Handcrafted to celebrate wildlife diversity, this two-week safari offers a very authentic journey through East African nature. You will track chimpanzees in remote Congo Basin forests, discover the Serengeti’s wildebeest herds, snorkel around Zanzibar, and safari on the majestic Ruaha savannah. This is not a classic safari itinerary to Tanzania and Kenya. The focus of this safari is on rare nature and unique wildlife, specifically of the kind that cannot be experienced outside East Africa.
Kendwa – Open Beaches and Laid-Back Hours
Kendwa is as laid-back as anywhere along the Indian Ocean. Its long white beach is backdropped by squat cliffs and indigenous forest. Dunes rise in some places, and when walking upon them, it can seem like you are on a deserted island. You can look out from your lodge to witness the Indian Ocean as it glistens blue. In fact, you can look out from anywhere in Kendwa, and there will not be much other than the ocean. Nearby Nungwe is a more popular destination in the north of Zanzibar. Kendwa’s beach is contiguous with Nungwe’s, but there are fewer resorts and far fewer people. It is a more exclusive base for exploring Zanzibar’s marine life, and after an airport transfer, today will be at your leisure. There are some local snorkeling spots that can be accessed directly from the beach.
