Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Dar Es Salaam

On arrival into Dar Es Salaam, transfer to the luxury Serena Hotel for the rest of the day at leisure. An oasis in this bustling city, the hotel has manicured lawns and an inviting outdoor pool.

Day 2 - Fly to Ruaha National Park

This morning transfer to the airstrip to begin your Ruaha adventure on a fly-in Safari. Travel by light aircraft deep into the heart of the country, touching down at an airstrip in the park where you will transfer to the charming Jongomero tented camp for three nights. The camp is located in a prime position close to the seasonal rivers which draw large numbers of game in search of water. After lunch, head out on your first game drive to experience Ruaha’s wide variety of wildlife.

Over the next two days, enjoy morning and afternoon game drives through Ruaha’s rugged baobab studded landscape. With its unique blend of eastern and southern ecosystems the park hosts an extraordinary diversity of wildlife including elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard as well as rarer creatures such as sable and roan antelope.

Day 5 - Swahili Coast

Time permitting this morning, head out on one last game drive, before transferring to the airstrip for your flight back to Dar es Salaam. On arrival you will be met and transferred by road to the beach hideaway of Ras Kutani for four nights on the unspoilt Swahili Coast. Enjoy the solitude and barefoot luxury of your beach lodge with its charming ocean view cottages. There is a wonderful sandy beach that stretches for miles and of course the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

Day 9 - Farewell

Today relax and make the most of your beautiful surroundings before transferring back to Dar Es Salaam for your flight home.
