Glossy Ibis Fly-in Safari

Glossy Ibis Fly-in Safari: In full

This is a top safari designed for a small group of four friends or family travelling together. Stay for three nights in the superb Bailey's Banda in the beautiful Selous Game Reserve, enjoying exhilarating walking safaris with some of the country's top guides, peaceful boat trips on the nearby Lake Tagalala, and open-topped 4WD drives. Then fly over to Ruaha where you'll stay in the beautiful Jabali Ridge and explore the stunning wildlife by vehicle and foot.
In both lodges you'll have your own private activities and guides, giving you a personal and exclusive experience.


Days 1-3

3 nights at Beho Beho Bailey's Banda (full board & activities) | Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania

Bailey's Banda is Beho Beho's chic private house. From Dar es Salaam, you'll connect to a light aircraft for the Selous Game Reserve. This 50-minute flight takes you inland to the Selous. You may stop briefly at other airstrips in the park, before arriving at the Beho Beho airstrip, from where it's barely 5 minutes' drive to your stunning private house - Bailey's Banda. The views are spectacular! You usually arrive in time for an excellent lunch, and a little time to relax and take it all in, before going out for your afternoon activity. During your time here, game activities will be done on your schedule - when you want them, and for as long as you want them (within reason!). You'll have your own private vehicle and boat, and can walk straight out from the banda with a guide.

Days 4-7

4 nights at Jabali Private House (full board & activities) | Ruaha National Park, Tanzania

Jabali Private House is a luxurious three-bedroomed house for families or groups. After a last morning safari activity, you'll board another small plane to take you the 90 minute's flight to Ruaha. It's incredible to watch the scenery change between the two parks. On arrival at the airstrip you'll be met by a guide from the camp and taken to your next camp - the dramatic Jabali Private House. Your time here will be spend exploring the fantastic wildlife which Ruaha has to offer with your own private guide. While the majority of activities will be done in 4WD, you'll also have the option to do some walking and night drives too. Meals will be cooked by your private chef and tailored specifically to your group.

Day 8

After a last breakfast, and activity if there's time, hop onboard the light aircraft to leave Ruaha National Park, and make your way back to Dr es Salaam where your trip will finish. Zanzibar is only a short hop away though if you fancy a bit of beach relaxation after your safari!
