Manyara National Park occupies a vast area, spread over 330 square kilometers, and has a lake covering 200 square kilometers of this area. Explore the landscape and the rich flora and fauna at the park. Marvel at the African elephant, a zebra, or a majestic cheetah in pursuit of prey.

Enjoy some bird watching and catch cormorants and storks in flight. The months between July and October mark the dry season that is ideal for spotting mammals. Visit between November and June for birdwatching.

Drive down to the Ngorongoro Crater floor, with some of the most fertile and richest grazing grounds in Africa that has in turn engendered one of the highest density of top predators in the continent! Expect some of the best game viewing opportunities here, with herds of zebras, wildebeests, large prides of lions, hyenas and rhinos, among many more animals and birds. Experience breath-taking sightings of massive herds of wildlife set against the volcanic crater and surrounding highlands of Ngorongoro.

Take a leisurely, three hour long walk through the winding streets of the old city, admiring the heritage buildings, distinctive architecture and places of interest. Walk over to the ramparts of the Old Fort facing the waterfront. It was built by the Arabs in the 17th Century when they took over the island from the Portuguese. Visit the imposing Beit el-Sahel or Palace Museum nearby, reconstructed from the ruins of Sultan Seyyid Said’s 19th Century royal residence. Stop by East Africa’s first Anglican Cathedral and the formal Forodhani Gardens to get a taste of the district. Amble along the historic alleyways, passing by latticed balconies and carved doorways from another era! Shop for spices and exquisite artifacts at Zanzibar’s famed bazaars, bargaining to your heart’s content.

Zanzibar Night Market
Discover the vibrant Zanzibar Night Market! Watch the marvel of the transformation of this part of Zanzibar from a peaceful, slow paced area by day into a busy market by night. After sunset, the once quiet streets at the heart of Stone Town transform into a culinary playground. Chefs set up countless rows of food tables as hundreds of people stream in to add to the marvel. The tables are laden with Zanzibari pizza, huge falafels, sugar cane juice, enormous samosas, coconut bread, fresh seafood skewers and crepes laden with chocolate syrup. Join in the activities, sampling various mouth watering delicacies and get to hear of the inspiring stories behind the creative cuisine. Here, culture meets history, as you experience the heritage of Zanzibar as a bustling trading hub through its vibrant, delicious cuisine.
