Zanzibar Island

Zanzibar Island, the “Spice Island,” is, in fact, more than an “island” it is an archipelago of stunning tropical Indian Ocean islands.

Easily accessible and a total paradise – don’t delay – treat yourself and go to Zanzibar now! You will not regret it!

An absolute paradise; consisting of many small islands and two larger ones; Unguja (the main island and referred to as Zanzibar) and Pemba Island.

Zanzibar; this most historic of island paradises; full of atmosphere, spice plantations, and beautiful beaches and just a short hop from the mainland of either Tanzania or Kenya. Think beautiful, clear, turquoise waters, patches of reefs, miles of palm-tree fringed white sandy beaches with a heady mix of Swahili and Arabic culture and history.

Rwanda Bisate Lodge Cultural Experiences


Rwanda is a country of contrasts, with lush green mountains, pristine lakes and beautiful valleys. The Volcanoes National Park is a rainforest haven and one of Africa’s most biodiverse regions, but, of course, its most celebrated wild mammal is the iconic, critically endangered mountain gorilla.

Rwanda’s absolute highlight is access to gorilla trekking and spending time with the highly endangered mountain gorillas. It is one of only three countries where you can currently do this – the other two being Uganda and the Congo.

Affectionately known as the ‘Land of a Thousand Hills’, a safari in Rwanda is an unforgettable African experience. With its unique wildlife, stunning landscapes and rich culture, Rwanda is a destination not to be missed.

Kenya Safari Requirements


Kenya offers an authentic safari experience in a vastly diverse landscape, abundant wildlife and mindful cultural experiences.

Kenya offers fantastic diversity for a safari holiday experience and is perfect for small groups and family vacations. From unimaginable luxury offering hot-air ballooning and helicopter excursions to authentic and exhilarating bush camps in wilderness zones focussing on walking safaris and fly-camping for true-wilderness experiences. 

Like the Serengeti in Tanzania, Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve becomes part of the 'great migration', a never-ending circle of life followed by over a million animals. The infamous river crossings, with giant scavenging crocodiles and countless wildebeest charging across the Mara Rivers steep banks into the perilous waters below, are the most prominent happenings associated with this mind-blowing event.

Tanzania with Safari Guru - Zebra by Deon De Villiers


In a storybook setting, Tanzania offers an abundance of wildlife second to none on the African continent. It is home to the "great migration", a phenomenal spectacle of a million-plus herbivores continuing their search for palatable grasses, which in turn benefits and supports an impressive predator population.

Tanzania is the home to several bucket list destinations, such as the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, the inspiring Serengeti, the untamed wilderness of Selous Game Reserve, now renamed as Nyerere National Park, the stunning islands of Zanzibar and, of course, the Pinnacle of the country, the nineteen thousand plus feet iconic Mount Kilimanjaro.

With so much on offer and much to see and do, choosing the correct safari camps, luxury lodges, and travel logistics management is vital when planning a Tanzanian safari.
