Save The Date

Our trips are first-come, first-served - and following our previous adventures, I know that you won’t want to miss out on this one!

Stone Town

This historical town is one of the few remaining ancient towns on the African continent. Prepare for scents of sea and spices and beautifully carved doorways as you wander through this museum-like slice of history.

Paje

This laid-back, tropical village runs along the beautiful Zanzibari seafront, it boasts a 20km beach and is well-known for kitesurfing, beautiful sunset views and relaxing with a fresh coconut in hand. Expect sunset bonfires, sunrise yoga sessions and hammock naps in this stunning part of Zanzibar.

Nungwi

A vibrant and lively beach town that is bursting with beautiful resorts, restaurants and plenty of sunset spots to enjoy a cocktail or two. Head down to the beach for fresh seafood, breathtaking Instagrammable views and make the most of this being the perfect springboard into all of the water activities you can imagine.

*Optional Trip Extension (Includes safari!!!)

 

Mikumi National Park

We will be whisking you away on a small plane to mainland Tanzania where you will get to experience one of the most insane bucket list experiences yet! A beautiful African safari complete with multiple game drives in a comfortable open-sided 4X4 vehicle and our expert local guide who will be on the lookout for us and you’ll get a chance to spot buffaloes, giraffes, elephants, lions, pythons, zebras, leopards, crocodiles and many more incredible animals in the wild. Bucket list GOALS! Lunch will be served deep in the Mikumi National Park in a shaded spot near a watering hole, where you can watch animals come to drink. In the late afternoon, you'll head back to the airstrip and return to Zanzibar in time for a vibrant and colourful sunset.

Fumba Town

Step into the fastest-growing town in Zanzibar. Here you will find the most modern properties, rooftops and developments on the entire island. You are a stone’s throw away from Stone Town where you can watch the famous ‘Port Jumpers’ show of their moves as they dive with style into the sea.

Safari Blue

Zanzibar’s most talked-about adventure. There’s even wildlife to see underwater in the islands surrounding Archipelago. This popular full-day boat tour in Zanzibar explores the marine life of the Indian Ocean and stops at some of the best snorkelling spots along the coast where you will spot colourful fish, coral reefs, and other underwater wildlife. You will snorkel in the warm Indian Ocean, relax on a secluded sandbank and continue into the mangrove forest, where you can spot even more local wildlife like birds, monkeys, and wild dolphins.

wanna find out what it's really like to travel with us?

Ok, I know what you're thinking!

"I don't know how I feel about travelling with a bunch of strangers!" 

...And you wouldn't be the first to have that question

so let's see if this is for you...

This all started as a result of social media connections.

Real people with high vibes and BIG bucket lists who drooled over Pinterest boards of faraway destinations and were itching to meet other travel-inspired wanderlusters!

Sharing my travels online would lead to comments like "Take me with you!" and "Can I be your new travel buddy?" So eventually (after a few years of dreaming), I took their word for it!

 

Last year I finally opened up the vault to my travel-planning secrets and whisked a bunch of Travel Addicts on my debut group adventure. (And the demand got even higher!)

But don't take it from me. Hear first-hand from my trip guests and find out more about how travelling with a group of new travel besties could be your best adventure yet!
