After the safari, you fly to Zanzibar. You spend the first two days in historic and atmospheric Stone Town, where you wander around museums, shops and restaurants. Thereafter, you spend four days on the white sandy beaches on the east coast of Zanzibar.

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.

Selous

From Dar es Salaam you travel to Selous by car. This is a wonderful journey past villages and through stunning landscapes. Late afternoon, you take a boat safari to behold the sunset. The next two days are filled with jeep safaris. This is the perfect way to see this huge reserve and the many animals that live here. The final morning you’ll go on a walking safari for a few hours.

Clearly, these are three adventurous and highly versatile days in the middle of nature.

Stone Town

From Selous, you fly to the tropical island of Zanzibar where you stay in its old town and cultural heart; Stone Town. The bustling old centre is known for its numerous shops, markets, old and stately buildings and mosques.
