Tanzania Safari from Zanzibar


Our 4 days Tanzania Safari from Zanzibar package is the best program you can ever take if you have the available time to do a 4 days tour from Zanzibar Island.

This package includes two most prominent wildlife areas in Tanzania; the Serengeti National Park of the wildebeests' migration and big cats fame and the Ngorongoro Crater known for its high concentration of wild animals in the very small area of around 21 Kilometers diameter but still an area where you can spot all the Big 5.

The distance between Zanzibar and the Serengeti National Park is a long way and therefore the only way you can do this tour is by air. We however arrange that flight for you so we try to make it as hassle-free for you as possible. The safari ends at Arusha with a flight back from Arusha to Zanzibar. If however, you want to finish the tour in Arusha, if you are to depart from Kilimanjaro International Airport for example back home, we can deduct that flight cost and drop you back at Arusha Kilimanjaro Airport. Just ask our bale safari experts for that adjustment.

This small beautiful gem of a park with its lush vegetation and tropical forests of giant fig trees and mahogany trees, takes its name from the Maasai word for “euphorbia tirucalli”, a wild bush which is used to make a thorny hedge to protect their cattle locally known as a boma. This small gem of a national park hosts herds of Elephants, buffalo, Masai giraffes, zebras and a variety of antelopes that inhabit the park not forgetting a variety of monkey species and a large population of hippos that roam around the lake and occupy the lake itself. On a luck day, you may see also spot the legendary tree-climbing lions of Lake Manyara National Park which are well known for their tree-climbing habits, lazily resting on the branches of an “Acacia tortilis” trees.
