Arrive Dar es Salaam, fly to Ruaha – 3 nights.

In the heart of Ruaha National Park, Kigelia Ruaha offers a traditional and elegant camp with exceptional game viewing.

A rustic bush retreat, the camps’ tented rooms all have outdoor showers and open out onto the Ruaha plains.

Fly to Selous – 3 nights.

Sand Rivers Selous is in a stunning location on the banks of the Rufiji river in the vast Selous Game Reserve. The stone and thatch cottages, raised on decks and open-fronted, overlook the river.

Enjoy game driving in the open-sided 4×4 vehicles, go on a walking safari or a boat safari down the Rufiji River – a wonderful contrast to game viewing from a vehicle.

Fly to Dar es Salaam – depart.

Sadly, the end of your safari; other plans can be made to go to East Africa’s soft white beaches and historic coastal towns, include another safari destination, or depart for home.
