One of our favourite itineraries. You will be on safari good and proper. You will see all Tanzania has to offer from close communities to wide open spaces and sandy shores. The drive up to the Serengeti really does include some of the world’s best wonders and should be on everyone’s bucket list. Pongwe Beach might be a little rustic but excudes charm and lies on the best beach on the island.
