Take in the best of Tanzania on this trip from Stone Town to Nairobi
Get ready for a wildlife-filled adventure on this East African road-trip. Full of incredible scenery, fascinating cultures and more animals than you can count, this trip from Zanzibar's Stone Town up into the slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro, through the Ngorongoro Crater and across the wide expanses of the Serengeti, will amaze you at every turn.
Explore the home of the Big Five beasts of Africa – the Serengeti, a wildlife arena like no other
Hang with local mamas in Arusha preparing a local Swahili dish before being a guest into their home.
Take a mind-blowing safari across the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater in an open-roof 4WD vehicle for a chance to see endangered black rhinoceros
Accompanied by a local crew — a leader, driver and cook – you'll be in excellent hands for the duration of your adventure
Camping in the Serengeti National Park with no barriers between you and the animals is amazing, but it's important to heed the safety advice of your leader. You will be briefed as a group on arrival.
At Usambara Mountains, you'll hike to the beautiful Irente viewpoint. It's not overly strenuous, but a reasonable level of fitness is required.
Purpose-built overland vehicles are used for the duration of this trip. These multi-purpose trucks allow for excellent game viewing, equipped with large sliding windows. There is no air-conditioning, however, so they can get dusty and hot.
The going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads. A little bit of patience will go a long way towards your enjoyment of this beautiful land!
This is a participatory camping trip, so you will be expected to help out with the day-to-day. Embrace the team spirit by setting up and taking down your own tent and assisting with food preparation and cleaning.
As the early bird catches the worm, the early camper sights the animals. There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.
Some passengers on this trip will have been travelling together prior to the start of your trip. To see what you're missing out on check out our Zanzibar to Nairobi trip.

This trip was amazing and showed how vast and diverse the African landscape and wildlife is. Camping in the Serengeti was the highlight for me and I would recommend it to anyone that longs to see animals in their natural environment.

This trip was fantastic, and anyone having reservations about going to Africa should not worry and just go!. Africa is beautiful and seeing it by driving through the continent was a great way!
