Combine the idyllic island of Zanzibar with a safari adventure in East Africa with our range of overland camping safaris, tailor-made holidays and beach breaks.
With pristine white sand beaches and the azure Indian Ocean, Zanzibar is a little slice of paradise, and has many stunning beach resorts including Kiwengwa on the east coast and Nungwi in the north. It also offers some of the best diving in the world, with lush coral reefs and a diverse range of sea life including dolphins, turtles, whale shark and manta-rays. Most of our trips to Zanzibar are part of longer overland safaris in East Africa, where we stop for a few days of R&R on this idyllic island. We also offer a 5-day beach break in Zanzibar and holidays combining the best of Tanzania's national park with a few days at the end in Zanzibar. Check out our tours departing in 2019 and 2020.

Excellent valued tour for people who have the time and prepared to rough it a bit to have a great experience.Guides were very knowledgeable and terrific to learn from. Cook and driver also had many tour years of knowledge. We were the oldest (63yrs) but still had a fun time and always felt looked after and safe.”
The tour overall is fantastic. It is a great way to have once in a lifetime experiences and see fabulous sights.
However, there are numerous early starts and long days in the truck that are not reflected by the trip notes. There are often times when the group want to stop and see more of the country through which we are travelling but this is not possible due to time and distance constraints.
The tour team were fantastic A little bit more advance notice and information would have been useful though”
We had such an amazing time on our 22 Day Overland Safari. It was the perfect way to get a taste of Eastern and Southern Africa in such a short space of time! If camping doesn't phase you then we'd highly recommend it! It's an adventure from start to finish and a great way to meet new people. We can't thank our guide, Hes, our driver, Steve and chef, Malinga for taking such great care of our group! A huge thanks to all at On The Go for everything too! Hazel and Andy”

Known as The Spice Island, no visit to Zanzibar would be complete without a visit to the spice plantations, a true delight for your senses.
