Nyerere National Park

Day 1 - 4

After arriving at Dar Es Salaam international airport, you’ll be transferred to the domestic terminal and take a light-aircraft flight to Nyerere National Park for the first of your four nights in this picturesque park.

You’ll be on safari from the moment you arrive, as you’ll be collected from the airstrip by your guide and driven to your lodge. Your first game drive will bring to life the varied wildlife and landscapes of this incredible wilderness.

During the next four days, you’ll not only enjoy game drives throughout the park, you’ll also enjoy boat safaris on the waterways of Nyerere, observing hippos and crocodiles, and the game that come to the water’s edge. We also recommend taking a boat out in the afternoon and enjoying a spot of fishing with your guide before the sun sets.

The birdlife in this park is truly spectacular, and the calls of the African fish eagle drifting across the water are one of Africa’s most evocative sounds.

Zanzibar Islands

Day 5 - 9

On the morning of your fifth day, your guide will drive you to the airstrip and you’ll take your onward light aircraft flight to Zanzibar. Upon arrival, you’ll be met by your driver and taken in a private transfer to your hotel.

You’ll spend the next five nights enjoying all these beautiful islands have to offer. Zanzibar is a place of endless white-sand beaches and azure blue waters. This is the perfect location to unwind and relax after your family safari.

For the more energetic members of the family activities abound and you will be able to enjoy SCUBA diving, snorkelling, dolphin safaris, traditional dhow trips, deep sea fishing, and much more.

Zanzibar has a rich and diverse cultural history and a tour of the crumbling streets of Stone Town is a perfect way for your family to learn about the island’s past.

On the tenth day, you’ll be transferred back to Zanzibar international airport in a private vehicle for your onward journey home.
