Road to Zanzibar

Visit Africa and travel along the road to Zanzibar through Kenya and Tanzania. Cross vast savannas where magnificent herds of elephants roam, enjoy warm village welcomes in lush jungles and see where white sand and palm trees meet the deep, blue sea on the coast of the Indian Ocean. Discover Kenya and Tanzania's spectacular scenery, superb wildlife and fascinating cultures as you travel across East Africa towards the legendary and exotic spice island of Zanzibar.

Day 1 Nairobi
Once a swamp but now called the 'green city in the sun', Nairobi is a relatively multicultural city with a range of cuisines, museums and cultural centres to enjoy.

Day 2 Arusha
Situated close to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro, Arusha is a relaxed, friendly city with a wealth of famous sites on its doorstep.

Day 3 Mto wa Mbu
Situated around halfway between Arusha and Ngorongoro, Mto Wa Mbu is a tiny town located near three rivers which is known for its curios and red-skinned bananas.

Days 4-5 Serengeti National Park
Teeming with animals and home to the famous migration of the wildebeest, the Serengeti is a marvel with rolling plains, iconic acacia trees and mesmerising skies.

Day 6 Ngorongoro Crater
Photographic opportunities abound in the Ngorongoro Crater, a massive volcanic caldera with so many animals, it's hard to know where to look first.

Day 7 Marangu
Nestled at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro, Marangu is a small village surrounded by stunning vistas and lush forest.

Days 8-9 Usambara Mountains
Covered in tropical rainforest and being around 100 million years old, the lush Usambara Mountains have wonderful hiking trails and lovely villages to visit.

Day 10 Dar es Salaam
Dar es Salaam lies by the Indian Ocean and is abuzz with busy streets, laidback restaurants, colourful markets, interesting architecture and lots of water-based activities.

Days 11-14 Zanzibar
Famed for its fragrant spices and infamous for its slave-trading history, Zanzibar mixes divine beaches, an atmospheric main town and Middle Eastern flair with an African beat.
