If you love animals in the wild, Tanzania is a paradise for you!

We go on safari at several national parks: in Tarangire National Park, we are facing huge elephant herds and in Lake Manyara National Park we are looking for lions, who lie drowsy in the tree tops. One of the highlights of the trip is certainly the intense experience of the world-famous Serengeti with its endless expanse and the huge herds of animals: for several days we stay here - and because there is so much to see, we also switch between our location, the dream of Africa will come true! Another wildlife paradise can be found in the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater: the journey down into the crater is breathtaking and the bustle of animals on the ground of the caldera gives us the impression that we find here the densest animal population on the planet - the chances of finding big cats are high, so eyes open! Good visibility is guaranteed on this trip in all our game drives, because we are in all-wheel-drive with a top-up sun roof. After 10 days of unforgettable safaris, you can look forward to the most beautiful beaches in East Africa: We fly to the spice island of Zanzibar! Dream into the day, bathe or snorkel in the warm turquoise water, take endless beach walks or plunge into the hustle and bustle of the picturesque Stone Tone - over your time in this paradise you determine all alone!

Day 1  Departure from Germany
The experience "Tanzania with Zanzibar" begins with your flight via Addis Ababa to Kilimanjaro Airport. Use the Rail & Fly ticket, which allows you to travel easily from any German station of your choice to Frankfurt Airport, simply and environmentally friendly. The first night of your East Africa trip is spent relaxing over the clouds. Good flight!

Day 2  Arrival in Kilimanjaro - Arusha
Did you have a relaxed time on board? At noon you will reach Kilimanjaro Airport. With a WORLD INSIGHT sign and a smile, your guide will take you to the hotel in Arusha. The choice is yours: first, time to relax after the flight or go on a discovery tour? How about a stroll through the city or a visit to a coffee plantation (optional) and the Shanga Riverhouse - here you can relax in the picturesque garden and enjoy a first Kenyan coffee! If you are looking for a good restaurant for the evening, your guide will give you tips; 60 km – 1 overnight at African View Lodge***, Zawadi House*** or McElly's Hotel** in Arusha.

Day 3  Arusha - Tarangire Nationalpark
Today we want to see animals! We head into Tarangire National Park, which offers an unbelievably large variety of animals on an area of ​​Luxembourg. The months of June to October are the ideal time to encounter giant elephant herds searching for water veins. The national park has one of the largest elephant populations in Tanzania. But also much more delicate, feathered inhabitants feel at home here: About 550 bird species offer the green marshes of the reserve a real paradise. Nowhere else breed so many colorful species in one area. We reach the national park in the late morning and go straight on game drive. A great all-round view is guaranteed, even if we are traveling with the vehicle: the roof of our safari vehicle can be opened on all game drives - so we can all stand and look for animals! As soon as we are hungery, we look for a shady spot under an acacia tree and enjoy our first picnic in nature before we continue our game drive. Back in our beautiful camp, the time is still enough to take a dip in the pool before we watch sunset with a cool drink on the veranda; 260 km - 1 overnight at Sangaiwe Tented Lodge***, Isoitok Tented Camp*** or Maramboi Tented Camphttp://tanganyikawildernesscamps.com/camps/maramboitentedcamp/*** at Tarangire National Park (B/L/D).

Day 4  Tarangire National Park - Lake Manyara National Park - Karatu
Let yourself be carried away from the sunshine today, the alarm clock you can leave in the luggage. Our next destination is not far away, so a short drive takes us to Lake Manyara National Park, where a huge variety of flora and fauna await us in a small space. Even the world-famous writer Ernest Hemingway once praised this park as "the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in Africa". If you have seen many elephants yesterday, the chances are now high for the sighting of lions climbing on acacia trees. Your guide knows why in this park, this behavior of the big cats is to be observed. Flamingos are also found in Lake Manyara in the search for food. Depending on the season (in our winter months), the long-legged birds cover the lake with a pink feathered carpet - an incomparable sight! In late afternoon we drive the last 20 km before we reach our accommodation in Karatu and look forward to our dinner in a cozy round; 100 km - 1 overnight at Endoro Lodge***, Bougainvillea Safari Lodge*** or Country Lodge*
*(*) in Karatu (B/L/D).

Day Karatu - Serengeti National Park
The last two days have already been full of unforgettable natural experiences - don't you think? Wait! With a nice drive through the scenic volcanic landscape of the Ngorongoro Highlands, we drive to famous Serengeti National Park. The Park is rightly one of the most important protected areas on earth: 3 million mammals call Serengeti their home. Already on our trip to the camp we cross this special spot and we should already have our cameras ready! Our home for the next two nights: Beautiful tented camps in the middle of the wilderness; 280 km - 2 + 2 nights at Mbugani Ndutu Serengeti Tented Camp***, Serengeti Acacia Tented Camp***, Serengeti Kati Kati Tented Camp*** or Serengeti View Camp*** in Serengeti National Park (B/L/D).

Day 6-8  Serengeti National Park - three full days!
We are in the park for 3 whole days: the chances of seeing lions, buffaloes and other big animals are very high! With a little luck, we can also spot one of the leopards, who usually doze in the trees during the day. The birds of the savannah are usually rather plainly dressed. Only the colorful male weaver birds, who build their artful nests at the ends of branches, are truely colorful. When, how and where we have lunch today depends on us - either as lunch package in the shade of an acacia tree or in the camp! For sunset we are back, after many great animal observations, in the luggage certainly unforgettable recordings! In order to follow the migration and to experience the huge Serengeti in full beauty, we will change our stay after 2 nights - so we can make the best use of the days. The expanse of the Milky Way and the sounds of the African night round off our exciting days
(B/L/D).

Day 9  Serengeti National Park - Karatu
The animals are early risers and so we start again directly after sunrise with a short game drive (alternatively you can book a flight with a hot air balloon this morning). After breakfast at our camp, we pack our things and then head off to the southern Serengeti. Here the grass is usually very short and hardly a bush or tree manages to dig its roots deep enough into the hard ground. An ideal area for cheetahs and gazelles. Both excellent sprinters, who prefer to live in this region, because lions or leopards in the almost uncovered area have little chance to hunt them. Then we leave Serengeti towards Ngorongoro Highland - a welcome stop on the bumpy ride is our visit to Olduvai Gorge: Famous for their human footprints, which are about 3 million years old. We learn a lot of interesting things in the small museum and enjoy the view from the viewpoint. Our accommodation in Karatu is reached in late afternoon: enjoy a chai and the last rays of the day in the beautifully landscaped garden or at the pool of the lodge; 230 km - 2 overnight at
Endoro Lodge***, Bougainvillea Safari Lodge*** or Country Lodge**(*) in Karatu (B/L/D).

Day 10  Ngorongoro Crater
At dawn we drive off Karatu to descend into Ngorongoro Crater. The view from the edge of the crater into the landscape of the caldera alone makes us understand why the crater has been designated an UNESCO World Heritage Site. On the crater floor, we are looking for the "Big Five": lions, leopards, elephants, rhinoceros and buffaloes. But also hippos, wildebeest and gazelles as well as many birds live here in a confined space. Only giraffes are not able to climb the steep crater walls. We picnic in the crater, then stop at the tombs of Michael and Bernhard Grzimek and at a viewpoint with a view of the Rift Valley, before returning to our beautiful lodge. Here, after a very special day full of highlights and unforgettable impressions, a delicious dinner awaits us (B/L/D).

Day 11 Karatu - Zanzibar
After so many exciting days in the savannah and on dusty game drives, it is now time for relaxation. Immediately after breakfast we drive to Arusha, where we take a short stop in the city depending on the flight time. Then take a short flight of about 1 hour from Arusha or Kilimanjaro airport to the spice island of Zanzibar to Stone Town. Our English-speaking transferguide, which takes us to our hotel in the east of the island, where the most beautiful beaches of the island are waiting for us, awaits us: 4 nights we stay in this tropical paradise; 140 km - 4 overnights at Hotel Casa del Mar***, Ras Michamvi Beach Resort*** or Hotel Dongwe Ocean View*** (*) in Zanzibar (B).

Day 12-14 Zanzibar - 3 full days!
Good morning in Zanzibar! In the next days, pool, sun, beach and sea await us - best conditions for relaxing days! White sandy beaches of this island invite you to relax and the turquoise Indian Ocean for swimming or snorkelling. With extensive beach walks in this idyll you can let your mind wander. Perhaps you also want to go on excursions (optional): Discover the lively Stone Town with its narrow streets, small souvenir shops and cafes or take a tour to a spice farm (B).

Day 15 Zanzibar - Flight to Germany
Well recovered? One last bath in the sea or a beach walk? At around noon your transfer guide will take you to Stone Town Airport. Via Addis Abeba you fly back to Germany; 60 km (B).

Day 16 Arrival in Germany
We arrive in Frankfurt in the course the day.
Now it's time to say goodbye to your travel group. With your included Rail & Fly ticket you can travel comfortably back to your home town.
