Watch up close the Red Colobus Monkeys and listen to the stories of the guide. At the end of the day you can enjoy a drink at the jetty bar in the beautiful sunset.

Day 3: Zanzibar-Bagamoyo
Wake up early, because the taxi is ready to take you to the airport of Zanzibar. You’ll step into a small airplane and after a short flight with a beautiful view of the country you’ll land on the airstrip of Bagamoyo. This airstrip is nothing more than a grassy path, an adventurous and cool way to arrive in the unspoiled nature. We’ll drive along the coast to the historic centre of Bagamoyo.

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. If you would rather spend this day among the wild animals, there is always an extra game drive possible.  See if you can spot new animals and enjoy beautiful nature and special moments. Finally, you can also choose to take a tour to the hot springs. The road to it is a true game drive and eventually you will arrive at a mountain massif which  ends with a waterfall in a hot spring.

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. It has never been so quiet during your lunch break. 

Day 10:  Bush walk, village tour & safari boat - Selous Game Reserve
Your visit to Selous is not complete before you've done a bush walk with a true bushman. Step in the footsteps of elephants and impalas and inquire about any special tidbits from the nature. Meet the "Little 5" and learn how local people use nature as medicine. See a few curious birds in the distance and do not be afraid of the dangerous animal species. You're going on the road with experienced rangers and a guide. 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 ends on a special safari boat. Behold the beautiful nature and the wild animals from the water on the Rufiji river. Hundreds of hippos live along with many other animal species in this river.
