Zanzibar Safaris

If you can pull yourself away from the gorgeous white sand beaches and dazzling crystal clear waters of Zanzibar, then why not add on a three day fly-in safari to the magnificent Selous Game Reserve, in southern Tanzania.

After a short flight directly to the reserve you'll experience the thrill of a safari over the expansive wilderness of Selous. Boasting over 54,000 square kilometres of terrain – and home to 750,000 animals including the Big Five – Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest reserves in the world. Here you will have the opportunity to experience your safari by open 4x4 game vehicle, by boat, or on foot, spotting leopards, rare African wild dogs and herds of elephant, as well as hippo and crocodile on the Rufjii River.

Alternatively, if you'd prefer a longer safari, you could opt to contrast your time on the paradise island with one of our amazing Kenyan safaris or take in more of Tanzania, including the Serengeti, Selous and Lake Manyara reserves. Whatever you have in mind, call one of our Destination Specialists to discuss your safari and beach holiday aspirations and they will tailor make your ideal itinerary. 

Top Tips from our Experts

Destination Specialist

“Take a walking safari in the Selous reserve – it's a great way to get up close to nature. But don’t worry: you won't be left out in the wilderness on your own, you'll be joined by a knowledgeable tracker who will be able to point out things that you may not have noticed on your own.”

"You'll enjoy the best of both worlds when you contrast the excitement of an action-packed safari experience with the serenity of down time spent lounging on Zanzibar's stunning beaches – I highly recommend this combination."
