Day 1 : Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to Zanzibar

Combine the best of both worlds - safari adventure and paradise with this all-in-one! Our Africa adventure starts in Dar es Salaam, where we ferry across to the magical 'Spice Island' of Zanzibar to spend three blissful nights. Discover the island&rsquo;s idyllic, palm-fringed beaches, winding cobbled alleys and lush tropical forests, as well as its intriguing history as a major trading centre for spices. For centuries, Zanzibaris would trade with the people of the Arabian Peninsula and ply the ocean in simple dhow sailboats, relying on the annual trade winds for passage. The Arab influence is evident in the architecture and diverse street stall offerings of the capital, Stone Town, so keep your eyes peeled when wandering the city&rsquo;s historic pathways. The next four days are on your own watch, so spend your time exploring at your own pace.<br /> <br /> <br /> Please note: As we leave the truck on the mainland, basic safari lodge/hotel accommodation and breakfast on Zanzibar is included. However, lunches and dinners are your own to arrange. We usually divide our nights here between accommodation in Stone Town and accommodation on one of the northern beaches, but there are no set activities &ndash; the time is entirely yours to do as you please.<br /> <br /> Included today: <br /> -Ferry to Zanzibar<br /> <br /> Optional activities:<br /> -Spice tour<br /> -Visit the old slave market site<br /> -Arabic Fort<br /> -Palace Museum

Day 2 : Zanzibar

Variety is the spice of life, and on Zanzibar island, spices are abundant. Embark on a day tour to the nearby spice plantations and have your senses dazzled by the tastes and scents that infiltrate the air.<br /> <br /> Meals: <br /> -Breakfast<br /> <br /> Optional activities:<br /> -Spice tour<br /> -Scuba diving<br /> -Mnemba Island<br /> -Dhow snorkelling safari<br /> -Massage

Day 3 : Zanzibar

Don your comfiest walking attire and set out to explore Stone Town on foot. Get lost in the labyrinth of laneways at the bazaars, and marvel at the array of ancient maritime trinkets, vibrant fabrics and ornate wooden carvings. Be sure to pay a visit to the city&rsquo;s mosques, palaces, courtyards and alleyways for a living history lesson of this fascinating island.<br /> <br /> Meals: <br /> -Breakfast

Day 4 : Zanzibar

Awake to another day in this dreamlike haven. If it's white sand, a sparkling ocean and hot sun you're after, we will take you to the northern beaches and enjoy the Indian Ocean at its best. Try your hand at snorkelling and diving, indulge in some sumptuous seafood, or simply relax beneath a coconut palm with a cocktail and a good book.<br /> <br /> Meals: <br /> -Breakfast<br /> <br /> Optional activities:<br /> -Spice tour<br /> -Scuba diving<br /> -Mnemba Island<br /> -Dhow snorkelling safari<br /> -Massage

Day 5 : Zanzibar to Dar es Salaam

Time to farewell this picture-perfect paradise. Sneak in some last-minute shopping or relish one last dip, before catching the ferry back to Dar on the African mainland. Tonight, our campsite on the coast awaits.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> -Ferry to Dar Es Salaam<br /> <br /> Meals: <br /> -Breakfast<br /> -Dinner

Day 6 : Dar es Salaam to Marangu

Departing early from Dar es Salaam, we head north past the Usambara and Pare Mountains in the Eastern Arc Mountain Range to Marangu, nestled at the base of the famed Kilimanjaro. The camp takes its name from the surrounding area; &quot;Marangu&quot; means &quot;full of water&quot; in the local Chagga language, and the lush green surroundings demonstrate the truth of this. If the weather is clear we will gain a view of the magnificent snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa&rsquo;s highest mountain.<br /> <br /> Meals: <br /> -Breakfast<br /> -Lunch<br /> -Dinner

Day 7 : Marangu to Arusha

Fingers crossed for clear weather today, as we might be treated to a view of the magnificent snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain. Cameras at the ready! Passing through the town of Moshi, we eventually reach Arusha, a bustling melting pot of markets, vehicles and some two million people, all nestled in the shadow of the brooding Mt Meru. With time to explore town, we head out to our camp just outside the city at the edge of the Masai plains.<br /> <br /> This afternoon, we head out on a walk to one of the local Masai villages &ndash; inspecting a local school and clinic, a small but hugely interesting Masai museum, and the snake enclosure at the Meserani Snake Park (if you dare!). It&rsquo;s from here that we will prepare for our included two-night/three-day excursion to the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater. Time to catch some important zzz&rsquo;s.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> -Maasai Village walk<br /> <br /> Meals: <br /> -Breakfast<br /> -Lunch<br /> -Dinner<br /> <br /> Optional activities:<br /> -Camel ride

Day 8 : Arusha to Serengeti Naitonal Park & Ngorongoro Crater

This morning calls for a vehicle change-up. We hit the road in a more game park-friendly option and drive west across the Great Rift Valley, passing through Mto Wa Mbo (&lsquo;mosquito creek&rsquo;) and enter the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. Just try not to drop your jaw as we pass into the park and cruise around the crater rim and down onto the Serengeti plains (we bet you can&rsquo;t). We drive to our designated (but unfenced) campsite for the evening where lion and hyena roam nearby for an unforgettable experience.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> -Serengeti National Park &amp; Ngorongoro Crater excursion<br /> <br /> Meals: <br /> -Breakfast<br /> -Lunch<br /> -Dinner

Day 9 : Serengeti National Park & Ngorongoro Crater

Spend the morning game-driving out of the plains, and then ascend the outer wall of the Ngorongoro Crater (after a well-deserved lunch, of course). Pack your warmest jacket, as tonight we camp on the rim of the crater where wildlife also gallivant. At 326 square kilometres in area, the Ngorongoro Crater is Africa&rsquo;s largest intact caldera and a World Heritage Site. If the view from the rim at 2,400 metres above sea level is spectacular, the site from the crater floor some 600 metres below, will be equally mind-blowing.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> -Serengeti National Park &amp; Ngorongoro Crater excursion<br /> <br /> Meals: <br /> -Breakfast<br /> -Lunch<br /> -Dinner<br /> <br /> Optional activities:<br /> -Serengeti balloon flight

Day 10 : Serengeti National Park & Ngorongoro Crater

On the final day of the excursion we descend down the steep, dirt road of the Ngorongoro Crater for a morning of game driving. Keep your eye out for all the major mammals &ndash; except the towering giraffes, which struggle to manage the steep slopes leading down onto the crater floor. After our game drive, we ascend to our campsite on the rim for a final view over the Ngorongoro Crater, and then pack up our camp and enjoy lunch before retracing our steps to our campsite in Arusha.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> -Serengeti National Park &amp; Ngorongoro Crater excursion<br /> <br /> Meals: <br /> -Breakfast<br /> -Lunch<br /> -Dinner

Day 11 : Serengeti National Park & Ngorongoro Crater to Nairobi, Kenya

After a last night at camp, we make our way across the Maasai Steppe to the Kenyan frontier. Completing formalities at Namanga border post, we drive the last stretch of road to Nairobi, Kenya&rsquo;s capital, where our amazing tour of Africa sadly ends. Until next time!<br /> <br /> Meals: <br /> -Breakfast<br /> -Lunch
