Day 1: Arusha
Jambo! Welcome to Tanzania. Meet your fellow adventurers and Local Leader upon arrival.

  • Our hotel in Arusha: Kibo Palace Hotel

Day 2: Arusha > Tarangire National Park
Today, we journey to Tarangire National Park. This park is home to the second highest concentration of wildlife in Tanzania, after the Serengeti. After our game drive, we head to camp for dinner and stargazing. (b, l, d)

  • Our lodge in Tarangire: Sangaiwe Tented Lodge

Day 3: Tarangire National Park > Serengeti National Park
After breakfast, we head to the gates of the Serengeti National Park and search for wildlife en route to our camp. This afternoon, we head out on another game drive along the plains of the Serengeti in search of the “Big 5.” (b, l, d)

  • Our camp in Serengeti: Ang’ata Serengeti Camp

Day 4: Serengeti National Park
Start the day with a game drive at dawn. We explore while the animals are at their most active, then head back to camp for brunch. After spending the warmer part of the day relaxing, we depart again at dusk for another adventure. (b, l, d)

  • Our camp in Serengeti: Ang’ata Serengeti Camp

Day 5: Serengeti National Park > Karatu
The world-renowned Ngorongoro Crater awaits us today. Teeming with wildlife, the crater is widely regarded as a microcosm of natural habitats in Africa. Here, you may catch a glimpse of the highly endangered black rhinoceros. Tonight we stay on the rim of the crater. (b, l, d)

  • Our camp in Karatu: Pembeni Rhotia Camp

Day 6: Karatu > Zanzibar
A short flight brings us to the “spice island” of Zanzibar. Filled with idyllic beaches, winding cobblestone alleyways and fragrant bazaars, Zanzibar’s rich history is abundant. The best way to see this exotic port town is on foot, exploring the bazaars, shops, mosques and intricate alleyways. (b)

  • Our hotel in Zanzibar: Dhow Palace Hotel

Day 7: Zanzibar > Nungwi
We drive to the north coast this morning. Along the way, we visit a spice plantation. Here, we connect with the stories of the spice trade — and smell and taste various spices. Later we arrive at the northern beaches, where white sands and the sparkling blue sea await. This is the Indian Ocean at its best. (b, d)

  • Our hotel in Nungwi: Azanzi Beach Hotel

Day 8: Nungwi
Today is yours — snorkeling or simply relaxing in a hammock under a coconut tree are two great options. (b, l, d)

Our adventure ends today. Perhaps you’ll extend your stay on the beach or return to the mainland. (b)

Things to know before traveling to Tanzania

CURRENCY:
When it comes to money matters on the trip, every traveler is a little different. You know your spending habits better than we do, so please budget a sensible amount for things like meals not included, drinks, shopping, optional activities, tipping and laundry. It’s always better to bring a little more than you think you’ll need.

Credit cards are generally accepted in tourist shops and some restaurants across Africa. Visa and MasterCard are generally preferred over American Express, Diners, etc. Smaller venues take cash only. Foreign currency is easily changed at exchange bureaus and they generally offer the best rates.

VACCINATIONS:
You should consult your doctor for up-to-date medical travel information or for any necessary vaccinations and anti-malarial requirements before departure. We recommend that you carry a first aid kit as well as any personal medical requirements (including a spare pair of glasses) as they may not easily be obtained at the locations on this trip.

YELLOW FEVER:
A valid international certificate of vaccination against Yellow Fever is required in many countries if you are arriving from a country with risk of yellow fever. You may need to present this on arrival at the airport or border crossing. Some countries will refuse entry if you are unable to present your certificate. It's also quite common for your home country to request a Yellow Fever certificate on your arrival back home.

It is your responsibility to check with your doctor well in advance of leaving home about the Yellow Fever requirements for the countries you'll be visiting.

DRINKING WATER:
As a rule we recommend you don't drink tap water, even in hotels, as it may contain much higher levels of different minerals than the water you are used to at home. For local people this is not a problem as their bodies are used to this and can cope, but for visitors drinking the tap water can result in illness. Generally this isn't serious, an upset stomach being the only symptom, but it's enough to spoil a day or two of your holiday. Many hotels and lodges provide safe drinking water, while bottled water is another alternative. Water consumption should be about two liters a day. Re-hydration salts, motion sickness tablets, and diarrhea blockers are available from many pharmacies.

TSETSE FLY:
It is best to avoid dark co loured clothes such as blue and black while on safari. These colors can attract the biting tsetse fly.

CONSERVATIVE DRESS FOR WOMEN:
In many parts of Africa women travelers should dress modestly as there is a wide range of cultural differences. Wear skirts or shorts that reach just above the knee and tops that cover shoulders at a minimum. If visiting coastal areas wear a cover-up when you step off the beaches.

PLASTIC BAG BANS ACROSS AFRICA:
While Namibia holds people liable to a fine of N$500 or imprisonment for entering Game Parks with a plastic bag, Botswana has announced a countrywide ban on plastic bags to come into effect on 1 November 2018. The ban will make the importing, trading and commercial use of plastic bags a criminal offence. Exceptions will be made for plastics that are essential for health and hygiene. With these announcements, Botswana and Namibia join other African countries such as Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, Tunisia, Morocco, Rwanda, Uganda, Somalia and Eritrea that have banned plastic bags. South Africa imposed a levy on plastic bags in 2004 but they have not yet been banned.

Many countries are strictly enforcing this and have been searching luggage at border points. Camping stores are good for obtaining waterproof reusable bags, for dirty laundry etc, prior to departure.

VISAS:
Visas are the responsibility of the individual traveler. Entry requirements can change at any time, so it’s important that you check for the latest information. Please visit the relevant consular website of the country or countries you’re visiting for detailed and up-to-date visa information specific to your nationality. Your consultant will also be happy to point you in the right direction with acquiring visas. Visas can take several weeks to process, so familiarize yourself with any requirements as soon as you have booked your trip to allow for processing time.

TRAVEL INSURANCE:
Travel insurance is compulsory for all our trips. We require that, at a minimum, you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. Please ask your travel agent or Club Adventures team member for insurance options at time of booking.
