SELOUS SAFARI


A much quieter park than its counterparts in Northern Tanzania, Selous is Africa's largest game reserve with a number of diverse safari activities which can be followed up by a trip to the beach in Zanzibar.  A perfect combination.

The Selous Game Reserve, covering 50,000 square kilometres, is amongst the largest protected areas in Africa and is relatively undisturbed by human impact. The property harbours one of the most significant concentrations of elephant, black rhinoceros, cheetah, giraffe, hippopotamus and crocodile, amongst many other species.

Zanzibar - There is something alluring about Zanzibar that is hard to put in words.  There is so much more to Zanzibar that it’s beautiful beaches.

The Island of Zanzibar lies just off the coast of Tanzania in the Indian Ocean. It is rich in history and cultural diversity, which is evident in the architecture of Stone Town, the old city and cultural heart of Zanzibar. The narrow, busy and sometimes dirty streets of Stone Town aren’t in any order but a maze of lane ways dotted with small shops, selling anything from local fruit, spices. traditional clothing and trinkets to a shops selling electronics, household goods, to name a few.  You will even see the odd internet cafe.
