Day 5: Transfer to Selous – Africa Safari Camp
Today you leave with a small plane from Zanzibar airport to Selous Game Reserve, the natural park located in the South of Tanzania.

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.

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 in to 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.

Day 7: Relaxation day or tour
Today is all about relaxing in the Africa Safari Camp. Read a book with the rustling of the wild animals in the background, take a dip in the lovely pool or play the typical Tanzanian game Bao at the bar.

Finally, you can also choose to have a tour to the hot springs. The road to it is a true game drive and eventually you will arrive at a mountain massif where it ends with a waterfall in a hot spring. An idyllic place where you can swim, relax and enjoy a delicious lunch.

Day 8: Bush walk and transfer to Zanzibar

See in the distance a few curious birds and do not be afraid of dangerous animal species. You're going on the road with experienced rangers and a guide. After coming back it's time to say goodbye to the wilderness. You are flying again with a small plane back to Zanzibar, where you’re welcomed warmly once again in the resort of your choice.
