Attend our special Welcome Dinner event and delight yourself with a variety of exotic and not-so exotic grilled meats at one of Nairobi’s most famous restaurants.

Then, we'll go a bit of club hopping in Nairobi’s popular Westlands nightlife district.

Now, it's time to hit up your second country in this once-in-a-lifetime bucket list adventure as we set off for Zanzibar, Tanzania.

Upon arrival in Zanzibar, we will be warmly welcomed and whisked away to our beachside resort, where we will have the chance to relax and soak up the tropical sun. But before we get fully immersed in the tranquil atmosphere of our resort, we will make a few cultural stops along the way.

Set out for a day of island hopping around Zanzibar’s crystal blue waters.

You’ll ride in a traditional Dhow boat, visit a sandbar that gradually disappears as the day goes on, take a dip in a natural swimming pool (mangrove)... and finally make your way to a private island where a seafood feast awaits.

We’ll be on a quest to see almost the entire cast from The Lion King as we go on an early morning Game Drive. Then visit a Hippo Lodge and chat with real Maasai warriors.

Enjoy a sumptuous dinner prepared by our chefs, followed by a lively late night bonfire.

We'll go on a road trip from Nairobi to the Maasai Mara where we'll stay in a lovely safari lodge, then enjoy a late afternoon game drive.

Let the mystery of the Maasai Mara lure you in with a cozy Bush Dinner complete with a surprise performance.

It’s time to head back to Nairobi for an up close and personal interaction with giraffes and we'll get to feed them.

We'll then have a bit of free time where you'll have the opportunity to explore more of Nairobi or maybe do some shopping.

Then, since it'll be our last night in Kenya, we'll gather in the evening for some exquisite cuisine and nightlife if you're feeling it.

During the day, take some free time to enjoy the beautiful crystal blue waters of Zanzibar... but by sunset, be prepared to be mesmerized on a special local cruise.

It’s Black Travel Fest tradition to do it big for Halloween with a themed event. And this year’s celebration happens to coincide with one of the largest full moon parties in the world that just happens to take place in Zanzibar each month. We’ll be in full attendance.

A day of fun in the sun and the infamous turtle sanctuary? Yes, please. Today, you’ll enjoy free time and a bit of up close interaction with the friendly giant turtles of Zanzibar.

By evening, you’re in for a very special BTF-style farewell experience to bid your new BTF travel fam goodbye. Be prepared to dress up in your favorite digs.

This experience is for you if:

...YOU love to turn up and are the life of the party

...YOU love enjoying local foods and meeting local people

...YOU are ready to grow your travel fam with like-minded travelers

...YOU have stamina to explore during the day and party at night, then do it all over again
