Tanzania tour with Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar
Description of Tanzania tour with Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar
Combine a beach break and a trekking holiday, plus multiple memorable safari experiences, into one amazing Tanzania tour.
This trip starts by giving you a taste of hiking on Kilimanjaro on a day trek. The Marangu Route of Kilimanjaro is the most popular route up the mountain. Whilst the full ascent of Kilimanjaro takes at least five days, in one day you can have a taster of the trail, trekking from Marangu village on the southeastern side of the mountain to the Mandara Huts – huts where trekkers going all the way up would sleep for the night. Your day trek is a steady and gentle climb up through rainforest, climbing from 1,970m to an altitude of 2,700m. The full trek takes around six or seven hours, there and back.
Once you’ve completed your hike, you’re going on safari. Your local drive and guide are wildlife-spotting experts and know exactly where to go to give you the best experiences. You’ll explore no fewer than five national parks: Arusha, with its timid birdlife and bushbucks; Tarangire, where elephants roam in enormous herds; Lake Manyara with its tree climbing lions; the fabulous Serengeti and the wildlife-rich Ngorongoro Crater. If you’re not done with walking, you could choose to go on walking safari in some locations instead.
Zanzibar is a wonderful place to have a beach break after a safari adventure. Swap the rumbling road drives for smooth sandy beaches – and there’s plenty of snorkelling if you’re not ready to hang up your spotter’s guide just yet.
This local company – run by a husband-and-wife team and staffed by expert guides – can tailor your trip so you have the best chance of seeing the animals you’ve dreamed of seeing – but there are always wonderful surprises in store in the savannah.

Do the walking safaris!! the Kilimanjaro hike is a must!!
