Culture & Historical Tours
Due to its colourful and ancient past Tanzania has many cultural and historic attractions that never fail to impress. A cultural walk in Mto Wa Mbu (Mosquito Village) near Lake Manyara takes you to the waterfall on the Great Rift Valley Wall and/or foothills of Mt. Meru Village close to Arusha Town.    

Visit a Maasai Manyatta and meet these proud herdsman/warriors in their traditional way of living. A unique lifestyle not to be missed.
  
The Hunter gatherer Hadzabe tribe in Lake Eyasi, and the Datoga people of Mangola live in a simple, traditional manner which has remained unchanged over centuries.
                       
Historical Sites
Rock Paintings go back over two millennia and extend over an area of approximately 2336 sq kms. The most extensive sites are to be found at Kondoa Irangi. Many of the paintings reflect the spirituality of Stone Age man.

Oldupai Gorge
The ‘Cradle of Mankind’ has yielded abundant fossil material dating back at least two million years. It was here (1959) that Mary and Louis Leakey discovered the remains of Nutcracker Man. Nearby, in Laitoli, (1979) Mary Leakey discovered the footprints of hominids which are estimated to be over three million years old. On leaving the interesting museum, your driver guide will show you the mysterious shifting sands.  

Geological Tours
Tanzania is rich in precious gems, not least of which is the exquisite blue Tanzanite which is found nowhere else in the world. Another treasure is the Tanzanian Ruby – a glowing red stone of rare appeal. A visit to Mererani Tanzanite Mines and Longido Ruby Mines won’t fail to fascinate.  

Leisure Beach Holidays
Tanzania is not only about game viewing and hikes; it offers also incredible beaches, luxurious beach resorts and a fascinating history with eclectic architecture dating as far back as the original Arab settlers. Sunny Safaris encourage you to take some time to acquaint yourself with Tanzania’s marvels.   

Zanzibar
The aroma of cloves and other spices hangs in the air of this exquisite island which is still predominantly Islamic and has a wonderful market atmosphere. Paradise on Earth, the beaches are sun-drenched and the reefs ensure a profusion of marine life.

Pemba
'Al Jazeera Al Khadra' - the Green Island, together with Mafia and Zanzibar forms the spice islands archipelago. Not opened to foreigners until the mid-1980’s, Pemba is close to the occult and a centre for traditional medicine. The Ngezi forest is home to the Pemba Flying Fox, the biggest fruit bat in the world.    

Pangani
A former hub of the Arabic slave-trade this historic town is located on the shores of the Indian Ocean, at the mouth of the Pangani River (sets the barrier between the two, salt and sweet water). It remains an important centre of commerce as it is a significant producer of sisal, maize, and bananas.

Saadani National Park is the only park where the Bush meets the beach. Located along the cost line of the Indian ocean, the park contains a unique combination of terrestrial wildlife and marine, flora and fauna. Hence, it is one of the few parks in Africa where Big game has been strolling on the beach.

Commentary from our guests

  • 3 days game drive + 7 days walking safari in the Crater highlands, the whole team made it very special and exciting trip. You made our fist time in Africa very exciting and we are sure we’ll be back.
              Amie & Christian from Germany

  • We had a fantastic trip. A bit scary to sleep in a tent listening to the lions and bushpigs, but that’s part of fun. Charlie was the best chef and Ziggy led us to see the big five including 15 lions. We came close enough to have a male lion pee on the window.

              Absolutely amazing, thank you all!
              Love Enca & Stefan – Norway
