The Serengeti is one of the world’s most famous national parks, annually hosting the Great Migration of over 1.5 million wildebeest and 250,000 zebra who follow the grass to and from the neighbouring Maasai Mara in Kenya, as well as an incredible variety of wildlife which is resident year-round.

Walking safari

Wilderness Usawa mobile camp has several bases across the Serengeti, and all are located in designated walking zones. Set out with an expert guide and ranger to get close to the natural world, away from the engine and distraction of the jeep. You will get the chance to see, hear and smell nature during this unparalleled safari experience.

Hot air balloon flight

Take to the skies at dawn for a hot air balloon ride across the plains for the Serengeti. This birds-eye view affords you an appreciation of the sheer scale of this enormous national park, and if you’re lucky, deliver a unique view of animal herds as they wander the seemingly never ending plains.

Days 6–10

Four nights of romance on Zanzibar

Zanzibar is the place to relax on palm-fringed beaches and switch off from the world as dhows sail silently by, enjoying a genuine Indian Ocean paradise where life slows right down to an East African rhythm. With four nights here, there’s plenty of time to soak up the stunning desert-island scenery – powder-white sands fringed by emerald palms and twisted mangroves – and swim in the shallow turquoise seas bedded with rainbow coral reefs. The air is scented with cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg and there’s a rich cultural past and history of spice traders from India and Indonesia.

Scenic spices

Sunset dhow cruise

Spice tour
