Safari from Zanzibar. Explore Tanzania's Wildlife.

If you're planning a trip to Zanzibar and want to experience the thrill of a safari, you're in luck! Tanzania is home to some of the best wildlife parks in the world, and many of them are just a short flight away from Zanzibar.

Here's everything you need to know about taking a safari from Zanzibar:

  • Safari Parks : Tanzania has several safari parks that you can visit from Zanzibar. Some of the most popular ones include Serengeti National Park, Saadani National Park and Nyerere National park, formerly Selous Game Reserve. Each of these parks has its own unique wildlife and landscapes.
  • Safari Activities : The most popular activity on a safari is a game drive, where you can explore the park and spot a variety of wildlife. ​We do boat safaris in Saadani and Selous, which gets you close to water based wildlife including hippos, crocodiles and large variety of birds. You can also go on guided walks, take hot air balloon rides, and visit local villages to learn about the traditional way of life in Tanzania.
