With a Kenyan father, Indian grandparents, and a Portuguese surname, travel is in my blood. I am enthralled by East Africa and would happily talk about Africa’s wildlife, cultures and experiences all day, every day.

For those looking to combine the highlights of Tanzania into a compact itinerary, this is a great option. You’ll start your trip on the idyllic island of Zanzibar, enjoying five nights in the Z Hotel in the town of Nungwi. The hotel sits slightly back from the white-sand beaches and offers a range of facilities like a swimming pool and a rooftop restaurant. After your time relaxing in Zanzibar, you’ll fly to the Manyara airstrip to start your safari. You’ll spend two nights in the Ngorongoro Highlands where you will get the chance to game drive in both Lake Manyara National Park and descend down into the Ngorongoro Crater. You’ll then make your way to the Serengeti National Park to spend three nights on safari, with the opportunity to see the Great Migration. Depending on the time of year, you will either fly to the northern plains of the Serengeti (June to October) or head down to the Ndutu plans in the south (December to March) to witness the calving season. On the final day, you will fly from the Serengeti airstrip to Kilimanjaro, where you will connect to your international flights home.

Day by Day Itinerary
Days 1-5 Z Hotel, Zanzibar
You will be met at Zanzibar international airport where you will be transferred to the Z Hotel – your home for the next five nights. The island of Zanzibar offers something for everyone. For those who are looking to do some day trips from the beach, we would recommend a day trip to Stone Town. This is the capital of Zanzibar and is regarded as a UNESCO world heritage site. The town is filled with history and culture so we would definitely recommend a guided tour through the alleyways of Stone Town to soak in the atmosphere. For those who are keen on watersports, there are lots of opportunities to enjoy the waters of Zanzibar. You can do snorkeling, diving, kite surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, dhow sunset trips, and many more. Zanzibar is famous for its spices and as a result, is often referred to as ‘spice island’. You can visit one of the spice farms and get a private tour – smelling, seeing, and tasting the spices, fruits, and vegetables grown. We can help organize any of these excursions, or you can book them through the Z Hotel.
Days 6-7 Plantation Lodge, Ngorongoro Crater
After your time spent on the beautiful island of Zanzibar, you will fly across to Manyara airstrip where you will be met on arrival by your safari guide. It is now time to head to another of Tanzania’s most iconic destinations – the Ngorongoro Crater. Located in the Ngorongoro highlands, you will spend the next two nights at Plantation Lodge. Beautiful well-kept gardens and coffee plantation hills surround the lodge, so you will instantly feel at one with nature. Relax at Plantation Lodge, ready for another day of excitement tomorrow. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the Wonders of the World, and rightly so! As the largest inactive caldera in the world, the Ngorongoro Crater attracts thousands of visitors each year to witness the views from the top, and experience the famous game drive down the crater rim. As you leave Plantation Lodge in the morning, make sure you wear lots of layers as temperatures are much cooler at the top of the crater. As you descend down into the crater, you will start to feel warmer and the safari begins. Enjoy the unique ecosystem and the abundance of wildlife on your day-long game drive.
Days 8-10 Kichakani Migration Camp, Serengeti National Park
After breakfast and a morning coffee, you will begin your drive to the Serengeti National Park. Once you enter the boundaries of the Serengeti, you will continue to drive to the southern plains of the Serengeti (between November and March). This is where the luxury tented camp is located and your home for the next three nights – Kichakani Camp. This is a mobile tented camp offering luxury accommodation and excellent guiding. For the next three nights, you will enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in one of the greatest national parks in all of Africa. Out on your game drive, you will drive through a variety of landscapes, with the opportunity to see elephant, hippo, crocodile, giraffe, zebra, and antelope to name a few. As most cats are territorial, your guide will know the best locations for big such as lion prides, cheetah, and leopard. Note that if you are doing this itinerary between June and October, you will fly from the Ngorongoro Crater to the northern plains of the Serengeti – which is where the migration herds will be at this time of the year.
Day 11 Depart
You will fly back to Kilimanjaro airport to connect onto international flights home.
