Thomson Safaris Introduces Culinary-Focused Tour of Tanzania

Gibb’s Farm

Thomson Safaris announced a new itinerary for 2019 that will highlight both the country’s best wildlife and its culinary variety. The 10-night “Taste of Tanzania” trip takes guests on wildlife viewing safaris across the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, as well as to local markets across the country, including to the ‘spice island’ of Zanzibar.

Arriving in Arusha, Tanzania, guests will start the trip off by visiting the city’s local markets and the Rusha Coffee Lodge by Elewana, where they will participate in an interactive Swahili cooking demonstration. Moving on to the Serengeti, guests will spend the next three days exploring the iconic plains. When they’re not searching for wildlife, guests will learn how to make banana beer and join a traditional goat roast.

Moving on to the Ngorongoro Crater, travelers will stay at Gibb’s Farm, a property owned by Thomson Safaris owners Judi Wineland and Rick Thomson where they will learn about sustainable agriculture and farm-to-table culinary activities. Finishing up in Tanzania, guests will explore the island’s spice farms, visit the bustling Forodhani Gardens night market and take a sunset dhow cruise.
