2 Days Tanzania Safari Tour
After breakfast we descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a morning, half-day game drive. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is the dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will enjoy a picnic lunch in the crater, after which we travel back to Moshi where we will end our African safari adventure. You will be taken to your hotel, which ends our safari packages services.
The departure dates for all our African safaris and trekking packages are totally flexible according to your own personal needs. Please contact us for further and more detailed info, as well as information on photographic safaris and Kilimanjaro trekking packages.

The Islands of Zanzibar(also called Unguja) and Pemba and surrounding islets that together form Zanzibar are certainly one of the most attractive and restful locations in the world. With its Indian, Arab, Persian and Portuguese influences, Zanzibar is a cocktail of culture, people, tradition and color.
The Islands of Zanzibar(also called Unguja) and Pemba and surrounding islets that together form Zanzibar are certainly one of the most attractive and restful locations in the world. With its Indian, Arab, Persian and Portuguese influences, Zanzibar is a cocktail of culture, people, tradition and color. Combine this with its natural beauty, tropical climate and laid back atmosphere, Zanzibar is, in our opinion, one of the best ways to begin or end your Tanzanian safari experience.It is located in the Indian Ocean, about 25 miles from the Tanzanian coast, and 6 south of the equator.
The capital of the islands, located on the island of Unguja, is also known as Zanzibar. It is 60 miles long and 20 miles wide, occupying a total area of approximately 650 square miles.The coastal areas with white beaches, mangroves, lagoons and coral reefs compliment the richly fertile areas inland where the spice farms are situated. Zanzibar (Unguja), is also home to the historic Stone Town – said to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa. Time spent experiencing the different aspects of Zanzibar is highly recommended.
Zanzibar Beaches & Activities
Zanzibar’s(Unguja), brilliant white beaches bathed in the warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean are what visions of paradise are made of. Here one is provided with the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun. The warm clear waters fringed with coral reefs provide some excellent sites for snorkelling, scuba diving and other water sports.There are more than 25 excellent beaches in Zanzibar many of these are remote and unspoilt but easily accessed. At the northern tip of the island is Nungwi, which is worth the hour or so it takes to get you there. Here you can swim at low tide without having to wade out a mile into the sea (rare in Zanzibar).
On the west coast of Zanzibar, is Mangapwani, and to the east are the beaches of Matemwe, Pwani Mchangani, Kiwengwa, Uroa, Bwejuu and Jambiani.Zanzibar (Unguja), is also an ideal base from which to explore the many small offshore islands, perfect for day-trips. Prison island is the most popular with tourists because it is only a short trip from Stone Town. Other islets near to Stone Town are Chapwani, Chumbe and Bawe.
Hiking is the preferred term, in Canada and the United States, for a long, vigorous walk, usually on trails (footpaths), in the countryside, while the word walking is used for shorter, particularly urban walks. On the other hand, in the United Kingdom, and the Republic of Ireland, the word “walking” is acceptable to describe all forms of walking, whether it is a walk in the park or backpacking in the Alps.
The word hiking is also often used in the UK, along with rambling (a slightly old-fashioned term), hillwalking, and fell walking (a term mostly used for hillwalking in northern England). The term bushwalking is endemic to Australia, having been adopted by the Sydney Bush Walkers club in 1927. In New Zealand a long, vigorous walk or hike is called tramping. It is a popular activity with numerous hiking organizations worldwide, and studies suggest that all forms of walking have health benefits.
Our Local Day Trips
Chagga Tribe Culture Tour
A tour through a Chagga village will take you through a coffee plantation and banana beer making, both of which are made entirely by hand. You may also visit a blacksmith to see how tools are built using traditional methods and take a look at Chagga houses. A walk through the village must not go without stepping inside a cave, which were made during the time of tribal wars with the Maasai and used by the Chagga people and their livestock for hiding.
Kikuletwa Hot springs gets its name from the water that bubbles in underground caves. Surrounded by fig trees, this area is a hidden gem in the midst of a semi arid landscape. Here you may find a diversity of colourful birds amongst an abundance of plant life and neighbouring indigenous tribes. There is also an option to camp overnight and hike.
The Kinukamori waterfall, part of Marangu village, offers another look at the Chagga culture. On top of the waterfall sits a statue of a woman. According to legend, a woman who became pregnant out of wedlock contemplated committing suicide only to change her mind and be driven to death over the waterfall from a leopard attack.
Only an hours drive from Moshi on the border between Tanzania and Kenya sits a wondrous crater lake. This volcanic area is perfect for camping, swimming and exploration. A camp ground with several camping sites is available and includes a bar, restaurant, hot showers and barbeque grills.
Ndoro waterfall is another area located in Marangu at the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Visiting this waterfall is a perfect day trip for hiking enthusiasts since it can only be reached by foot and takes about an hour to hike in. Upon arrival, you may enjoy a swim whilst being surrounded by lush temperate forest.
