Itinerary Description by Day

Day 1: Stone town and spice tour

This introductory guided tour of Zanzibar provides living evidence of a rich cultural heritage, where Arabs, Indians, Persians, and European influence blended with local African tradition. Historic buildings with elaborately carved wooden doors shaded by balconies, loggias, and verandas line the narrow winding alleys. Visit to The Central Fresh Market, Former Slave Market(Dungeons, Sculptures and the Church) Old German Consulate, The Africa House (former English Gentlemen Club), Tip-Tip House, Old British Consulate, Orphanage Home, Old Fort, Forodhani Garden, The House of Wonders, Sultan Palace (Museum), Custom House, Old Dispensary, Old Harbor, etc. Takes 3hrs

I prefer the Government spice farm; drop off for a walk from the plot to the plot which grows spices, fruits, and some veggies. (Dig, pick, taste, and smell some roots, leaves, fruits, and barks of different spices) then guessing exactly what you see, sense and experience. Drinking of tea follows such as masala, lemongrass, and vanilla all these come with sweet Zanzibar peanut brittles. Watching a coconut climber is an ingredient of a tour (Drink some young coconuts n taste all seasonal fruits. It takes 3 hours

Day 2: Prison Island and Jozani forest

Prison/Tortoises Island and Snorkeling: It’s about 30 minutes crossing over from Stone town to Northwest, the Island has an amazing scenario for the photographers, watching the giant/baby tortoises as well as visiting the Prison – building which was planned becoming as a prison but did not work out in ancient time. Includes entree fee, boat, picnic lunch, and snorkeling gear (in case clients like to snorkel) .

Jozani Forest Red (colobus monkeys):

It takes 35 minutes for a car drive heading down South/East of the Island. Visiting the rain forest, walking on the mangrove swamp bridge for having a chance to hear lots about the species of mangroves available, and seeing the red colobus monkeys which said “endemic” to be only found on this Island. It’s all about flora and fauna. Takes 3hrs

Day 3 : Safari Blue,

Safari Blue:

After breakfast drives all the way southwest of the Island to the fishing village of Fumba. Briefing on the day’s excursion – you will then board the dhows n set off searching the Dolphins (85% chance). The species frequently found at Menai Bay are Spinner and Bottlenose dolphins. Swim with them as long as they stay close to the boat. You will then go on to one of the selected snorkeling areas, while accompanied by a snorkeling guide to show you points of interest and to assist the beginners. You will then ride onto another island or sandbank for lunch. Lunch is a traditional Zanzibar meal and typically includes a selection of BBQ fish, rice, lentils, and fish curry. Mineral water and bottled soft drinks are available throughout the day. You will spend the remainder of the afternoon, relaxing, swimming, or snorkeling. Return to Fumba by sail, if winds permit; setting off around 15h30 in your mini-vans and transferring back to your hotel.

Day 4 Dolphine Tour (Mnemba +Aquarium boose or sunset cruise

 Dolphin Tour

Heading up north is seventy minutes maximum for a car drive from Stone town. It includes transfers, boats, swimming gear, meals, and marine conservation fees. We also recommend clients from Stone town leave at six. The late departure the less chance to see the dolphins cause the water temperature will become warmer. Not only that but also the boat increments cause the dolphins scare so not much comfortable for both sides. Great snorkeling is done along the Atoll where you can see beautiful corals and countless species of fish such as angel ones, zebra, lions, Saladin’s, trumpets, and seafood platter served with chips and rice plus coconut curry.  (optional launch)

Sunset Cruise or Booze Cruise

Either a sunset cruise or a booze Cruise can be done depending on the type of pax on board we will start during the evening hours along the beach with the boat all the way within the ocean till sunset we will have drinks for refreshment and additional traditional and local music/dance with optional get together and goodby dinner in the evening.

Excellent Safari My wife and I have been on 3 safaris and we were very happy with our experience organized by Serengeti Sons Safaris. The tour coordinator, Grace, and our driver, Simon, made every effort to meet our needs. We booked a custom 6 day safari and saw a huge variety of animals and birds. Simon was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and dealt with some very difficult, muddy driving to ensure that we had the best wildlife views possible. Simon also had a strong photographic sense which helped us find the best viewing locations. Accommodation was excellent and provided some interesting variety. We would strongly recommend Serengeti Sons as a responsive, price competitive safari provider.

The Serengeti Experience - A worthwhile Experience I have visited many parks like the Kruger Park in South Africa and the Akagera ParK in Rwanda, but the Serengeti Experience was out of this world. Among other attractions, I was able to see 4 of the 'Big Five' (the lion, the leopard, the buffalo and the elephant) in one game drive within two hours. Another major attractions was seeing the lions mating and stalking (in an ambush for) a prey. I am planning seriously to witness the migration in another visit to the Serengeti.

A wonderful safari experience with Serengeti Sons We (2 persons) booked a 7 day Safari with Serengeti Sons quite to Tarangyre, Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Lake Manyara. They managed to organise a most wonderful trip, really tailored to what we liked: as much walking as possible and staying most closely to nature as possible. It was even greater than we had expected - nature, accomodation, organisation etc. Specials thanks to their flexibility since we booked with only about 10 days in advance!!! Highly recommended...

Safari Probably one of the best trips I have ever taken. George our tour guide was amazing. Highly recommend him. If it wasn’t for him, I don’t think we would’ve had the same experience. George is like the unofficial president of Tanzania. He knew everyone there and he was always a phone call away from helping us find whatever animals we wanted to see. I highly recommend Serengeti Sons.

Great experience Our safari tour with Serengeti Sons was a great experience. Before the actual trip, Grace proved very reactive and she really went to a great deal of trouble for us when we lost 3 our 4 pieces of our luggage on the plane. Jonas, our driver, was quite experienced and knowledgeable, and always keen on learning more about birds. We felt safe with him and he made it a point of honour to keep the car clean. He had a real knack to find animals : we will never forget how he managed to be in the best spot to introduce us to a magnificent leopard. The food was excellent. Thanks again for such a great experience.

Book with Serengeti Sons Safaris From the moment we began communicating with Quintin his goal was to determine what kind of experience we were looking for.This is tough when it's your first time.He took the time to get to know us and then customized a Safari and Zanzibar beach vacation.We wanted a little of everything and were willing to scrimp on some things so that we could splurge on others. Quintin's extensive knowledge and expertise delivered a package we loved. Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Lake Victoria, Ngoronogoro and then off to Zanzibar to relax on the beach. Grace in the office couldn't have chosen a better guide for us, George, who met us at the airport with his big beautiful smile and was the perfect match. He was transformed from guide to FRIEND! We had a range of accommodation experiences, again to fit our budget, that delivered the basics and then others that went above and beyond, our favorite, that we truly didn't want to leave, was the Serengeti Acacia Central Camp. The staff were exceptional, the ambiance absolutely delightful and they deserve the tips. Our 5 star experience was Acacia Farm Lodge - fabulous! The thing about Safari is that you can never be guaranteed what you see but our guide, George, had eagle eyes at spotting animals.How he found that leopard in the tree still baffles us. George understands customer service and we are grateful to have been blessed to experience his hospitality. He kept his Land Cruiser exceptionally clean (we joked about how we had our daily massage with all the bumpy roads) he shared his wealth of knowledge about the animals and surrounding areas while quietly and enthusiastically fulfilling our every request. He's a good man! We chose to have a private experience rather than be in a group which worked wonderfully for us. We could stay longer where we wanted and move on at any time without sacrificing getting to know fellow travelers at the end of the day for dinner and socializing. We know of others that have flown around Africa to see a wider variety of parks but honestly the Serengeti region has it all, there is no need to go elsewhere. Our best animal experience - watching(and filming)a lioness hunt and take down a zebra which she then shared with her pack of 16. Oh by the way - if you're wondering whether the financial investment is worth it - it is the trip of a lifetime. Tip where warranted. Rest assured that OUR experience leaves us eager to recommend Serengeti Sons Safari. A company with integrity.

Wonderful experience. Serengeti Sons were a terrific experience. My driver Simon was experienced and knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. We logged a few miles together on some rough roads and survived and laughed through most of it! Our accommodations were excellent, once out of Arusha, and our tent camp experience will remain a highlight of my visit to Africa. I saw my first leopard and cheetah in the Serengeti which was an experience to remember! Overall Serengeti Sons took wonderful care of me and I felt like I was in good hands.
