Africa East & South between Nairobi and Zanzibar
OR VICE
VERSA

OVERVIEW

14 days between Zanzibar and Nairobi or vice versa...

Overlanding is the only way to see East Africa! This classic trip covers the highlights of southern Kenya and northern Tanzania, one of the world's most scenic and most wildlife-packed regions - it is a popular trip and thoroughly deserves its reputation as one of the best trips in Africa. Dragoman have been leading the way in African overland expeditions since 1981, so take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading into the wilds, well away from the usual tourist trail. After leaving Kenya's bustling capital of Nairobi, you have an incredible jeep safari through National Parks, with fantastic opportunities to see the 'Big 5' as well as a wealth of other wildlife. The game viewing continues after you cross the border into Tanzania, with safaris in both the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro National Parks, both packed with animals and home to some truly spectacular scenery. You will camp near the majestic snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro and explore the local village of Mto wa Mbu, famously home to many different cultures and handicrafts. The trip ends with a journey to the famous and evocative tropical island of Zanzibar, where we explore the fascinating old town, tour the wonderful spice plantations, and relax on the idyllic white beaches on the Indian Ocean. Sun, sea, Swahili and safari is a good summary of the trip! An amazing adventure, packed into a an accessible 14 days - join us for this phenomenal African experience!

Itinerary

Please choose a departure date as details may vary:

The incredible blue ocean off Nungwi beach, Zanzibar
Zanzibar

Border Information: If joining at Zanzibar, you will most likely enter Tanzania from Zanzibar Abeid Amani Karume International Airport (IATA code: ZNZ).

There will be an informal meet-and-greet and orientation of Stone Town with our local Zanzibar guide at 6:00pm - please meet at the reception of the joining hotel at this time if you wish to take part in this orientation. Please note that you will not usually meet your regular Dragoman crew tonight, as they will be arriving in Dar es Salaam this evening and will travel to Zanzibar with members of their previous group tomorrow. 

Please note that many of the options listed below will only be possible for those with extra time in Zanzibar before the start of your trip with us - please contact the Sales team if you would like to book pre-tour accommodation with us to have extra time exploring Zanzibar.

In Stone Town we will stay in a good local hotel.

Please note that the first 4 days of this trip overlap with our "YDF - Victoria Falls to Zanzibar" trip, so some of the group that come to Zanzibar will leave before we take the ferry to Dar es Salaam. This is because Zanzibar is part of both trips, so it means customers going all the way through do not follow our Zanzibar itinerary twice!

Mic's friendly personality was appreciated by all the passengers and we really enjoyed meeting up with her again after our travels with her last year in India. Matt again drove us safely along some very trying roads.

Zoe P - - 4th June 2015
I haven't been on this sort of trip before so I didn't know what to expect, nor have I anything to compare it to - so as far as my own experience goes it was excellent!
Walter R - - 4th June 2015
Dave and Ivan (Frenchie) were awesome!
Andreas Martin A - - 4th June 2015
Our cook made the most awsome food, even lasagne on a fire!
Andreas Martin A - - 4th June 2015
Dave a Frenchie were excellent. They were the best pair of leaders/co leaders have had on a trip. They were extremely helpful, created a relaxed, fun atmosphere and went the extra mile to make the trip a unforgettable experience (for example arranging breakfast in a local market).
Robin L - - 4th June 2015
Denford was an excellent chef.
Robin L - - 4th June 2015
Dave and Frenchie were so great at creating "harmony" within the ranks of 21 people on the 21-day Gorilla Loop. Denford is the best cook ever and catered to ever complaining vegetarians, gluten free issues, etc.
Yvonne G - - 4th June 2015
Anja is very organized and thorough. She is also very thoughtful and gave me a cake for my birthday and did some decorations. She was always there when I had questions.
Yvonne G - - 4th June 2015
