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
Partake in community activities in Mto wa Mbu with a guided stroll around the farming areas
Take a mind-blowing safari across the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater in an open-roof 4X4 for a chance to see the 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.

If you want to experience it all, do the camping trips. Yes it was sometimes a bit challenging getting off the truck and setting up your own tent etc. But the camadrae that you formed with your crew and fellow travelers was the best. You didn’t just head off to a hotel room but spent time helping each other, doing the chores together etc I’m going back for more.

Intrepid is a very well organized organization that offers interesting trips all over the world. They give you a very close look into the real life of the people in the country you are traveling in. They support good local organizations, so that the local people can help themselves to approve their life. It is very important to me, that intrepid travels as environmental friendly as possible and tries to reduce especially the amount of plastic bags.
