Description of Tanzania safari and Zanzibar beach holiday, tailor made

Just the thought of a Tanzania safari and beach holiday in Zanzibar is enough to get you packing your binocs and flip-flops which is why this awesome two week break in southern Africa is well-worth getting all excited about.

Get things started on a five day safari in Tanzania where you'll explore the country's northern safari park circuit including limitless wildlife drives in Lake Manyara National Park and across the Serengeti.

Ably accompanied by your private local guide this Tanzania safari is the perfect way to find out more about the environment and wildlife of East Africa. A spectacular visit to the infamous Ngorongoro Crater is just one of several magnificent highlights to experience on this Tanzania safari holiday.

Any Tanzania safari and beach holiday has to include Zanzibar and as you bid the national parks farewell you'll be whisked off to the white sand beaches and glass clear shallows of Zanzibar to rest, revive and relive those incredible safari scenes from the comfort of a gently swaying hammock.

Responsible tourism: Tanzania safari and Zanzibar beach holiday, tailor made

Environment

Our local safari guides all have at least 5 years safari guiding experience and are experts at finding game while causing a minimum of disruption to the wildlife. Furthermore our continuous approach to training ensures that best practices are always continuing to evolve.

The carbon emissions created in Tanzania by this holiday are all offset Africa through our partnership with a local environmental charity. These offsets are paid for out of our company profits so that you can travel with a green conscience and at no extra cost to you.

Many travel companies offer their customers the chance to offset the carbon emissions from their international flights too but we have gone a step further and offer to share this cost with you 50/50. If you select to compensate for your international flight emissions when you book with us then what you put in, we put in too!

To ensure that we are offering ground-breaking itineraries and are always keeping up-to-date with the latest developments abroad, our UK staff travel regularly to our destinations. This ‘work’ also leaves a carbon footprint and we compensate for all our staff travel by donating carbon-mitigating funds to our charity partners.

Our UK office takes a leading role in setting the standards for an environmentally friendly work environment. We work with local government to recycle our waste and continually look for new ways to be greener.

Community

Our cultural tourism initiatives, such as the Maasai village visit, are diligently structured so that they mutually benefit the community and the curious traveller. We encourage you to be proactive and respectful when engaging in such activities. We also remind you to always ask permission before taking photographs.

We employ local guides and support staff who we pay fair wages, often exceeding government standards which we still consider too low, and thereby remove the reliance on tipping from travellers for livelihoods.

Our accommodation choices make use of locally owned properties where possible and often include adventurous, authentic choices such as local homestays which therefore involve local people and their communities in the very fabric of our holidays.

We encourage all our travellers to research local customs and read your trip notes before you depart to ensure you are conscientious and respectful in a different culture.

In most cases we strongly recommend that you do not give money to children beggars. If begging is a successful enterprise, parents are encouraged to forsake their children’s education in pursuit of this opportunity.

Talk to us about packing for a purpose and see if you can get involved by making a small material contribution to the communities you are visiting. We have developed partnerships with charities and accommodations throughout Tanzania and are constantly working to extend our reach with the help of our travellers.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


There were so many highlights, but I have to say that our Balloon Safari over the Serengeti was just magical

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Good binoculars will make all the difference, and you'll also want a good zoom lens on your camera to capture the memories.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I feel that the holiday definitely supported conservation and benefited local people, and our guides emphasised the wise old maxim that we should make sure that nothing was taken except photographs, and nothing left behind except our footprints.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Fantastic - I know that my whole family will have amazing lifelong memories of a shared magical experience, what more can anyone ask of a holiday?

All of the safari part and swimming with rescued turtles on Zanzibar.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Don't go to the Western Serengeti if it is not the 'migration' season. From what we heard out there, probably go in February- March for best safari sights.

Yes - definitely supported conservation. Yes benefitted local people. I am not sure re environmental impact.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent!
