Treasures Of Tanzania Safari Treasures Of Tanzania Safari

10 Nights

Selous, which is said to be the largest game reserve in Africa, is relatively untouched and offers some of Tanzania's best big game safaris.

This unspoilt gem allows visitors the chance to see a wild and expansive Africa. Sable Mountain Lodge provides great accommodation in stone cottages, spaced out midway up a small hill, plus tented rooms, all offering superb views.

Saadani National Park is a fabulous, unique combination of beach and big game - the best of two different types of holiday. Saadani is dominated by acacia woodland and coastal thickets. It also protects a large area of mangrove swamps along the coastline north of the Wami River.

Accommodation is in the delightful Tent With A View camp, which is a secluded tropical haven, with raised treehouse-style bandas secreted among the coconut groves, just outside the park's northern boundary on a delightful stretch of deserted, driftwood-strewn beach. The bandas, which are well-spaced out, have verandas and hammocks and are directly on the beach.

Relax in Zanzibar at the small, delightful Dhow Palace hotel in the heart of Zanzibar's historic Stone Town.
