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.
Day 2
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.
 
Note: Please be prepared for some rough roads.
Day 3
Enjoy an early morning game drive in Selous before your transfer to your light aircraft flight to remote Ruaha Game Reserve, the second largest wildlife reserve in Tanzania.
 
Check into your safari lodge in this magnificent wildlife wilderness and enjoy a late afternoon game drive in this pristine reserve.
Days 4 To 5
Today is devoted to game viewing in the previously inaccessible Ruaha Game Reserve, the second largest wildlife reserve in Tanzania.
 
Ruaha is a permanent hunting ground for lions, jackals, hyenas, cheetah and rare wild dogs which prey on zebras and antelope, with both the stunning roan and sable antelope found here as well as greater and lesser kudu. There are also thousands of elephants and buffalo and vast herds of gazelle, in beautful surroundings.
 
With over 450 bird species, including Eurasian migrating birds which flock to Ruaha twice a year (March/April and October/November), outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed.
Day 6
Enjoy an early morning game drive, before your light aircraft flight to Bagamoyo on the beautiful Swahili Coast.
 
Formerly the capital of German East Africa and one of the most important trading posts along the East African coast, Bagamoyo means "throw down your heart" - as slaves were imprisoned here before sold in the markets of Zanzibar.
 
Transfer by road and boat to your beach lodge, then relax on the shores of the warm Indian Ocean.
Days 7 To 9
At leisure to relax on the sunny golden Indian Ocean beaches of your lodge on the warm Swahili Coast.
 
Enjoy lazy days relaxing by the swimming pool or snorkelling over coral reefs in the sparkling turquoise waters. Visit local historical sites, explore the lagoons and mangrove swamps by kayak, or simply unwind and watch the local fishing fleet bringing in the catch for dinner each evening.
Day 10
Today transfer 2-hours by boat and road to Dar Es Salaam Airport for your flight home.
