Southern Tanzania and Zanzibar Beach Escape

This itinerary takes in the full Southern Circuit regions of Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park. To this day these safari regions of Tanzania are still relatively undiscovered, the result is a safari experience that very few places in Africa can match for shear adventure. Following the safari the itinerary then moves on to Zanzibar and two of our favorite beach retreat properties on the island.
