DAY 1 –– YOUR ADVENTURE BEGINS
1 Night in Ruaha National Park
Natural grandeur at Ruaha National Park:
The semi-arid savannahs of the Ruaha National Park’s rolling plains are spread with acacias and baobabs and over-hanging forest, and is said to have the highest concentration of African elephants in all of East Africa.
Inside Tanzania’s largest park, the rushing Great Ruaha River and its borders stretching across two flora zones promise an abundance of diverse wildlife. Visitors will be pleased to spot some of the 8,000 elephants and over 570 species of birdlife that call the park home. The dry months offer the most excellent game-viewing opportunities as many of the park’s residents gather near the Great Ruaha and Mzombe rivers for fine dining.
Our Favourite Ruaha Camp
Kwihala is set deep in the bush of Ruaha National Park. It’s the largest national park in Tanzania, with plentiful wildlife, yet it feels remote and peaceful, with fewer visitors than other parks. This classic, expedition-style six-tent camp offers an intimate, exclusive safari experience in this vast land of towering baobabs and dense forests.
Head out on game drives to see elephants — the largest population in Tanzania is located here — and lions, known for hunting giraffes, buffalo and even elephants. On foot, discover the smaller inhabitants of the bush and learn how to identify animal prints and dung. At night, venture out with a spotlight to find nocturnal animals like bush babies and hyenas. Finish off the day around the campfire with a glass of wine under the glittering Milky Way.
DAY 2 & 3 –– CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY TO
2 Nights in Selous Game Reserve
Discover the Untouched Landscapes of Selous Game Reserve
Selous Game Reserve is known as one of the largest faunal reserves on the globe and one of Africa’s largest protected areas. Located in southern Tanzania, the reserve attracts far less visitors than its northern counterparts.
This—accompanied by its pristine and untouched landscapes—has earned Selous a reputation as one of Africa’s last remaining wildernesses. Relatively undisturbed by humans, Selous’ diverse vegetation includes patches of savannah, riverine forest, and swamp that impose on the predominant miombo woodland. In turn, this diverse habitat accommodates a wide range of fauna and flora. Off-roading is permitted, allowing the full blast of wild majestic adventure.
Our Favourite camp in Selous Reserve
ROHO YA SELOUS
Experience the rugged beauty of Tanzania’s verdant swamps and hills with Roho Ya Selous, an exclusive tented camp set within the quieter part of Selous Game Reserve. Encounter a plethora of species, including the Big 5, African wild dog and Pel’s fishing owl on game drives, walking safari and boat safari. Ideal for honeymooners, family, or even small groups seeking peaceful safari getaways to unspoilt wildlands.
DAY 4 & 5 –– CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY TO
2 Nights in Zanzibar Island
The largest and most popular island in the Zanzibar Archipelago, Unguja (or ‘Zanzibar’ as it is more commonly known) is a short flight away from Tanzania and easily accessible from other popular tourist destinations such as the Serengeti National Park, Arusha, and Dar es Salaam.
A more budget-friendly option is to reach the island via a luxury ferry that leaves the mainland. The main island is the most developed in the archipelago and promises an endless list of interesting and relaxing diversions. The historical Stone Town (the main port and commercial centre of the archipelago) is teeming with life and an example of the old and new colliding in bringing this beautiful gem to life.
Our Favourite Lodge in Zanzibar
Master the art of relaxation at Matemwe Lodge...
Matemwe Lodge transports guests to somewhere in the past, when clocks were irrelevant and the passing of time was determined by the rhythm of the ocean. Watch dhows glide past from the comfort of your suite’s hammock and wander along one of the most unspoilt beaches on the Zanzibar coastline.
