Tanzania Itineraries

Long weekend

It takes at least eighteen hours to get to East Africa from the U.S., but long weekends can be arranged from Europe, which has overnight flights to Nairobi from several cities. From Nairobi, it’s a spectacular 45-minute flight to Masai Mara, where you’ll arrive in time for a late-day game drive. Enjoy two game drives for the next two days. On the last day, enjoy a morning game drive before returning to Nairobi for your return flight.

One week

Spend 1 night in Kampala before catching an early morning flight to Bwindi, where you’ll track one of three wild gorilla families. Spend 2 nights at the spare but romantic Bwindi Resort. Fly to Queen Elizabeth National Park for 2 days of game drives. Fly back to Entebbe and take a 2-hour drive along the shores of Lake Victoria to Jinja, the legendary source of the Nile and a lively resort with whitewater rafting and kayaking. Spend 2 nights there before returning to Entebbe for your flight home.

Two Weeks

For a classic two-week safari vacation, fly to Nairobi for 1 night before driving to Amboseli National Park for 2 nights; then drive into Tanzania, entering to the Serengeti region. Spend 2 nights at Ngorongoro Crater, 2 nights in the Serengeti National Park, and 2 nights in the Samburu Game Reserve. Head to the Masai Mara for 2 nights before returning to Nairobi. Take the 90-minute flight to Zanzibar and stay 2 nights before returning in time to catch your flight home.
