Going on an African safari was my number one bucket list item for my entire life, and when I finally visited Tanzania in 2022 for my honeymoon I was proven to be right in that choice. It was the absolute best trip ever with Shiri Adventures and I couldn’t have had a better time, or chosen a better safari company to go with.
And because I had so much fun – and can vouch for how incredible a trip with Shiri Adventures is based on my experience – now I want to bring you with on a group trip to Tanzania! BUT not just that… we’re also going to Zanzibar! If you want that is… it’s an optional add-on.

Group Trip FAQs
Is this trip solo friendly?
Absolutely! If you’re going solo, we will simply assign you to a safari lodge room with another person of the same gender. Or you can request a solo room for an additional charge.
Do I need travel insurance?
I ALWAYS recommend getting travel insurance for large trips like this if you don’t have a travel credit card where that is already included. I’m an affiliate with Travel Insurance Master and love them. They build free quotes for you from top travel insurance companies that are based on your specific needs. Then, you select what works for you.
Is there an age range?
Nope! We welcome anyone of any age!
Do I have to go to Zanzibar?
No, the Zanzibar portion is completely optional! If you only want to go on the safari portion that is 100% fine!
Does the cost include flights?
The cost does NOT include flights to/from Tanzania, BUT if you are doing the Zanzibar add-on it DOES include the transit flight from Kilimanjaro to Zanzibar.
What’s included in the cost?
All accommodations, all activities, all transportation, professional guides, and taxes/VAT are included.
Most meals are covered as well! ALL meals on safari are included. If you’re coming to Zanzibar, one of the hotels is all-inclusive, but we’ll want to bring spending money for meals while here. We are working on putting together welcome/goodbye dinners once we have a clear group count as well!
NOT included: international flights to/from Tanzania, personal spending money, tips, government increase tax, visas, additional excursions such as the hot air balloon ride
What should I tip?
$10 – $20 per day, per person is the standard tipping rate for a safari, and would also be a good rate for guides in Zanzibar.
What is the lodging situation?
We are staying at what Shiri Adventures categorizes as luxury lodging. This allows for more potential guests, and a nicer hotel experience. When I did this safari I did mid-range lodging, so I’m VERY excited to see how beautiful these safari hotels are.
Where do I fly to?
Fly into Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) for the safari. And if you want to do the Zanzibar portion, you can fly back out of Zanzibar (ZNZ).
How many people will there be?
There can be up to 200 people in the group, HOWEVER each jeep has a max capacity of 7 people, so it will never *feel* that big.
What do I wear on safari?
How do I pay and are there payment plans?
20% deposit is required at booking, and the remaining balance is due 2 weeks prior to the trip. Shiri Adventures also accepts payments in installments, and you can pay online via credit card or wire transfer.
When do I have to book by?
March 31, 2024 is the final day to book to ensure there is lodging for everyone.
