Where Next

Easy logistics connect East Africa

Make Tanzania just part of your African experience. Easy logistics connect East Africa’s biggest and best safari destinations so you can explore Kenya’s Masai Mara or go gorilla trekking in Uganda or Rwanda in combination with the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.

Kenya

If the timing of your Tanzania safari means missing the migration, then simply pop across the border to Kenya’s Masai Mara. The wildebeest herds are there from August to November – and you’ll have excellent crowd-free game viewing in the Serengeti as well!

Uganda & Rwanda

Combining the Serengeti migration with gorilla trekking makes an unforgettable wildlife experience. Rwanda offers the easiest in-and-out gorilla treks but Uganda is where you can add chimp tracking, big game viewing and river cruises onto your itinerary.

Zanzibar, Beaches & Islands

The most fitting finale to your bush and safari holiday is a beach holiday. Enjoy a luxurious Indian Ocean beach holiday & excellent diving at a mainland resort or exotic Zanzibar. It gets even more exclusive on Pemba, Mafia & Mnemba islands.
