2-days safari from Zanzibar itinerary


Day 1: Fly from Zanzibar to Arusha airport then Tarangire.

Start your 2-day Tanzania safari from Zanzibar with a pick-up from the hotel (included) and drive to Zanzibar Airport. Arrive at Arusha airport in the morning, around 9 am. After being familiar with your safari guide, start a drive to Tarangire National Park and proceed with a full-day game drive.

The park covers an area of 2,600 square kilometers, and the park’s animal concentration during the dry season can rival that of the famous Serengeti. Among the predators in this park are lions, cheetahs, and leopards. These animals share watering holes with various bird species, including green wood hoopoes, fisher lovebirds, tall herons, white-bellied go-away birds, and giant kingfishers.

Tarangire is renowned for its baobab trees and picturesque views of expansive savannahs and acacia woodlands. The peculiar, ancient baobab trees are considered by the Maasai people to be the first trees on earth.

What else could be more exciting than visiting the home of elephants and baobab trees? Explore the wildlife and nature till evening when you will head to Farm Of Dreams for dinner and your overnight stay.

Day 2: Ngorongoro Crater then Fly back to Zanzibar

After an early breakfast,  drive to Ngorongoro and descend into the Crater on a journey to find the black rhino.

Referred to as the eighth natural wonder of the world, the Ngorongoro Crater stands as the largest intact caldera globally formed approximately 2 million years ago when the Ngorongoro volcano erupted and its walls collapsed.

Currently boasting a width of over 19 kilometers, the Ngorongoro Crater features diverse landscapes, including expansive acacia forests, swamps teeming with hippos, and vast open grasslands.

Animals found are elephants, warthogs, flamingos, a spectacular array of bird species, the elusive black rhinoceros, and all the apex predators.

Additionally, the Maasai people can often be observed tending to their cattle, peacefully coexisting with buffalo and wildebeest in this remarkable natural sanctuary.

In the afternoon, you will stop for lunch with the Hippo Lake view and then enjoy another game drive as you ascend back up to the crater.

Drive back to Arusha Airport for your evening flight back to Zanzibar marking the end of your 2 days safari fly-in from Zanzibar to Tarangire and Ngorongoro.

“This depends on how much time you have and how many parks you want to visit. Most popular options are 2-3 day safaris.”

“You’ll need comfortable clothing in neutral colors, a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, insect repellent, and binoculars. Some camps offer laundry services, so you don’t need to pack too many clothes.”

“Yes, safaris are generally very safe. However, it is important to follow your guide’s instructions and stay inside the vehicle when on game drives.”

“No matter how much time you have available, experiencing a safari is always worthwhile. While a proper safari typically involves spending several nights in the bush, sometimes a shorter Tanzania safari is all you can manage.
Perhaps you’re visiting Dar es Salaam for business and have a free weekend to spare, or you’ve planned a beach getaway in Zanzibar and want to add a two-day safari to your itinerary. Alternatively, budget constraints might limit you to a brief two-day safari. Even on an overnight tour, you’ll be surprised by how much you can see and absorb.”

Amazing Safari in Tanzania We had the most amazing safari in Tanzania with Zamunda. Salim was so helpful at organising our trip and was even more helpful in helping sort our bags that were lost by the airline. We were so incredibly lucky to have the best safari guide in the world in Godfrey, not only was his knowledge of the wild animals incredible his skill at finding them was unrivalled. But most importantly he was a lovely man and we could never thank him enough for giving us the most truly magical and amazing 5 days on safari with him. It was an experience of a lifetime and Godfrey was instrumental to that! I could not recommend both Salim and Godfrey enough and going on safari with Zamunda is something we will never forget and is an absolute must for anyone looking to go on safari in Tanzania. Thank you to both Godfrey and Salim! We will be recommending you to all our friends!
Best Safari with Asad and Salim We choose the 5five days Safari with Zamunda travel with camping family tour of 4person. Second day we share the Safari with two Japanese. Everything was great. It was the second cheapest offer on net but includes pick up at AirPort in the middle of the night, sleeping in hotel before start the Safari and first night of Safari we slept in lounge with swimming pool. Great option after long travel from Europe. It was our second time on Safari with my husband and we appreciate the guide Asad, chief David and Osman the best. We saw everything what we wanted, Asad stopped and guide everything what we whished. After Safari Salim organise also tickets for our way to Dar el Salaam. We did not find anything what could be better to do :0)

Best Safari Friendly team. Our guide knew a lot and took our wishes into account. We saw the big five. The food was very good for camping.
Unforgettable safari with tent nights In September 2023 we went on a 4-day safari (3 nights) through the Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangiri parks with Zamunda Safari Tours. We booked the tour, including the domestic flights from Zanzibar to Tanzania and back, online from Zanzibar at very short notice. Salim immediately organized the flights, airport transfer, guide, cook and accommodation and we didn't have to worry about anything else. At first we were a little unsure whether everything was above board, as several things were unusual for European conditions. All of the flight tickets were issued with significant spelling mistakes in the names of the travelers, arrival at the airport was tight and the costs were slightly higher than stated on the website due to an adjustment by the airline. However, our uncertainty was absolutely unfounded, as the domestic flights are handled super easily and efficiently and deviations from the passport do not play a role compared to international flights. The whole safari was an unforgettable, wonderful experience that we were able to experience throughout in a private safari jeep. We saw pretty much all the animals that live in the parks, apart from the rhinoceros. Abouh, our guide/driver, had a good eye and a lot of background knowledge, the cook did an excellent job and the accommodation was good and practical and gave us unforgettable animal encounters at the sleeping place. We particularly enjoyed the two nights in the tent and would prefer a lodge next time. But the combination with the last night in a lodge with its own bathroom is of course very pleasant. We can highly recommend the tour and would like to thank Salim again!

Private Safari to Northern Serengeti My girlfriend and I went on a 5 days (4 nights) private safari with Zamunda tours. To summarize it - I would always do it this way again - which was a great recommendation of Salim 1) it’s the only way to get to the northern Serengeti which is beautiful remote and we saw the migration over the Mara river - while staying in an absolutely luxurious tented lodge (these lodges are only temporary for a couple of month a year there). We heard Hyenas and other wildlife at night - while being guarded at night by a Masaai men who was protecting the camp at night. While every part of the safari had its uniqueness- I would always come back to see the Northern Serengeti as it’s way less populated and stunning. The migration was overwhelming- we even saw a wildebeest being catched by crocodiles - an experience which really makes me consider becoming vegetarian….. 2) only a private safari gives you the opportunity to move around within the Jeep to get the best view on wildlife- which is very important depending on which side of the car the wildlife is. I had direct eyesight with a lion 1m of each other which was quite intense….. the lion liked the shade of our Jeep and liked a little bit to much our rear tyre. Once the lion started to lick and play with the paws with our tyre it was time to hit the road again. Needless to say a private tour also gives you the opportunity to follow your own pace, have the guides attention for your questions and set the priorities. Ours were the Hippos - our true spirit animals. Jonathan (who was an amazing guide) took us therefore especially to places with hippos where we could see them outside the pond as well during daytime. Thanks a lot!! We first looked at shared safaris and were considering the cost. Fun fact - my girlfriend doesn’t like camping (many thanks to her) which was very great in the end. If we would have camped in tents we would have been soaking wet - as quite unusual for the time of the year - a warm front passed through. The rain was drumming on our roof while we were sleeping in a king size bed in our lodge. You can imagine how people in the other Jeep’s looked like when we passed them next morning ???? Last but not least - why Zamunda? The guys are awesome! They arranged everything reliable and perfectly. It was a unique and more perfect experience then we ever thought - including airport pickup etc. We have done already some other safaris - however this was just stunning. Next to that - in Arusha are many international corporations - Zamunda is a true local company - so go for it! Many thanks Jonathan and Salim for this unique experience! ????

Private Safari We did a private safari of five days and have been to Tarangire, the central and northern Serengeti and Ngorongoro. All was perfect. Right from the beginning of planing the communication was easy and Salim adviced us well. He gave us different options and choices, so we could plan the best tour to our wishes. The Safari itself was awesome. Jonathan has been a great guide. He explained everything about the animals and the landscape but also gave us the space to relax and enjoy ourselves. The lodges have all been very good choosen and we loved falling a sleep and getting awake by the Sound of nature. Thank you so much for making our trip unforgettable.
Amazing 4 day camping safari! What a fantastic trip from the start to the end! The communication with Salim went smooth and fast from the start to the end with pick up from the airport and nice breefing the evening before the safari in the hotel. The trip to tarangire, serengeti and Ngorongoro was beautifull! William was our driver and we couldn’t be more happy with him, great mood and showing us all the parks have to offer with the big five as icing on the cake. Our cook Halid was really the best. Our son especially loved the soups and our daughter the fried bananas. The decision to do a camping trip turned out as an excellent choice for us (family of 4 with 2 kids 11 and 17 years old) Thank you!
Great all- round safari experience Just returning home reluctantly from a wonderful safari in Tanzania with Zamunda tours. My daughter, son-in-law and I went to Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro in late August in an action packed schedule expertly arranged by Zamunda in close consultation with us. We were met in our Arusha hotel by Salim before beginning, to make sure everything was right, and our driver Abouh took over the next day. Abouh took every care to see that our animal viewings were quality ones. His English is very good and his knowledge of animals extensive. He was very patient when we wanted to spend as much time with warthogs and hyenas as big cats. His excellent driving ensured we covered big distances safely and without running late, and he was always working to set up picnic lunches, supervise our baggage and generally attend to the behind the scenes details so that we could enjoy a stress free holiday. Abouh took us to less frequented sites and we felt that we gained as much as we could in a short time. I thoroughly recommend Zamunda as a tour operator and Abouh as a young, energetic and passionate guide.
