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.
Days 2 To 3
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 4
After some early morning game viewing in the Selous Game Reserve, transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Dar Es Salaam and onward flight to Pemba.
 
You will be met at Pemba Airport and transferred to your beach resort on the shores of the warm Indian Ocean. Check in and relax in your warm tropical surroundings.
Day 5
Transfer to Pemba Airport for your light aircraft flight to Ibo Island.
 
Check into your lodge and relax on this enchanting island in the Quirimbas archipelago, with its 18th century forts, dilapidated colonial villas and crumbling, moss-covered buildings.
Days 6 To 10
Enjoy lazy days exploring historic Ibo Island, which used to be the main Portuguese trading centre in northern Mozambique and where time appears to have stood still.  
 
We suggest starting with a cultural walking tour of the quiet streets of this fascinating island, with its moss-covered buildings. Then take a 20-minute boat ride to sunbathe and swim from an unspoilt sandbar beach and snorkel among dolphins and fish of all descriptions.
 
Scuba divers can explore shipwrecks and the pristine Mozambique Reef in warm water and fishermen can try their hand at light tackle, fly-fishing or exhilarating deep sea game fishing in waters considered to be the best for marlin in the world. You can also kayak in the mangroves and take Arab dhow rides at sunset.
Day 11
Transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Pemba Airport for your onward flight home.
