Overview

Tanzania safari and Zanzibar Skies ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Tanzania safari and Zanzibar combines a classic safari vehicle that tour you around the game-rich parks with the luxury of the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft. This itinerary offers you a unique opportunity to explore the wildlife hotspots of the picturesque Serengeti, the wilds of Tarangire and the extended Ngorongoro Caldera. Transcend this breathtaking immersion into Tanzania’s wildlife with a relaxing dip in the warm, inviting waters of Zanzibar.

The combination of safari and beach strikes the perfect balance between the thrill of tracking down some awe-inspiring wildlife and the indulgence of taking it easy on the beach, as you enjoy the beauty of nature in its many forms. Nothing is overlooked with this itinerary, so you can be sure that you’ll experience the very best of Tanzania! 

Why is it recommended to do both a Tanzania safari and Zanzibar experience? 

Tanzania is an unparalleled safari destination, setting aside a generous quarter of its surface area for conservation and wildlife protection. The endless plains of the iconic Serengeti National Park, the world-renowned Ngorongoro Caldera “wildlife fishbowl”, and the vast Selous Game Reserve are vital sanctuaries that collectively harbor an estimated 20 percent of Africa’s large mammal population, including some members of the Big Five safari animals, such as elephants, buffaloes and black rhinoceros. Our expertly designed, customizable Tanzania safari and Zanzibar beach adventures will allow you to create a world-class holiday experience that fits well with your own travel plans, budget, interests and expectations.

Is Zanzibar a good holiday destination?

Known for its picturesque white-sand beaches and turquoise blue waters, Zanzibar is the perfect paradise for your dream Tanzania safari and beach experience. We can organize your stay on the best beaches in Zanzibar, where you can do as little or as much as you like. What we love so much about Zanzibar Island is that the paradise setting allows you to relax and enjoy a wide range of different activities designed to fit perfectly with your interests and travel style. Some of these optional extras can easily be combined with the amazing accommodation that we have hand picked for you on the island. 

Zanzibar Beach Adventures

If you wish to explore the beauty of the underwater world, we recommend you try our private guided snorkeling and diving experience on the most stunning island of Mnemba Atoll. Mnemba Island is located just off the northeast coast of Zanzibar and is considered to be the best spot for diving and snorkelling because of its rich marine life, stunning coral reefs, and clear warm waters. Beneath the surface of the waves, vibrant coral reefs form the backdrop to a multi-splendored array of life, including gentle whale sharks, ghostly manta rays, and elusive dugong. From unique private dive pools to luxury spa treatments and fantastic underwater adventures, the options for Zanzibar beach excursions are as limitless as the possibility of seeing a zebra on a safari in the vast Serengeti!

My first safari ever… My first safari ever was with Wito and I loved and loved them! My guides were Micheal and Richard - they were extremely knowledgeable, great at spotting animals, and just nice men all around - polite, respectful, helpful. What I thought was so wonderful about Michael was that he was always picking up trash that he spotted on our drives - he truly cared about the animals and their home. I would absolutely use Wito again and highly recommend Micheal and Richard.

Incredible Experience! Incredible Experience!! Somos una familia de españoles que hemos tenido la gran suerte de poder disfrutar de un safari con Wito por las tierras de Tanzania. Me gusta destacar varios puntos, primero que éramos una familia. Teníamos dudas de si llevar a los niños a un viaje como este y finalmente decidimos hacerlo. Fue un acierto. Tanto las personas de Wito, como el guía que nos atendió, se portaron fenomenal, estuvieron muy atentos a que disfrutásemos mucho y demostraron la máxima profesionalidad y conocimiento del terreno. Pudimos visitar Arusha, Lake Manyala, el Serengueti, el Ngorongoro y disfrutar de una experiencia conviviendo con la tribu Massai... todo genial: trato, localizaciones, conocimiento... los hoteles muy bien elegidos... en fin, si yo estuviese en tu lugar y estás dudando DECIDETE. Wito es la mejor opción. Gracias chicos.

Thanks for making my dreams come true!!! This was my first time not only in Tanzania but at a country within Africa. I felt so welcomed and respected by not only the team but by the people in Tanzania from the moment I left the airport to the moment I arrived back to the airport. Wito Africa Safaris allowed me to achieve my goal of reaching the top of mount Kili. The mountain guides and porter team were so cheerful, polite and encouraging. If i had to recommend any company to go with when embarking on such a great adventure I would pick Wito Africa Safaris. I had a lovely time on the safari and I plan to go again with Wito Africa Safaris and their guide Glory. 🙂

An epic time in Tanzania It was my first safari ever and i couldnt have hoped for more. The organisation and choice of accomodation by Abdullie was perfect. Our two guides Michael and Glory were spectacular. you name what you want to see, they will find it. from super rare small cats to mating lions,lion cubs and chasing leopards, mud covered hippos and complaining zebras. Michaels abilities to imitate animal noises were hilarious (the hippo was my personal favourite). we had such a good,fun time and there was no challenge our two guides didnt master. special dietary restrictions for individuals were all catered for.

Truly a dream safari I've been several times on safari in different countries but this was my first time in Tanzania and I couldn't have chosen a better safari company for the trip. Since the first moment I felt that Abdullie was offering me the best safari for the days I had and what I wanted. And I wasn't wrong... the itinerary and the different accomodations, everything was perfect. We didn't have long transfers so we had lots of time for game drives. All the accomodations were excellent, I specially liked the tented camp in Serengeti, with the wildebeest passing in front of us when we were by the fire at night and having breakfast under the acacia tree. The lodge in Ngorongoro was also remarkable with stunning views. And Tanzania was fantastic! I especially enjoyed Serengeti and Ngorongoro and I wish I had more days there... next time! We had some very special moments and wildlife sightings and I also enjoyed the interaction with the maasai kids and the visit to the school where I delivered some supplies and clothes. I encourage everyone to include in their trips some sort of interaction with the local communities. I was very lucky to have Bosco as my guide and Abdullie hosting the trip. Bosco is a experienced guide and I really appreciated his respect for the environment and wildlife (no need to race with other cars! and I loved when he stopped the car and we were in silence with the beautiful landscape and the animals) We were alone in many sightings, as with the lion on the tree in Serengeti, and Bosco was the best positioning the car for photography. He was also attentive to my movements and when I wanted to take pictures. He was very informative but giving me space to enjoy the moment. Abdullie was a fantastic host, we shared the passion for wildlife, and I can't thank him enough getting for me the hot air balloon ride one night for the next morning. He took care of everything during the trip and he really cared I got the complete experience! I can't reccommend more Wito Africa Safaris and Abdullie to plan your safari. Thanks for a fantastic week! We'll see each other again soon!

Awesome We spent 3 marvelous days with Godwin in Tarangire, Manyara Lake and Ngorongoro crater. He speaks perfect english, is funny but formal. He explained to us a lot of things about the big amount of animals we could see. Also some curiosities about the flora. No doubt, we would repeat.

Amazing Safari experience! We started working with Abdullie to create our itinerary 2 years ago. Our original plan was to visit Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania, however due to covid we decided to visit only Tanzania this year. We visited Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, the Northern Serengeti and the Central Serengeti. Every aspect of our safari was so well planned, and the accommodations were lovely. We had two guides during the duration of our trip, Michael and Juma. Both guides were not only extremely knowledgeable, but so personable and were just as excited to see things as we were, and they were so patient (we had a lot of questions!). It was great to hear how much they knew about the wildlife and the areas, but we really enjoyed getting to know them as individuals. To say Michael’s knowledge of birds was amazing would be an understatement. My husband would quickly describe a bird he saw to Michael and he would be able to tell us the type of bird and explain it to us. On top of that, he would always show us in the book and explain further. Juma’s knowledge of the areas we were in were just astonishing. Sometimes I wondered where we were driving (not that I would have known anyway!), or what we were waiting for, but Juma was always a step ahead. On our last day in the Central Serengeti he drove us further out, and didn’t stop searching for male lions as those were the one big cat we hadn’t seen. Sure enough, Juma found us 3 male lions together!! The best part? We were the ONLY car there, so we were able to spend as much time watching them. Abdullie and his team were available at all times…even with the time difference, Abdullie answered my emails and texts so quickly, regardless of the time. We really appreciated the communication between the team: Abdullie checking in on us, Michael connecting with Juma when we were changing locations, and vice versa. They just worked so well as a team…it wasn’t as if one individual knew something that the others didn’t, they were all in the communication loop. We truly loved every aspect of our trip. There isn’t anything we would change. Abdullie was so patient with me throughout the whole planning phase (believe me, I know I’m not the easiest person to work with!), always quickly responding to my numerous emails and questions. Michael and Juma ensured we saw everything we wanted to, and spent as much or as little time viewing the animals as we wanted. In Tarangire there were elephants everywhere, and since Michael knew how much I loved elephants, he would point them out and stop EVERY SINGLE TIME we spotted them (which was quite often lol), and he would just stop and wait until I had gotten enough of watching them. We saw several river crossings in the Northern Serengeti because Juma was determined to have us watch as many as we could. Everything throughout our trip was seamless. Would we work with Abdullie and Wito Africa Safaris again? Well, we have the second part of our trip booked for next year already and it wouldn’t be with anyone else! The amount of time Abdullie and his team put into creating the perfect itinerary for you really shows. I realize this is an extensive review, however this is short compared to how much more I wanted to write about Abdullie and his team, and our trip in general. I highly recommend anyone who is looking to plan their safari, to just get in touch with Wito…I guarantee from the first response you receive from Abdullie you’ll feel like he’s a friend who just wants to plan the perfect trip for you. You won’t regret it!

FAQs

Can you go on a Tanzania safari from Zanzibar?
Yes, you can! Combining a Tanzania safari and Zanzibar experience is the perfect way to fully enjoy adventure & relaxation in equal measure.
What is the best month to go on an African safari?
The classic time to visit Tanzania is during the main dry season, from June to October, when good weather conditions can be expected across the country and wildlife viewing should be spectacular.

Another major highlight is the migration calving season in Serengeti (December – March), which coincides with good trekking conditions on Kilimanjaro and fair weather down on the coast, too.
Where does the tour start and end?
This private safari experience starts in Tanzania at the Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) and ends the Abeid Amani Karume International Airport (ZNZ).

Our private safari guide and vehicle will meet and greet you upon arrival, and they will transfer you back to the airport on your last day of your safari experience with us.
Do you arrange my airport transfers?
Airport transfers are included in the price of this private safari experience. In this case our private safari guide/representative and vehicle will be at the airport to meet & greet you upon arrival. When you arrive at the airport, please proceed to the arrival areas and look for a sign with your last name written on it.
How much does African safari cost?
Your total cost will vary depending on seasonality, size of group and specific travel arrangements, but this is a good guideline for an all-inclusive safari (everything except international flights):

$499 USD per person per day for 3-star accommodation
$699 USD pp per day for 4-star
$999+ USD pp per day for 5-star

It’s worth noting that, depending on your itinerary, your lodge cost will make up about 75–85% of your total safari trip cost. Our rates are per person sharing unless stated otherwise. Single supplements may apply. Accommodation are subject to availability.
