Wonderful Tanzania

‘If something is worth doing, do it well’. This expression is definitely true for this trip. If you want to go to Africa for safari and beach, then this fortnight trip is totally worth it. Start and finish your trip in Zanzibar, the subtropical island known for its culture, spices, underwater world and pearl white beaches. Customize yourself to the pleasant African tempo and feast your eyes on all the beautiful landscapes and images you see in nature and in the city. The locals will welcome you warmly. There is plenty to do in each trip type: snorkel or dive over the colorful coral, meet the Red Colobus Monkeys in  Jozani Forest or hold a siesta in a hammock hanging between two swaying palm trees and toast to this wonderful journey during the red setting sun. As icing on the cake, you are going six days on safari in the two most beautiful natural parks of Tanzania. Meet the unspoiled nature and come face to face with the Big Five and all other wild animals. It is an experience that you must witness to believe how special and extraordinary it is. Both in Ruaha National Park and in Selous Game Reserve you will have moments you’ll never forget and you’ll get goose bumps when you show the photos to your friends and family and tell how special it was. Wonderful Tanzania!  When can we welcome you?

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 forget about your binoculars, 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. On our boat and safari jeep 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 incomparable 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 a lot 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 ever forget.

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.

Day 4: Transfer to Selous – Africa Safari Camp
Today you leave on a small plane from Zanzibar airport to Selous Game Reserve, the natural park located in the South of Tanzania. This flight is already a tour in itself; therefore enjoy all the beautiful views. It starts with the coastline of Zanzibar, then the azure blue sea and finally the unspoiled nature on the mainland of Tanzania. With a bit of luck you’ll spot the first wild animals up from the air. 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. Selous Game Reserve is the only nature park in Tanzania where it may be driven "off road", making a pair of binoculars redundant. Our rangers are trained in spotting animals and drive there directly. 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 6:  Relaxation day or tour – Africa Safari Camp-Selous
Your second full day in Selous is open for relaxation. Take a dip in the lovely pool or read a book while enjoying a drink and the soothing silence around you. Are you curious about the wildlife and unspoiled nature, then go right away on our game drive in open 4 x 4 jeeps.

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. The airstrip is located in the reserve where, after landing, you go directly on game drive. Behold the beautiful nature and come face to face with the wild animals. After the game drive it's time to check in at Africa Safari Camp – Ruaha. You will be welcomed with a delicious drink and will spend the night in one of the luxury tents in the middle of nature.

Day 8:    Full day game drive in 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.

Day 9: Relaxation day in Africa Safari-Ruaha
A vacation or trip is complete only if you relax and enjoy the environment in which you are located. A totally different world and enough features to discover this area. Read a book with a view of the vast nature or go on an extra game drive, it's all possible during this relaxation day at the camp. Have you always wondered about the night life of the wild animals? Then go on a night safari and see which animals are very active as soon as the sun has disappeared behind the horizon.

Day 10:    Transfer to Zanzibar
Today it's time to say goodbye to the wilderness. You fly on a small plane back to Zanzibar, where you once again are warmly welcomed at Paradise Beach Resort. The rest of the day is free and can be filled in with shopping for souvenirs in Stone Town or just soaking up the sun on the beach or by the pool. Enjoy reminiscing your impressions and load yourself up completely before your return home.

Days 11-13: Zanzibar
There are still three full days on this beautiful island. You can do a variety of activities such as swimming among wild dolphins, snorkeling above colorful coral or a cultural village walk.
