From island life to big game safaris, East Africa kindles images of a unique family adventure. Over 12 days, you will lounge on beaches, come face to face with elephant herds, learn how to track animals, and meet with tribal Masai families. From recreating Lion King movie scenes to watching wildebeest gallop past you, this family safari is imbued with the intimate experiences that are possible in Zanzibar, Tanzania, and Kenya.
Dongwe – Spacious White Sand and Tropical Waters
Zanzibar is serene. Palms send their iconic shadows across the sand each morning, the indigenous forest provides a green backdrop to a white beach, and at low tide, you can wade through almost a mile of knee-deep tropical water. Even at high tide, these waters are sheltered and safe for swimming. You will experience space here, and Zanzibar is a relatively undeveloped island, especially compared to others in the Indian Ocean. Dongwe is on the island’s undeveloped Eastern Coast, which is where small resorts are spread along a beach that can never seem to end. After being met at Zanzibar’s international airport, you will be transferred to the resort for the first of four nights.
