Arrive in Dar es Salaam and transfer to Nyerere National Park, for the bigins of our 12-day Tanzania family Safari and Beach. Located around a 45-minute flight from Tanzania’s bustling capital in the south. Your home for the next few nights will be the effortlessly stylish Siwandu Camp on the banks of Lake Nzerakera where luxury tented suites offer that back-to-nature feel, but with all the comforts of an exceptional safari experience. A family tented suite offers interconnected rooms, which is especially important for children as the camp is not fenced and can be home to all manner of wildlife by night.
Nyerere National Park is a true haven for safari-goers of an adventurous persuasion. Three times the size of South Africa’s iconic Kruger National Park and teeming with Africa’s largest and most undisturbed wildlife populations, it makes for an unrivalled safari experience. On safari in Nyerere, you are unlikely to encounter other tourists, making for a peaceful and authentic experience. Children will enjoy the varied game activities and wildlife they will see as a result of its remarkable topography, from boat rides on the river to game drives in open-sided vehicles. Visiting in the dry season (July-October) is ideal, as a remarkable density of game congregates around the water sources, making for captivating and frequent game spotting that keeps kids engaged.
This morning after an early activity, you will be transfer to the airstrip for your flight to Ruaha, a flight of around 1 and a half hours. Contrast the lush and aqueous landscape of Nyerere with Ruaha’s comparatively more desert-like conditions, home to savannah flats, rocky outcrops and surreal baobab trees. Ruaha National Park can also boast Tanzania’s largest elephant population—an enduring game favourite amongst adults and youngsters alike.
Your destination is the luxury Ikuka Safari Camp, perched on top of an escarpment in the heart of the park, the lodge has spectacular views. The family banda can house up to five and children over the age of seven are welcome at the camp.
Twice daily activities are included during your stay and you will focus mostly on game drives in open-sided vehicles. However, walking safaris are also possible for those over 16. Wildlife viewing is fantastic in this park including healthy population of lions, elephants, leopards and crocodiles, families will be in their element.
After the best part of a week on safari, time to unwind at the beach is most certainly in order. You will be transfer to the airstrip in time for your internal flight to Zanzibar. It is a beautiful flight especially as you near Zanzibar and glimpse the azure waters lapping at the island.
Upon arrival at Zanzibar, you will be met by a driver and transported to Baraza Resort & Spa where you stay for the next five nights on an all-inclusive basis in a Two-Bedroom Villa. From the airport, it is a drive of around an hour to the Michamvi Peninsula on the eastern coast of the island to the all-inclusive resort which is located in beautiful gardens along a long stretch of white sandy beach.
For families, we recommend either a Garden View Villa or upgrading to a Sultan’s Sea Facing Villa, each complete with two bedrooms. As well as ideal accommodation options, Baraza has many amenities which make it one of the best family-friendly options on the island. There is a stunning sandy beach, sheltered lagoon, swimming pool, gardens, a water sports centre and a children’s club. Baby sitting and child minding are also available. Families can recline in paradise, lounge by the infinity pool, snorkel on pristine reefs, or simply enjoy a novel on the beach as gentle sea breezes flit across the pages, on one of Tanzania’s stunning Spice Islands.
Arriving at the edge of the crater, we have our first glimpse of what awaits us the following day. Dinner and Overnight at the lodge.
