African dream

Have you always dreamed of seeing wild animals up close? To see how they live, hunt and coexist in the typical African nature? But after a special safari on the mainland maybe you also want some relaxation days on the subtropical island of Zanzibar? Then this ten- day trip is right for you. Begin your journey on Zanzibar. Increase your D vitamin from the sun that, here, seems to shine an average of 9 hours a day and take a refreshing dip in the azure blue ocean. Then you leave on a small plane to the mainland, which is an experience in itself. Stone Town, the beautiful sea and the mainland of Tanzania are views to see from the air. Keep your camera ready because, who knows, you might spot the first wildlife already from above. The next six days are all about safari, spotting wildlife and admiring the unspoiled nature. Every day there is a new safari on the planning and we dare to guarantee that every day is unique and special. See how the lions feast on their freshly-caught prey, how the giraffes drink from the lake and how the different species of birds dance in the air. In the evening, at the safari camp, you will reminisce everything you've seen that day under a beautiful starry sky. Convinced? Book then this trip or check what trip suits you best.

Selous Game Reserve

Welcome to Selous Game Reserve, the largest nature park in the South of Tanzania. Behold the unspoiled nature and the diversity of landscapes in the park. Come face to face with the Big 5 and see animals up close that live only in East Africa. Selous is the only nature park where you may drive off road, so don't forget to have your binoculars when we drive to the animals! Our rangers and drivers are trained in spotting animals and can tell you everything about nature as well as wildlife. The mighty Rufiji river flows through the natural park where many animals lessen their thirst and among others, hippos have their home. With our boat and jeep safari you will experience the park in different ways and admire unique moments up close.

Ruaha National Park

Ruaha National Park belongs to the South Tanzanian reserves and is totally different from the other parks in Tanzania. The flora and the fauna are not comparable to other parks and  totally worth  experiencing  with your own eyes and ears. The ecosystem in Ruaha is still unspoilt and tourism is minimal. The beautiful rain forest is the habitat for many animal species and over 570 bird species. Ruaha is famous for its "Greater Kudu" that is spottable only in this park. In addition, Ruaha has the largest population of elephants in the whole East Africa and  there is much more to be seen, from wild dogs, leopards, jackals and many reptile species to  lions and cheetahs. Finally, Ruaha is rich in many baobab trees that are so peculiar to Africa. A beautiful sight and an experience you won't forget soon.

Africa Safari Camp-Selous

Africa Safari Camp is our third accommodation and is located on the edge of Selous Game Reserve. This unique location is a treat for any traveller in the middle of nature and is equipped with all comforts and facilities. Around Selous and our camp there are no fences, making you be right in the habitat of the wild animals. Discover footprints of elephants and/or impalas, just steps from your front door. But don't be afraid, the resort is designed in such a way that you are safe on the premises of the camp at all times. Enjoy a relaxing swim in the pool or come and relax in our lounge bar where you can read a book quietly with the birds singing in the background after a full safari day. Indulge your inner self with dishes prepared on site and watch, from the restaurant, the wild animals coming to drink from the pond. You’ll stay in one of our spacious bungalows, cabins or luxury tents, each one equipped with a private bathroom and toilet, hot water and shower. They also have large, comfortable beds with mosquito nets and ceiling fans.

Arrived in our camp there is a delicious welcome drink with lunch waiting for you. In the afternoon you will get to know the surroundings of the camp with an interesting village tour. See how the local people live, go to school and shop. The day concludes with a special safari boat. Behold the beautiful nature and the wild animals from the water on the Rufiji river. Hundreds of hippos live in this river along with many other animal species. Your visit to Selous Game Reserve is not complete before you've done a bush walk with a true bush man. Step in the footsteps of elephants and impalas and inquire about any special titbits from the nature. Meet the "Little 5" and learn how local people use nature as medicine. Watch in the distance a few curious birds and do not be afraid of dangerous animal species. You're accompanied by experienced rangers and a guide.

Day 5: full day game drive in Selous Game Reserve
Early day today because it is the day for spotting the Big 5. After a delicious breakfast you step into an open jeep that takes you into park.

Do not be afraid, you are perfectly safe. Enjoy all the beauty that you encounter along the way such as zebras, giraffes, elephants, impalas and so on. Normally you can see them on TV, but now you can see and enjoy them up close. During the afternoon, you can enjoy a delicious bush lunch in a safe place in the middle of the natural park. It has never been so quiet during your lunch break.

Day 7: Transfer to Ruaha National Park – Africa Safari Camp-Ruaha
After having discovered Selous in different ways, it is time to fly to the next reserve. The flight from Selous Game Reserve to Ruaha National Park takes about 1.5 hour.

Day 8: Full day game drive – Ruaha National Park
After waking up, there is a delicious breakfast waiting for you and it's time to go early on a jeep safari. You'll drive through the unspoiled nature with landscapes that enrich the horizon. The many baobab trees give you the African sense, especially if there is a group of lions resting in the shade. Ruaha is famous for its many elephants and the rare Greater Kudu. Absorb the information that the guide provides over the park, the animals and nature. Lunch is enjoyed on a special place in the middle of nature. Come back after an impressive day to our camp and take a refreshing dip in the pool. Reminisce all you have seen and dream away under the endless starry sky.
