Tanzania Safari and Zanzibar

Safari and sea - a classic combination

After exploring the African plains on safari, wash off the dust of the bush with a few days of rustic beach bliss on the tropical island of Zanzibar before heading back home. 

The raw and remote wilderness areas of southern Tanzania - namely Ruaha National Park and Nyerere National Park - are within easy access of the Spice Island of Zanzibar, making this a convenient combination.

The seclusion of southern Tanzania's parks pairs particularly well with a stay in Matemwe on Zanzibar. This corner of the island enjoys a peaceful location while still within easy reach of the busier areas and attractions.
