This Seminole Scuba Safari and diving trip will take you on game drives through some of the most famous parks in Tanzania; Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti. In Tarangire you can expect large herds of elephants and buffalo along with other animal and bird sightings. Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken caldera in the world, raising 2286 meters above sea level, with walls rising up to 610 meters from the crater floor, Ngorongoro is known for having the most densely packed concentration of wildlife in Africa. Serengeti in the Masai language means “endless plains” which describes the 6000 square mile park perfectly. The variety of wildlife in the Serengeti is endless, and on your game drives you should see the ‘Big Five’ (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) as well as huge herds of zebra and wildebeest.
After an eventful safari we will board our planes to Arusha and then on to Zanzibar before we get settled on the south-east coast of the island and enjoy a weeks’ worth of diving in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. During our stay in Zanzibar we will have an opportunity to visit the Unesco World heritage site Stone Town and take in some amazing diving. On our latest trip we saw many things such as; Turtles, Grouper, Frogfish, Nudibranchs, Big Schools of fish, Rays, Napoleon Wrasse and Dolphins. Feel free to check out more images from our last trip in Pauls Africa 2017 Album

Your journey begins with a short overnight in the Nairobi National Park with an early breakfast followed by a plane ride to the Ol Pejeta conservancy. You will be met at the airstrip and transferred to Porini Rhino Camp where you will stay 2 nights. This 90,000-acre wildlife conservancy is situated between the foot hills of the Aberdares and the magnificent snowcapped Mount Kenya. Ol Pejeta boasts an astounding variety of animals including the non-indigenous chimpanzees and the big 5 (the endangered black rhino, leopard, elephant, buffalo and lion). The combination of amazing wildlife and stunning views across the open plains of Ol Pejeta guarantees an unforgettable safari experience.
After a flight to Maasai Mara we will be transferred to the Porini Lion camp located on the banks the Ntiakatiak River. We will call the camp our home for three nights. Porini Lion Camp is in the exclusive 20,000 acre Olare Orok Conservancy. This expansive conservancy, which borders the Maasai Mara Game Reserve is home to an abundance of animals including the Big Cats for which the Mara is famous. The 1,700-square kilometer Maasai Mara Game Reserve is one of the world's richest wildlife sanctuaries and shares the same ecosystem as its neighbor - the Serengeti National Park. Virtually every common species of East African wildlife may be seen here including elephants, the legendary black-maned lions, leopard, cheetah, giraffes, wildebeests, buffalo, wart hogs, zebras, gazelles, topi, hyena, ostrich, hippos, baboons and many others. There are more than two million animals in the Mara during the annual wildebeest migration which streams past the lodge. An extraordinary variety of birdlife is also known to the immediate area.
From Maasai Mara we will board a plane to Nairobi and continue to the island of Zanzibar. After checking in at Breezes Beach Club and Spa (a family owned resort on the east coast) we will enjoy 7 nights relaxing on the powder white sands
looking out at the azure clear waters of the Indian Ocean. The diving in Zanzibar is some of the most exotic we have experienced. The untouched coral and abundance of sea life are appealing to even the most seasoned of divers. There are also options to do local tours, go shopping, arrange some special services at the Frangipani Spa and much more.
Come join us and fall in love with Africa as we did many years ago!
