Selous & Spice in Style

This is an incredible safari holiday for those looking to get off the beaten track. We've selected some of the best small properties to ensure you enjoy prime locations and activities in each destination.

In Southern Tanzania's Selous, game is diverse and you will get the chance to spot a variety of wildlife from both land and river. The Rifigi River is at the heart of this vast wilderness, the largest protected wildlife reserve in Africa.

Your safari is followed by a stay on the beautiful Spice Island of Zanzibar - rich in history - a hub for both the Spice Trade and explorers, including Livingstone, Burton and Speke. Zanzibar is blessed with atmospheric Stone Town, a maze of streets, and a perimeter of glorious white sand beaches - many of the best on the north and east coasts including Bwejuu – Paje beach where Baraza is located. The style of this luxury boutique resort reflects Zanzibar's rich history.
