A simple yet adventure-filled holiday combining the incredible wildlife and scenery of the Selous Game Reserve with a seven-night stay on Zanzibar’s exquisite Pemba Island.

The first half of your trip will be spent at a luxurious, riverside safari camp in the Selous. One of Africa's largest and least exploited wildlife sanctuaries, you’ll have the opportunity to explore a diverse array of habitats in search of lions, elephants, leopards, giraffes and more. In addition to bush walks and game drives, you’ll have fly camping, fishing and boating opportunities all at your doorstep.

After the drama of the African bush you’ll fly to Pemba Island where you’ll be surrounded by the blue waters of the Indian Ocean and some of the country’s finest beaches. Days can be spent snorkelling, scuba diving, water skiing and windsurfing, or simply catching up on some reading by the pool. The perfect end to a captivating Tanzanian safari.
