Over 500 species of birds have been recorded in the area, birds of prey, vultures, lovebirds, cranes, Bateleur and weavers. Nile Crocodiles, the largest crocodiles lie in wait in Grumet River Serengeti..

The Ngorongoro Crater is home to more than 30 000 protected animals. Known for its spectacular beauty and excellent game viewing, it is a truly unique and dramatically romantic safari destination in Africa. The Ngorongoro Crater, once a gigantic volcano, is the largest intact caldera in the world. Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth. Black rhino are protected within its rim, giant tusked elephants wander the forests, black-maned lions stalk the grasslands and flamingos crowd the soda lakes, and ideal romantic safari.

Day 14

Today you fly to Stone Town Zanzibar. Here you stay in a beautiful hotel downtown of this UNESCO world heritage site.

A walking tour is the only way to truly experience the town, which exists today much as it did in the years when Zanzibar, the Isle of Spices, was a great trading centre for spices, timber and slaves. The marketplace is alive with vendors who hawk their exotic wares in a multitude of languages, as many as the intense palate of colours which mark their fabrics, their spices, their intricately carved wood and other goods for sale. As you move away from the raucous of the market, the winding streets grow serene and mysterious, with their whitewashed houses and ornately carved wooden doors and balconies studded with brass.

Day 15

The morning begins with a sumptuous breakfast as you gaze over the Indian Ocean to the endless horizon. Today you will visit the Zanzibar Museum and the Old Fort. Lunch, relaxed and oh-so-luscious, and we proceed to spend the afternoon touring the plantations on the outskirts of town where cinnamon, cardamon and strong, flavourful Arabic coffees are grown. And, of course, we see the cloves, the gold of Zanzibar, the world’s finest and most desired spice, grown here in the very centre of the Spice Islands.

Day 16
