East African Explorer - 21 Days
DAYS 1 - 7
Victoria Falls, South Luangwa National Park, Malawi
Our camp is beside the Upper Zambezi River and a great base from which to explore Victoria Falls. Numerous exciting activities are available – white water rafting, scenic flights, canoeing and gorge swinging. We also visit the Victoria Falls themselves. From Livingstone we continue north, passing through Lusaka en route to South Luangwa National Park for two nights where we enjoy a game drive. Moving on, we reach Malawi, the ‘warm heart’ of Africa. Passing through Lilongwe we reach the enormous Lake Malawi, Africa’s third largest lake, where we camp on sandy beaches, enjoy the swimming and meet the famously friendly locals.
DAYS 8 - 14
Malawi, Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar
We continue along the lakeshore and into Tanzania. Travelling through some remote areas, we pass through Mikumi National Park before reaching the Indian Ocean coast and port city, Dar es Salaam. ‘Dar’ is Tanzania’s main commercial centre and the jump-off point for Zanzibar - the ‘Spice Island’! Time here is at your leisure. Rich in history, Zanzibar offers a blissful mix of exotic spice markets, winding alleyways and old palaces as well as sparkling, blue ocean and long stretches of palm-fringed sands.
NB Basic shared accommodation is included on Zanzibar however meals will be for your own account allowing you to experience some of the many different options available on Zanzibar. Please refer to the tour dossier (available below) for more information.
DAYS 15 - 21
Serengeti Plains, Nairobi
Back on the African mainland we travel back inland where, in clear weather, we may spot snow-capped Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak (5895m), as we drive towards Tanzania’s safari capital, Arusha. Hold a snake - if you dare - in the Meserani Snake Park and make friends on a guided walk to the local village to learn something of Masai culture. From Arusha we transfer to 4x4 vehicles for a 3-day game viewing safari in Tanzania’s premier parks, experiencing close wildlife encounters in the deep basin of the Ngoronogoro Crater and the open plains of the Serengeti. We game drive through exciting scenery by day and camp out under the stars, listening to the sounds of Africa by night! We return to Arusha for a final day’s drive across the border into Kenya and finish our tour in Nairobi.
