Tanzania  – Zanzibar

The ultimate safari and beach trip

A bit of luxury on the quintessential safari-beach combination trip

This itinerary is a real treat! Ideal for couples, families or groups of friends; this really is suitable for everyone. It is a fantastic combination that works well for anyone looking to combine safari and beach - with a little added luxury.

This trip includes two of the most incredible untouched areas of protected wilderness in Tanzania which do not get nearly the same volume of tourist traffic as do the parks of northern Tanzania. Ruaha National Park is just teeming with wildlife and offers a true off-the-beaten-track nature experience.

The beach part of the trip continues to Zanzibar in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, Zanzibar stands as a jewel in East Africa's coastal crown, offering a harmonious blend of rich history, vibrant culture, and natural beauty. Known as the "Spice Island," Zanzibar tantalizes the senses with its aromatic spice plantations, where cloves, vanilla, and nutmeg thrive in the fertile soil. The UNESCO World Heritage site of Stone Town, with its narrow winding streets and historic architecture, transports visitors to a bygone era, showcasing the island's cultural diversity. Beyond the captivating history, Zanzibar's pristine beaches beckon travellers to unwind in paradise, their powdery sands meeting the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Whether exploring the vibrant markets, savouring the local cuisine, or simply enjoying the serenity of the coastal landscape, Zanzibar promises an enchanting and idyllic escape for those seeking a perfect blend of relaxation and adventure.

The itinerary…

1: Outbound travel

Time to take your overnight flight, to Dar El Salaam.

2: Ruaha National Park

Tanzania 2


On arrival in to Dar El Salaam, you will transfer to the domestic terminal for your flight to the Ruaha National Park. The flight is just under 3 hours and it beautifully scenic as you fly into the depths of Tanzania. As you touch down at the Jongomero private air strip you will be you will be greeted by your guide and driven to camp in time for a traditional safari lunch.

Your home for the next four nights is Ikuka Safari Lodge where you will check into one of the six luxury tents. This secluded and very well-equipped camp provides the perfect base in between game drives, relax in the lounge or by the pool – but watch out for the thirsty elephants!

Once you have settled in and explored camp, you will set out of your first game drive in the Ruaha before returning to camp for a private dinner and a comfy night’s sleep, dozing off listening to the sounds of the bush.

3-5: Safari Days in Ruaha

Tanzania 3

Tanzania safari

Each evening you will discuss the next day’s activities with the camp managers, making plans for walking or driving safaris and deciding when and where to have lunch.

The Ruaha National Park is often overlooked by many safari goers which means that it is certainly one of the quieter parks to visit. It boasts a very impressive big cat population as well as vast herds of elephants and big packs of wild dogs. The Ruaha is also a great destination for birders, with over 500 species of bird already on record here. There are very few places in Tanzania that offer this exclusive and rewarding experience.

After each day’s activities, retire to camp to relax and indulge in the delicious food and drink available.

6 - 11: Zanzibar Queen

Zanzibar sunset


Today it’s time to move on to your second, very different location, Zanzibar! After breakfast you will return to the airstrip for a short flight to Zanzibar. You will be greeted at the airport and taken to Zanzibar Queen, which will be your home for the next six nights. The beachfront location on Matemwe (one of the best coral beaches around) is a massive draw for the Zanzibar Queen Hotel, as well as its close proximity to Mnemba which attracts amateur and professional divers.

12: Zanzibar Palace Hotel
