Beach & Safari Holidays is part of the Paradise & Wilderness Group, a Tanzanian Safari & Zanzibar specialist led by Dutch owner, Bert Schoonvelde. Years ago he came to Zanzibar on holiday:
"My holiday to Tanzania was too short to get to know this magical land, so I stayed here and made my dream job!
I now consider myself very lucky, with two beach resorts in Zanzibar, an Airport guesthouse in Dar es salaam, and the Africa Safari Camp in the Selous Game Reserve, one of the largest and most beautiful parks in Africa. The combination of culture, white sandy beaches and the largest Game Reserve in Africa make for an incredible holiday package. It was with this idea in mind that we created this website, so we can offer fantastic complete holidays in a simple format. I want as many people possible to get to know Tanzania and Zanzibar, with the incredible wealth of unspoiled nature, wildlife and friendly locals."
Whether you are visiting Tanzania for the first time, or are an annual guest, we make sure that everything is set up and organized for your stay. There are always English and Dutch speaking staff. Even our local staff can now speak a little Dutch! And they would also like to teach you a few words in Swahili.
We have our own local offices, accomodation, safari cars and a growing group of motivated employees to make sure your stay is comfortable and trouble free. We are also fully insured and licenced. We also have offices in Europe and Asia.
We will pick you up straight from the airport, and drive you back again for your return flight. We can also help you get a great price on your flight. Just contact us and ask!
The climate here is always pleasant. It reaches around 30ºC every day, with very little rainfall, and an average of 9 hours a day sunshine. A dream!
The low season is between April and may, but it is still a good time to come, even if it rains a little more.
