Selous & Spice

Explore remote and quiet southern Tanzania on safari before heading off to the beach on the beautiful island of Zanzibar.

This is an incredible safari holiday for those looking to get off the beaten track. Selous is much wilder and more remote than the game reserves of Northern Tanzania and you are unlikely to see many other visitors when out on your game drives.

The game is diverse and you will get the chance to see a variety of wildlife. You might even get the chance to see the endangered African Wild Dog if you are extremely lucky.

Following your safari, escape to the beautiful 'Spice' island of Zanzibar with world-class beaches, and a rich history, culture, and geography like no other in the world. It's a true tropical paradise with much to offer including white sand beaches, world-class water sports, a unique history and delectable cuisine.

Explorers Against Extinction works to raise awareness as well as funds for specific conservation projects. They've donated over $250,000 USD to safeguard iconic species around the world including Africa. By enquiring and booking through this site you will be supporting conservation. On behalf of all confirmed clients, Explorers Against Extinction receives a donation.

Safari Itinerary

DAY 1-4

Selous
Fly to Selous. On arrival you will be met and transferred to your safari camp. The Selous Reserve is the largest in Africa, spanning 55,000km² and is four times larger than the Serengeti. Selous has more than half of Tanzania’s elephant population, over 120,000 buffalos, and both the 40,000 hippo and 4,000 lion in the reserve are probably the largest populations on the continent. Selous is also home to the planet’s largest population of rare wild dogs; giving guests an opportunity to glimpse all of these animals in true unspoilt landscape. Selous Impala Camp is around 45 minutes from the airstrip and you'll enjoy a game drive on your way. The camp is situated on a wooded stretch of the stunning Rufiji River within the Selous Game Reserve. Simply yet stylishly designed, it offers varied safaris both on land and water.

DAY 5-8

Zanzibar
Early morning game drive is followed by breakfast, after which you will be transferred to the airstrip for your flight to Zanzibar. On arrival in Zanzibar, you will be met and transferred to Pongwe Beach Hotel, located by a picture perfect beach with white powdery sands, turquoise waters and shady palm trees. Check-in and enjoy your time at leisure. Pongwe Beach is protected by an offshore reef which keeps the water calm and safe for all to swim in. Snorkeling and boat trips can also be arranged.
