Zanzibar offers a tangle of narrow and ancient alleyways to explore in Stone Town and dazzling white beaches. The coast and Zanzibar are steeped in a long Muslim tradition, while Northern Tanzania is home to the red-robed Masai people who stalk the plains with their cattle as they have done for centuries.
The Serengeti National Park has an abundance of game on its grassy plains, where thousands of hoofed animals are followed by the predators, while the Ngorongoro Crater has been declared a World Heritage Site as one of the most important refuges for wildlife in Africa. Time on the beach and a safari makes a perfect combination.
This overland tour offers tropical beaches, tranquil lakes, scenic landscapes and mighty waterfalls. Zanzibar is a cultural melting pot where you can explore the intriguing alleyways of old Stone Town and enjoy the exotic palm-backed beaches, while Lake Malawi is a peaceful inland freshwater sea where it's impossible not to relax on the sandy beaches. Victoria Falls is one of the world's natural wonders, and there are plenty of adventure activities on offer based around the mighty Zambezi River.
A combination of two of our most popular overland tours sees your experience the varying faces of Africa, from the island paradise beaches of Zanzibar to gorilla viewing in the rain forests.

The memory of the Gorilla Trek and observing these amazing creatures as they meander and feed in their ever-diminishing habitat will remain with you forever. You will be caught up in the way of life, which is hard to leave.
