Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Selous

From Dar Es Salaam, enjoy the scenic flight to Stiegler’s airstrip right in the heart of the Selous. This afternoon head out for a game drive in Africa’s largest game reserve, reputed to have the continent’s largest buffalo and lion populations, along with numerous leopard and thriving packs of wild dog. Return to the welcoming Selous Serena Camp after sunset for dinner and a chance to meet fellow guests.

Day 2 - Selous

Spend the day exploring the vast, pristine African bush with a choice of game activities. Your experience is tailored to you with options of half or full day game drives, river cruises and walking safaris. Vehicles seat just four guests ensuring a private experience and maximum game viewing opportunities.

Day 3 to 9 - Zanzibar

After breakfast, there may be time for one last game drive before making your way to the airstrip for your flight to Zanzibar. From your plane watch as the African bush gives way to the azure sea and coral fringed islands.

On arrival into Zanzibar, transfer to your choice of magnificent beachfront hotels where you will spend the next seven nights. Enjoy the facilities of the hotel and take advantage of the water activities on offer. Away from the beach, explore Stone Town’s maze of alleyways and colourful markets or visit a traditional island spice farm.

Day 10 - Farewell

After breakfast enjoy some free time before transferring to the airport for your onward flight.
