Tanzania 11 days 850 km

Highlights of the North

Tanzania is truly gifted by Mother Nature, but the Northern region really is the spoiled kid. You tumble from one legendary safari park to another, all within a stone's throw distance. You start and end in Arusha and visit Tarangire, Lake Manyara, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. Great to combine with a Kilimanjaro or Zanzibar add-on.

Tanzania 18 days 1650 km

Bush to Beach

Where in the world can you combine world class safari, visit tribal villages, hike in mountains and swim in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean - into one epic trip? This is the ultimate one-way road trip. Start in Arusha and end in Dar es Salaam. The Usambaras and Swahili coast are far less touristy and possible to explore on a budget.

Tanzania 13 days 1430 km

The wild south east

This roadtrip starts and ends in Dar es Salaam and covers the far less visited parks of south east Tanzania. Ideal for those that want to get of the tourist trail for friendly prices. Go on world class safari in Ruaha National Park and Selous Game Reserve, experience local village in typical highland villages, and go birding and primate trekking in the Udzungwa Mountains.
