You spend four nights in a comfortable camp inside the Selous Game Reserve. From Selous you fly to Zanzibar where you stay at the beautiful beach for six nights.
Dar es Salaam
Your trip begins in Dar es Salaam; the economic heart of Tanzania. You’re welcomed at the airport and brought to your accommodation. You spend the first evening in a comfortable hotel located along the water in a suburb of Dar es Salaam. A pleasant place for you to enjoy a late-night snack and drink to recover from the flight.
Enjoy four days in the Selous Game Reserve. You alternate safaris by jeep and by boat. From a boat on the Rufiji river you can easily see the natural behaviour of the animals. Sailing among the hippos, crocodiles and the many birds is a truly unforgettable experience. In addition to a safari jeep, the Selous Game Reserve is one of the few sanctuaries where a safari on foot is allowed. With an expert guide you can see the animals and their tracks up close.
You continue the journey by plane to the tropical island of Zanzibar, the place in the Indian Ocean where Arabia and Africa meet. Zanzibar is characterized by quiet fishing villages, pristine white, heavenly beaches and the bustling Stone Town. The perfect location to combine with the safari in Tanzania.
In the afternoon you leave Zanzibar (via Nairobi or Dar es Salaam) back to your home destination. Depending on your flight, you arrive the next morning.
