THE
DESTINATION

 

TANZANIA

 

Tanzania is home to many of the best and biggest parks in Africa, and some of the most varied and unique landscapes that you'll ever see. Home to the Great Wildebeast Migration, each year, Tanzania sees millions of animals make their way across the land in search of water and fresh pasture. Tanzania is a culturally eclectic and largely homogeneous society that is extremely rich in age-old cultures and traditions. The local population is well known for being friendly and polite to visitors, and there is a strong sense of national pride that reverberates throughout the country.

Welcome to Tanzania! We arrive at the Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR).

DAY 2.

 

 

We're up bright and early for a day trip to Safari Mikumi. We have to be up early to catch the sun light up the horizon and highlight the stunning wildlife of Dar es Salaam. 

 

At 05:00 am you will be picked up and transferred to Mikumi National Park, breakfast at Mikumi, and then we start game drive lunch inside the park. A game drive is the highlight of most African safaris. They allow you to get unparalleled views of African wildlife by bringing you deep into untamed areas that would be difficult to explore by foot. Later we go to Masai boma for a village tour. 

 

Then we will return back to our hotel for dinner.

DAY 3.

 

 

Today we’re heading to Zanzibar. We will be picked up be our private tour guide and transported to our hotel. You'll be able to relax and get settled in.

Grand rising! After breakfast, we will go on a guided tour of Prison Island where we will see huge giant tortoises and feed them lunch! After that we will do some snorkeling and explore the seafloor to spot exotic sea life. We will then be guided on Stone town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Experience tracing the footsteps of Arab Sultans in Zanzibar and ponder on the interesting historical sites and labyrinths. We will be able to see actual Zanzibar doors famous for its unique architectural tradition. In the past, the door was traditionally the first part of the house to be built and signifies the status of the owner; the wealthier and more respected the owner of the house is, the larger and meticulously carved the door front would be. After lunch, we will proceed to a tour of the countryside to the spice plantations.  The countryside has a rich history and we will be welcomed by the rich aroma of spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon.

DAY 5.

 

After breakfast, we will be taken to the North West Side at Matemwe village where we will see the beautiful crystal water Zanzibar is known for, swimming with dolphins, snorkeling and relaxing on the Sandbank. We will eat a beautiful Swahili lunch with various selections of seafood then head back to our accommodations where the rest of the night will be at leisure.

DAY 6.

 

We will visit Nungwi Aquarium. It's a famous lagoon where you will be able to swim with sea turtles and also feed them their meal for the day. It is popular for it's scenery and activities. Kendwa Beach is the perfect place to relax and to feel the sea breeze, swim, and enjoy Zanzibar. After relaxing at Kendwa Beach, we will take a sunset cruise and enjoy an open bar where you will be able to vibe and live it up with your fellow travel fam. After the sunset cruise, the night will be at your leisure.

DAY 7.

 

This will be a leisure day. Do whatever makes you happy. We would also recommend you use this time together with souvenirs, reflect on your experience and have one final night bonding with your newly found travel family over a luxury dinner at The Rock restaurant.

DAY 8.

 

We’re all sad, but unfortunately this amazing experience must come to an end. We’ve literally become a travel family during this experience and although it may be bittersweet, we know we will see each other again!
