Tanzania Wildlife And Hiking Safari From Zanzibar : It is feasible to visit Zanzibar and then go on a safari in Tanzania afterward. As more people reserve their beach vacations in Zanzibar, there is an increasing demand for Tanzania safaris that leave from Zanzibar Island. Even though Zanzibar is home to a wildlife sanctuary known as the Jozani forest, which is famous for housing endangered red colobus monkeys, it is clear that honeymooners are more drawn to Zanzibar for its gorgeous white sand beaches than for wildlife safaris.

It is imperative to link Zanzibar to Tanzania’s mainland, which is renowned for its iconic national parks like the Serengeti and Ngorongoro, which are home to the “big five” animals and the great wildebeest migration, respectively, since Zanzibar is not known for its wildlife safaris. Safaris that depart from Zanzibar usually take you to Tanzanian national parks on the mainland, where you can experience either the nearby Southern Tanzania Safari Circuit or the well-known Northern Tanzania Safari Circuit.

One of the most amazing safari experiences is a Tanzania safari from Zanzibar, where you can enjoy the beautiful, immaculate beaches of Zanzibar Island as well as Tanzania’s best game drives and wildlife safaris, in addition to cultural safari tours and hiking excursions. In Tanzania and Zanzibar, everyone might have an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime safari experience.

There are plenty of safari itineraries that take you through Tanzania and the island of Zanzibar, which will add an amazing and delightful element to your safari. The most highly recommended route starts in Tanzania and ends at the beaches of Zanzibar. Mount Kilimanjaro is an 8–9 day climb that can be done to kick off your safari in Tanzania. Following that, you can take game drives through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area or the Serengeti National Park. Lastly, we suggest that you relax on some of Zanzibar’s most beautiful beaches to cap off your trip.

The most important feature and advantage is that there are several ways to travel between Tanzania and Zanzibar Island that are available around-the-clock, including air and sea transportation, though flying is the best option when moving from one place to another.

Take a plane safari from Zanzibar to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.
Flying in over the Serengeti from Zanzibar allows you to have an aerial perspective of the adventure that lies beneath. As your plane approaches the Seronera airfield in the Serengeti National Park on Tanzania’s mainland, if the weather permits, you might get a chance to see some of the park’s resident species.

A driver and guide will be there to take you on a tour of the breathtaking surroundings of Serengeti National Park as soon as you arrive. Though you may not have time to see the entire Serengeti due to its vastness as a national park, any of these itineraries will allow you to traverse some difficult terrain and gain a comprehensive understanding of the area.

The views from above are definitely breathtaking. Within 30 minutes of aircraft embarkation, you will be driven to all that the Serengeti has to offer in a 44-safari vehicle with a pop-up roof. After that, the transfer car will come get you and take you back to the hotel. Since there will be animals everywhere you look, it is recommended that you pack a camera so you can snap some beautiful photos.

You’ll walk on after stopping for lunch at a picnic area and stretching your legs in the afternoon. You will be returned to the airport in the late afternoon following lunch, where you can take a flight directly to Arusha or to Zanzibar.

Safari to the Selous Game Reserve from Zanzibar.
Taking up five thousand square kilometres, Selous is Africa’s largest game reserve and the second largest conservation area on the continent. It is without a doubt four times bigger than the Serengeti. Selous is an especially unique location to visit while in Tanzania because it’s one of the least frequented parks in Africa and one of the most isolated wildlife reserves.
This game reserve has a greater species variety and species richness than other Miombo woodland areas. Counting over 2,100 plants, it is thought that there are more in the remote southern woodlands.

Owing to the existence of globally noteworthy populations of African elephants, black rhinoceroses, and wild dogs, this reserve safeguards an exceptional diversity of large mammals. It also boasts one of the largest known populations of hippopotamuses and buffalo worldwide.
Significant populations of sable antelope, Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, greater kudu, eland, and Nyassa wildebeest coexist with ungulates. There are 350 species of birds, including the rare Udzungwa woodland partridge and the rufous-winged sunbird, and a good number of Nile crocodiles. Because of its high species diversity and density, the Selous Game Reserve is a remarkable natural habitat for in-situ conservation of biological diversity.
