Our travel proposal
Welcome to Tanzania! Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), you will be welcomed by your driver. Together you transfer to Arusha from where you will continue by plane (around 2 hours flight) or by Jeep to Pangani (around 8 hours drive). Alternatively, you can directly arrive in Tanga or Pangani. In any case, one of our partners will already be awaiting you upon arrival.
Together you continue to The Tides Lodge, located right by Ushongo Beach. After you have checked in, the rest of the day is at your free disposal and can be used for exploring the place or relaxing. In any case, make sure to be back for dinner, because you do not want to miss Sophia’s excellent cooking skills!
Good morning, it is 10:00am and after your big breakfast you will discover the nearby-located fishing villages by foot. Samir will be your companion and guide you along the coast. The afternoon is at your free disposal and we recommend relaxing by the white sandy beach.
You can take it easy and start your day any time you like (again, we recommend not missing out on your breakfast prepared by Sophia!). Get ready for some adventure in the afternoon, however!
Around 2pm you leave The Tides Lodge to transfer by boat to Maziwe Island. The ride takes about 45 minutes and brings you to an idyllic sandbank which is surrounded by coral reefs. You do not have to worry about bringing your own snorkeling equipment. The Tides Lodge team will take care of you so that you can fully focus on discovering the underwater world!
After having spent a relaxing afternoon on the island and having enjoyed a nice picnic, you return to The Tides Lodge in the early evening for dinner and overnight.
Today is entirely at your free disposal and we recommend enjoying the moments which make you feel like Robinson Crusoe thanks to this hidden gem. Breakfast and dinner are included in your stay for your comfort.
After an early breakfast, you cross the Indian Ocean! You can do so either by boat or by propeller-driven airplane. Today’s destination: Nungwi, located in the north of Zanzibar.
After arrival in the late morning you will have plenty of time to enjoy the white sandy beaches and bright blue water of the Indian Ocean. Nungwi is nice to visit and you will have the occasion to discover the village known for making dhows (traditional sailing boats used to sail the Indian Ocean) and the aquarium. After having spent the day on Zanzibar’s northern coast you return to The Tides Lodge for dinner and overnight. You can optionally add another day in Nungwi and return to Ushongo Beach the following day.
After a good night’s sleep and after finishing breakfast, you will check out of The Tides Lodge. If you have further activities planned, you can continue your individual travel program accordingly. Alternatively, your driver will drive you to the airport at the appropriate time and you will travel home.
You can optionally add days to relax on the white sandy beaches of Pangani. If you would like to skip any activity or only relax on the beach, please let us know. In case you would like to add other activities such as a safari in the nearby located national parks and visit the Usambara Mountains, or to combine your stay in Pangani with one of our Zanzibar tours, please do not hesitate to contact us.
