Day 1
You will be met at Dar Es Salaam Airport and transferred to your light aircraft flight to the remote Selous Game Reserve, the largest wildlife reserve in Africa.
 
Check into your safari lodge in this magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its amazing diversity of wildlife and undisturbed nature, before enjoying a late afternoon game drive.
 
Note: As you will be flying in a light aircraft you must pack soft sports bags only, as rigid suitcases will not fit into the luggage pods. A baggage allowance of 15 kg (which includes your hand luggage) is strictly enforced for safety reasons. Excess baggage can be stored with our representative in Dar Es Salaam.
Days 2 To 4
Today enjoy early morning and late afternoon game viewing in the vast and little visited Selous Game Reserve.
 
Named after the famous hunter and early conservationist, Frederick Courtney Selous, this great game reserve covers an area of over 21,000 square miles (54,000 square km) - making it larger than Switzerland and four times the size of the Serengeti.
 
As a result, many game species can be found here in greater numbers than in any other game park in Africa - including over 70% of Tanzania's elephants. Hippo, buffalo and crocodiles are abundant and lion, hyena, wild dog and rhino can also be seen. Also gnu, hartebeest, kudu, sable, eland, reedbuck, bushbuck, waterbuck, warthog, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, leopard and cheetah. There are over 350 different bird species too, including the bataleur eagle, and walking safaris are permitted.
Day 5
Enjoy a final early morning game drive in Selous, before your light aircraft flight to Dar Es Salaam and connecting flight to Zanzibar.
 
You will be met at Zanzibar Airport and transferred 1-hour to your beach hotel. Check in and relax in your wonderful surroundings on this exotic East African spice island.
Days 6 To 10
At leisure to relax and enjoy the gorgeous white sandy beaches of the Zanzibar Archipelago.
 
Activities vary depending on the size of your resort but usually include water sports such as kayaking, windsurfing and kite surfing. You can sail in a traditional Arab dhow or enjoy a full day catamaran excursion around the island, with snorkelling opportunities. Be sure to try their refreshing iced hibiscus tea and some of the many spices grown on this island.
 
The best scuba diving is around Mnema Island in the northeast and Nungwi in the north. Deep sea game fishing is also based out of Nungwi, where there is a privately owned turtle aquarium.
 
A variety of day excursions are also on offer including a walking tour of historic Stone Town, a spice island tour, snorkelling at Prison Island where you can see giant tortoises, a cultural tour to Uzi Island and Swahili cookery lessons.
 
If you would like to see local wildlife, you can visit Jozani Forest in the south of the island, where you can see rare indigenous red colobus monkeys and walk along a mangrove boardwalk to enjoy its birdlife and flora, including some giant baobab trees. There is a Butterfly Centre and Snake Park outside the gate. From late July to mid November you can also take a boat ride to see migrating humpback whales.
Day 11
Transfer 1-hour to Zanzibar Airport for your flight home.
