10 Days Serengeti Safari and Zanzibar beach special offer
10 Days Serengeti Safari and Zanzibar beach special offer is a definite way to visit Tanzania and make the most of your limited time, and our package is a well-balanced program to accomplish so. This package includes arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport and departure from Zanzibar Airport, but we can also assist you in arranging any domestic flight connections that you may require in case you cannot get a flight to Kilimanjaro (JRO) or out of Zanzibar, necessitating flights into or out of Dar es Salaam, for example.
Our 10 Days Serengeti Safari and Zanzibar beach begins with a room reservation near Arusha, followed by 5 days on safari with 4 nights spent at safari lodges and the ‘out of Africa style safari’ tented camps. If you do not want to stay in the safari tented camps, we can simply alter the itinerary to include safari lodges. There is always space for improvement in the program. The tour takes you to the Serengeti National Park, Africa’s premier animal destination, as well as Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and finally to the Island of Zanzibar for beach leisure.
The Serengeti National Park, which is a major attraction of this safari and Zanzibar beach package, is expected to be teeming with wildlife. According to several polls, the Serengeti National Park is the most famous park not only in Tanzania, but also in Africa. Apart from the Serengeti and Zanzibar beach, you will also visit Tarangire National Park, a wildlife hotspot that is sometimes neglected. The park is well-known for its vast elephant populations and massive, often century-old baobab trees. You will also have the opportunity to see the Ngorongoro Crater, often known as the “Garden of Eden.” As a result, there is plenty of wildlife viewing in this 10-day package. As a result, there is plenty of wildlife viewing in this 10-day itinerary that mixes wildlife safari adventure with beach leisure on the spice island.
The greatest time to visit the Serengeti and Zanzibar is between June and September, as well as January and February.

Day 1: Arrival via Kilimanjaro International Airport
This first day of your Tanzania vacation begins with your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, where our Safari Manager will meet you and drive you in a private car to your lodge in the Arusha area, with a pre-safari briefing en route and upon arrival. Any unpaid payments will be collected as well. Mount Meru Game Lodge provides dinner and overnight accommodations. Dinner is provided.
Day 2. Transfer to Tarangire National Park
Your safari begins with a two-hour drive to Tarangire National Park, which is known for its vast herds of elephants and massive baobab trees. After a brief registration at the gate, you will immediately begin on your first game drive in search of big game, spending the entire day in the bush with a picnic lunch taken at one of the picnic spots. Tarangire is a highlight of any Tanzania safari, with many opportunities to see elephants, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, impalas, gazelles, the rare gerenuks, and with luck, cats such as cheetahs, leopards, and lions, as well as the rare fringe-eared oryx. Tarangire National Park is also well-known for its birds, which include uncommon species such as Ashy starlings and others. You will be driven to Karatu in the Ngorongoro Highlands later in the afternoon for supper and overnight at Marera Valley Lodge. All meals are provided.
Day 3. Explore the Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast at the camp, we headed off towards Ngorongoro Conservation Area, passing through the Great Rift Valley and enjoying the views along the way. After a brief stop at the Loduare Main Gate to register for admission to the Conservation area, you will be taken to the Crater Rim for another quick stop to capture breathtaking views of the Crater bottom and take photographs. We will next descend into the Crater floor for the rest of the day, arriving at the resort in the late afternoon about 6 p.m. Ngorongoro Crater, often known as the Eden of Africa, is the only area in Africa where you may see all five of the Big Five in a single day with very little chance. It’s astonishing how many animals you can view at close range in a single day of game drives on the Crater floor despite the fact that it’s only approximately 21 kilometers across the world’s largest unbroken caldera. Elephants, lions, zebras, hyenas, jackals, rhinos, leopards, cheetahs, you name it. Picnic lunch will be served in the Crater, and keep an eye out for kites that can steal your food or fingers. Stay the night at Marera Valley Lodge. All meals are provided.

You will wake up early in the morning for breakfast before continuing on to Serengeti National Park, the land of the big predators and the famous Great Wildebeest Migration.

The game drives will continue until late afternoon, when you will check into Thorntree Camp or Serengeti Tortilis Camp. All meals are provided.
Day 5: Whole day wildlife sightings in Serengeti National Park
This day, an early morning game drive is a fantastic option for spotting nocturnal and diurnal species as they awaken for the day. Many animals will be easily visible by the track sides in the morning as they escape the morning dew and enjoy the songs of the rising birds. Depending on when you visit the Serengeti, you might be lucky enough to watch the Great Wildebeest Migration (ask our experts for their location). Even without the wildebeest migration herds, the Serengeti is home to thousands of resident creatures including as buffaloes, leopards, cheetahs, lions, elephants, topis, Thompson’s and Grant’s gazelles, impalas, warthogs, and numerous bird species.
