Expectations safari & beyond

Game Drives - Transit times

The Husna Safari & Beyond is a holistic experience crafted for the adventurous. The Safari adventure spans 14 days, with stays at multiple hotels and lodges, with 4-6-hour wildlife viewing drives across the scenic African savannas

The Safari adventure starts in the early morning, noted to be the best time to see the wildlife. With purpose built 4×4 vehicles, the uneven ruggedness of the Serengeti terrain is minimized. With comfortable seating for up to 7 persons, rest is well assured for the drives between lodges and wildlife sightings. The 4x4s offer multiple viewing windows and lift off roofs for fresh air and direct views. Drives between safaris parks can range from 2-4 hours

Being deep in the savanna, the Safari parks offer clean and well-maintained bathroom facilities, but may not have the modern style one would expect in other parts of the world. Bathroom breaks are taken at lunch and before leaving the game drive and returning to the lodge. 

Tours - Excursions - Local Attractions

Guided walking city tours allow the adventurer to experience the Arab, Portuguese, African and Indian heritage that forms the rich culture and the hustle and bustle of Tanzania and Zanzibar.

Moderate to light walking is required, and comfortable walking shoes are recommended.

Tours include frequent stops and last 3-5 hours.

The archipelago of Zanzibar is renowned for its idyllic beaches, and the clear, warm azure blue waters of the Indian Ocean, rich with its marine diversity and coral reefs. A perfect under-water destination for snorkelling and diving. Boat rides of 30-40 minutes are included with registered operators, and guests can expect an exciting time experiencing the waves on the open ocean waters. For those with uneasy stomachs, a ‘lighter than usual’ breakfast is definitely recommended on boat ride days! For those faint of heart, there is always the option of lounging on the beaches with an exotic local fruit drink. Husna staff and local English-speaking staff are always on hand to ensure your enjoyment and safety.
