Combining a safari in the spectacular Selous Game Reserve, a World Heritage Site which covers more than 5% of Tanzania's total area, with a laid-back resort nestled on the beachfront of one of the finest beaches on the island of Zanzibar, this is the ideal trip to enjoy all that this extraordinary part of the world has to offer.
A 3 night safari at Selous Serena Camp offers the visitor a unique opportunity to see Africa the way the early explorers found it - pristine, alive with game, empty of tourists and utterly awe inspiring. Early each morning and evening, you’ll set off in search of African wildlife, scouring the bush from your jeep or river boat, before returning to your luxurious time-honoured safari-style tent complete with a natural thatch roof, an elegant Victorian-styled bathroom and a private viewing deck.
You then fly to the island of Zanzibar. Bluebay Beach Resort & Spa is situated on the finest white, sandy beach on the east coast. Set in 30 acres of tropical gardens with over 1,000 palm trees, the resort offers excellent accommodation, fine wining and dining, a host of sports and leisure facilities, the famous Oasis Spa, and traditional Swahili charm.
Arrive into Dar es Salaam Airport. Go through Immigration, collect your luggage and clear Customs, then make your way into the Arrivals Hall. You will be met here by our representative and assisted with the check in for your flight across to Selous.
