Tanzania

Cross Africa & Co. just adores Tanzania. There is anticipation around every corner as you wait for the next magnificent landscape or wildlife encounter to unfold before your eyes. This really is a top destination in the world, and if you are lucky enough to see the migration, which is never a guarantee, then this will truly be at the top of the list for your most memorable holiday. Everything you have heard about Africa becomes reality when you visit Tanzania.

A truly “Out of Africa” experience

  • Witness the great migration of wildebeest and zebra in the Serengeti National Park
  • Take a stroll through the winding streets and alleyways of Stonetown – a UNESCO world Heritage site for its Arab and colonial architecture
  • Take a trip to Ngorongoro Crater, the largest in tact volcanic caldera in the world. Teeming with game, you will also find the Olduvai Gorge, a fault line that has eroded away to reveal fossils that provide the most continuous record of human evolution
  • Watch the sun rise as you take a romantic balloon ride over the plains of the Serengeti
  • Photograph the magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro from the foot of the mountain, or for the more adventurous a trek can be arranged to the summit
  • Visit Orkeeswa School in Orkeeswa Village, just outside of Arusha, a Masai school that Cross Africa & Co. supports (see our Pay it Forward page)
  • See huge flocks of Flamingos at Lake Manyara National Park, also an ideal area for canoe safaris
  • Spot the endangered Red Colobus Monkey in the Jozani Forest
  • Tag in a beach holiday to Zanzibar. This is a must when going on safari… finish off with a few relaxing days on an island in the Indian Ocean
  • Take a stroll through the winding streets and alleyways of Stonetown – a UNESCO world Heritage site for its Arab and colonial architecture. We also recommend you try some of the local seafood cuisine at the night market
  • Catch a dhow to Prison Island to see the Giant Aldabra Tortoise, then return to your villa on Zanzibar Island for sundowners.
