This off-the-beaten-track trip takes you on a wild and exhilarating safari experience, split across two lesser-explored game-viewing regions before relaxing on the palm-fringed beaches of Zanzibar.


Why we love it

“Perfect for wild-at-heart honeymooners seeking a safari away from the norm. Southern Tanzania offers an exhilarating safari circuit, and, unlike most of East Africa, Ruaha National Park and the Selous Game Reserve are very much ‘off the beaten track'. The name of the game on this trip is authenticity, and the focus of your safari will be to connect with the history and culture of the region, as well as a front-row seat to see some of Africa’s largest prides of lion and packs of wild dog. Whilst the region is gaining popularity, the crowds are still drawn to the big-name parks (Serengeti and Masai Mara) so you will be able to step back in time and enjoy your safari in tranquillity.”

When to go

The rains arrive but excellent value rates, luscious greenery and the arrival of the colourful migratory birds can make this a lovely time to go

Dec-Mar

The long rains set in, so whilst low season rates apply, it is a risky time to visit

Apr-May

The dry season throughout the country ensures excellent game viewing and the wildebeest migration will be in full swing, if you want to add a stop in the west or northern Serengeti

June-Sep

A lovely season to travel at the end of the dry season and the start of the short rains - humidity is high but shoulder season rates make for a more affordable Tanzania trip

Ruaha National Park Selous Game Reserve Zanzibar
 

You'll land in Dar es Salaam International Airport, where you'll be met by our wonderful local partners and transferred to the domestic airport, in time to board your light aircraft flight to the bush. On landing in Ruaha, you'll be met by your safari guide for your game drive into camp.

Ruaha National Park

A remote wilderness with an incredibly high concentration of predators and one of Africa's top destinations for walking safaris. More off-the-beaten-track than the Northern Circuit, this park combines well with the Selous and Zanzibar with a daily light aircraft route.

To the beach! You'll be transferred back to the airstrip today for your final last light aircraft flight over to Zanzibar, where you'll be met by our local partners and transferred to your hotel, ready to watch the sun go down with a cocktail on the beach.

Zanzibar

White sandy beaches, energetic Stone Town and a rich history - this island has it all. The ideal stay would be around 5 nights and take in a bit of everything from rooftop lunches in the old town to private dhow cruises at sunset. The airport connect well with Tanzania's safari circuit and Nairobi, as well as the Middle East.
