Lemon Grass add-on: In full
Finish your safari holiday with a fantastic 6 night stay in one of the more untouched holiday destinations in Tanzania: the Mafia Archipelago is visited by relatively few tourists it is quiet, relaxing and beautiful. First visit the much smaller Chole Island where the lodge and community work in partnership to promote tourism and benefit the local area and then the larger main island; before ending with a night in Dar to connect onto your flight back to London.
This trip includes flights from and back to Dar es Salaam, but no international flights. It is designed to add onto the end of one of our Tanzania safaris to create a great trip with two very separate parts: a bush safari and a beach break.
