This safari to southern Tanzania's two great game areas – Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park – has an accent firmly on luxury, visiting two very professionally-run and stylish camps, Siwandu and Jongomero; both offer excellent accommodation and food, as well as exciting and informative walking and 4WD safaris.
Arriving early in the morning into Dar, you connect with a light aircraft straight into Siwandu Airstrip, at the heart of Selous Game Reserve. An open 4WD and guide will meet you there, and then it's a very short drive to the shores of Lake Nzerekera where you stay at the beautifully situated Siwandu Camp. Spend 3 nights here enjoying game drives, walking safaris and exploratory boat trips around the area's numerous waterways. Then after a day out in the bush, put your feet up by the pool or relax in the bar.
In the morning, hop onto another light aircraft for an interesting flight (about 90 minutes). Your destination is the remote south western corner of Ruaha National Park. There a guide will meet you at the airstrip for the short, 10-minute drive to the secluded Jongomero Camp. Enjoy 4 nights at this luxurious and stylish camp from where you can explore Ruaha on all-day 4WD game safaris – or perhaps get up close and personal with the animals on walking safaris.
After your last morning safari, you fly (about 130 minutes) to the coastal city of Dar es Salaam, which is the hub for many of Tanzania's flights. There you can either continue onto a second section of your trip, perhaps a beach holiday to Zanzibar, or maybe take a short overnight stop in Dar prior to connecting with an International flight back home.
