Tanzanian Safari Zanzibar Beach Getaway – 2 nights Arusha | 1 night Tarangire | 3 nights Serengeti | 4 nights Zanzibar
Melanie from Pembury Tours was great to work with and helped us have a fantastic trip. We weren’t sure where in Africa we wanted to go so she asked us questions to get to know us and what we most wanted to do on our trip. She answered all of our questions very quickly and prepared everything with not a whole lot of time (we booked at the beginning of October for a late November trip). She also worked within our budget by giving us options of how to make the price better. She provided packing lists, general “before you travel” info, and information on getting our vaccines and visas. We ended up spending two nights in Arusha, with one day in Arusha National Park and a walking safari which allowed us to get really close to a family of giraffes. Then we joined a group tour to spend one day in Tarangire National Park, two days in Serengeti National Park, and one day in the Ngorongoro Crater before heading back to Arusha. Our safari guide was Rashidi from Tanzania Experience and he was absolutely fantastic. From there we flew to Zanzibar for one night in Stone Town and two nights on the east coast (where we saw the most beautiful sunrise over the Indian Ocean!) It was so nice not having to worry about transportation or meals at all once we were there, my husband said he felt like he was on a cruise because everything was taken care of and went so smoothly. I don’t think there’s any way I could have planned a similar trip without someone like Melanie’s help!
