Zanzibar makes vacations seamless for senior travelers with tropical lagoons, quiet beaches, cultural experiences, and an underwater suite. The Serengeti provides endless safari excitement with wildebeest herds, lion prides, spotted cats and zebra stripes. Split across four exotic destinations, this handcrafted tour offers an eclectic, island experience that is followed by a relaxed, big game safari. So, settle into island bliss before surrounding yourself with the great wildebeest migration.
Pingwe – Settling into a Quiet Beach Escape
From a beachside bungalow, you will gaze out across the ocean. The waters here are soft and peaceful, glistening through azure and emerald colors as the sun crosses the sky. Sometimes you can hear the waves, but you never really see them. They will crash against a coral wall some mile out, turning the beachside waters into a lagoon. It can feel like you are wading or swimming in a bath, such as temperature and lack of currents. At high tide, the waters may be a little high for swimming, but during all other times, this will be a very safe place to float and swim, whatever your age.
Another highlight of the eastern coast is the picture that will be created at low tide. The ocean will recede, and you will be able to walk across water that is ankle to knee deep. Coral outcrops will stud the water and will be populated by swarms of tropical fish, so at certain times of day, you can experience diverse marine life without needing to put on a snorkel. The other first impression there will be tranquility. This side of the island is undeveloped and little will break the silence. So, take off your shoes, settle into the slow Zanzibari rhythm, and find yourself in a tropical paradise. There will be time to do things on the island, but all that will be saved for later.
