A relaxing river boat trip will also allow a glimpse of hippos and crocodiles! You’ll also go to a watch tower to observe animals at night. The variety of viewing opportunities makes this trip fantastic!
A real highlight of this trip is getting close to the elephant conservation project, meeting the collaring team, and playing your part tracking the animals and monitoring their behaviour. Not only this, if you travel during July and September you may be lucky enough to witness the green turtle hatching on the beach and may be asked to help them back to the safety of the Ocean.
After viewing all the wildlife you’ll have an opportunity to relax in Zanzibar. This exotic 'Spice Island' is located a short distance off the coast of Tanzania. Here you’ll explore the atmospheric splendour of Stone Town, walking through its winding streets and just chilling out.
