Your tailor-made safari & beach holiday to Tanzania

sand rivers game drive sand rivers giraffes Beach 07

This safari and beach twin-centre itinerary combines a safari in Tanzania's Selous Game Reserve, one of the most stunning safari regions in East Africa, with a beach stay on Zanzibar island.

Most visitors to East Africa are drawn to the famous sights of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara, however if you are looking for something a little more secluded and off-the-beaten-track, then the Selous could be perfect for you. This undisturbed wilderness is Africa's largest game reserve, yet with very few camps and lodges, it offers a very exclusive safari. Experience back-to-nature walking safaris along with boat trips along the river and more conventional game drives.

You will then catch a short flight to Zanzibar where you spend the first two nights soaking up the culture of Stone Town, a world heritage site. The trip then ends with some well-earned relaxation time on Zanzibar's beautiful coastline.
