Planning a honeymoon to Tanzania. Want to do safari and then hit Zanzibar. Has anyone done this trip? Any recommendations on days to spend on safari vs Zanzibar? For safari, I have been looking on safaribookings website which has tons of options.

I just got back from that same trip. We went to Kilimanjaro, then on a Safari, and then Zanzibar. It all depends on your budget, but we went with Suricata Safaris on the 1,500 option per person and had a blast. Not luxury but great driver, great lodges, and great itinerary. It was 5 days in Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and two more places. I think I would have liked to spend a day more in Serengeti so I would recommend a 6 day itinerary. For Zanzibar, we went there for 3 days, stayed one day at Old Town and 2 days at the resort. Would recommend staying for longer and skipping the stay at Old Town. The island is really big so if you want to go to the turtles, do water sports and visit Old Town, I think 4/5 days would do.

Was Zanzibar part of the suricata safari package? If not did you use a travel agency to arrange the last leg of your trip?
