Active, safari-focused itineraries through East Africa can still make space for some downtime, as this 13-day tour demonstrates. After canoeing through beautiful lakes, hiking through craters, and spotting wildlife in Serengeti National Park, you'll fly to the idyllic island of Zanzibar for some well-earned time on its sandy beaches. Or dive underwater to explore colourful coral reefs with a snorkelling session. It's the perfect balance of activities to satiate your adventurous spirit and recharge your batteries too.
