Overview

Active, safari-focused itineraries through East Africa can still make space for some downtime, as this 13-day tour demonstrates. After canoeing through beautiful lakes, hiking through craters, and spotting wildlife in Serengeti National Park, you'll fly to the idyllic island of Zanzibar for some well-earned time on its sandy beaches. Or dive underwater to explore colourful coral reefs with a snorkelling session. It's the perfect balance of activities to satiate your adventurous spirit and recharge your batteries too.

En route marvel at the sheer vastness of this territory, and spot the multitude of animal and birdlife while cruising through this acacia-accented savanna.

Opt for a balloon safari in the morning, or continue on with another wildlife safari drive. The rest of the day will be spent in the Serengeti, finishing the day with sunset on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater.

After, journey to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, famous for Africa's best wildlife viewing. The vistas from the Ngorongoro Crater rim are stunning, and there is an ever-present abundance of animals, due to the permanent water supply on the crater floor. Arrive at the campsite on the crater rim in the evening.

Head out early for a wildlife safari drive in the Ngorongoro Crater, then enjoy an afternoon biking in Lake Manyara NP - home to the famous tree climbing lions.

What to Take

You will be on the move a lot, so our advice is to pack as lightly as possible. Your baggage should be clearly labelled and restricted to one soft compact suitcase, sports bag, or backpack, no larger than 30cm(height) x 30cm(width) x 60cm(length), maximum 15kg, plus a daypack. Luggage limits on airlines are strictly enforced, and due to limited vehicle capacity, the cost of transporting any luggage beyond these restrictions is the responsibility of the client. Please note, if you are travelling with a large amount of luggage and wish to leave a portion of it at the start hotel, this is indeed possible as storage facilities are available. For our camping style tours you will need to provide your own sleeping bag, small pillow and sleeping sheet (if you would like). We provide the tent and the sleeping pads. It is important to pack clothes for warm days and cool evenings, as well as a warm jacket for early morning wildlife safari drives. Light, quick-drying, practical clothes are advisable for this safari trip.
