(white, black and the last two northern white rhino on the planet).

Kenya Classic Safari: Zanzibar Extension

  • 3 nights Matemwe Lodge, Zanzibar
  • STARTS: Wilson Airport, Nairobi, Kenya
  • ENDS: Zanzibar Airport, Tanzania

Rather than flying straight home after your safari, fly onward to Zanzibar Island, just off the coast of Tanzania, where you can unwind on a beautiful, white, sandy beach for a few days. Swim in the warm Indian Ocean, snorkel on tropical reefs and enjoy sandbank picnics. Perhaps visit Stone Town for a day to marvel at the mix of Swahili and Arabic architecture and to barter for some souvenirs to take home. Whether you spend your time here simply relaxing and taking stock of your safari adventures or enjoying daytrips and water sports is entirely up to you.

Spend the rest of the afternoon unwinding in your thatch-and-stone chalet right on the ocean, snoozing in the hammock or swimming in one of the two pools.
