Frequently Asked Questions

    • If I am dropped off at the last stop in Tanzania, how do I get to Zanzibar?

      There are several ways to get to Zanzibar from Arusha, you can take a taxi and a ferry or take a flight. We can definitely check with the tour operator if they have any private means of transportation to get you to Zanzibar.

    • When is the best time to view the migration?

      The prime time to visit the Serengeti in Tanzania is usually regarded as being from late November through to March when the big herds of wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelle and zebra head on to the southern plains of the Serengeti.

      To get the best viewing on the other hand in Kenya's Masai Mara July through to September are usually regarded as the best months.
