Explore Tanzania’s rightly famous Northern parks in an action-packed adventure before heading to tropical Zanzibar for some well-earned relaxation.
This itinerary takes you to three spectacular wildlife areas in the north of Tanzania in a combination of game drives and walking safaris. Begin in Tarangire and experience the thrill of walking alongside big game before making your way to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area to explore the breathtaking crater highlands region. In the Serengeti, watch as thousands of wildebeest fill the plains in the Great Migration and round off your safari on the white sands of tropical Zanzibar Island.
Just outside Arusha on the drive from Kilimanjaro Airport is Onsea House. Owner-managed and run, the house has an intimate and friendly feel. Add to this the superb staff and a reputation for culinary excellence and Onsea House is a wonderful place to spend your first night in Tanzania.
