Highlights include

Zanzibar Island

Experiencing the exotic African and Arabic mix of Zanzibar Island 

Known as Spice Island, the exotic natural beauty and culture of  Zanzibar Island is extraordinarily fascinating.  From the Moroccan-style Stone Town, the exquisite aqua green, snowy white s beaches of the northern region and the abundance of spice farms on the island, this is actually quite often described as paradise on earth.

sharing a meal on Safari

Enjoying the company of local village people and sharing a meal 

The tribes that inhabit the inland regions of Tanzania are some of the friendliest in East Africa.  We spend some time in local villages where you have a wonderful experience of getting off the beaten track and learning of their traditions – their culture, how they live, how they cook their foods and sampling the delicious traditional dishes.

Mt Kilimanjaro

Walking the fertile slopes at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro

Here we enjoy strolling and interacting with the local Chagga people who inhabit the lush green fertile low slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro.  If it’s hot enough, perhaps taking in a refreshing dip in the nearby waterfalls, while stopping to admire the view of the majestic snow-capped Mt Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak.

game drives East Africa

Safaris and plenty of game drives in search of the “BIG 5”, and other amazing wildlife 

On this tour we experience the ultimate in game driving – through the beautiful World Heritage Site of Serengeti National Park, as well as the interesting Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania in search of the “BIG 5” … elephant, rhino, leopard, lion, buffalo, plus many many other wildlife and exotic birdlife.

sun setting over Africa

Witnessing the sun setting over Africa 

Africa has some of the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets on the planet and one of the most perfect spots you can be to witness this beautiful experience is on Zanzibar Island.   Here you get to treat yourselves by sitting back sipping sundowner cocktails and watching the sun go down over the horizon.
