some of East Africa’s best street food at the Forodhani Gardens after sunset
  • Get lost in the winding streets of Stone Town, Zanzibar’s cultural and historic centre
  • Explore the coral reefs of the Indian Ocean
  • Take a trip to Prison Island (also called Changuu Island) to visit the giant tortoises
  • Tour a spice farm and indulge in the rich scents of everything from lemongrass to chilli

Travel Tips

  • While Zanzibar is the name of the country, it is also the name of one of the country’s smaller (uninhabited) islands. Chances are you will spend most of your time on Unguja, the biggest island in the Zanzibar archipelago.
  • Get ready to eat some of the spiciest food in the world! Popular as “the spice island”, Zanzibar was a spice plantation in the 18th century and continues to heavily flavour its dishes.
  • Think you know how to tell time? Think again. Zanzibar operates on Swahili time, which begins to be counted as the sun rises. This means that the 7:00 am you’re used to is in fact, 1:00am in Zanzibar (as the sun typically rises at 6:00am), and so on.
  • Speaking of time, those in Zanzibar like to take things pole pole - the Swahili term for slow. Relax, don’t rush, and do as the locals do.
  • Tea drinking is a way of life in Zanzibar. Be sure to try ginger chai (tangawizi), best if purchased from a roadside tea stand.
