Most of the African safari holidays are a combination of safari and beach time to experience both, the adventurous wildlife part and the laid-back beach resort part. The Tanzania itinerary Bush & Coast is an unusual example of such a combination of safari and beach. It combines the Serengeti and Saadani, which is by itself a safari destination with a beach.
Guests will stay for the first 4 days at Kusini in the Serengeti. This will give time to spot the Big Five and to enjoy extended game drives on the Great Plains of this amazing national park in Tanzania. The camp is at a remote and private location within the Serengeti, offering exceptional and essentially private game viewing.
A light aircraft transfer will bring the guests to their next safari destination right at the beach in Saadani National Park. Saadani National Park is one of the only remaining protected coastal areas in Africa. The park covers 1100 square kilometers and is the only wildlife sanctuary in Tanzania bordering the ocean and the only place in East Africa that offers safari and beach in one location.
For those who would like to extend with a few more days on the beach, Zanzibar is only a very short flight away with many beach resorts to choose from. This 8-day African safari itinerary is an ideal getaway for a short break and with a Zanzibar extension ideal for those with more time on their hands.
