Your flight from London lands you in Dar es Salaam where you’ll connect with a local flight to the Selous Game Reserve, a remote wilderness in southeast Tanzania. You’ll spend the next four nights in a luxurious open-fronted cottage, spectacularly set on a curve of the majestic Rufiji River. You’ll explore the river on exciting boat safaris, meandering along its hidden waterways and tributaries as you look out for the wild animals that frequent its banks.
Game drives aboard purpose-built 4×4 vehicles will take you to see the reserve’s lions, leopards, monkeys, elephants, giraffes and crocodiles. Walking safaris are also available and offer you a far more intimate experience of the African bush. Those feeling extra adventurous can even enjoy fly camping deep in the reserve, a chance to totally immerse yourself and feel at one with the surrounding wilderness.

You’ll find yourself in the midst of some of the world’s top dive sites, whilst the resort has its own fully equipped dive centre. Water skiing, fishing and windsurfing are also on offer, as well as private catamaran charters and romantic sunset dhow cruises. Otherwise, you can enjoy relaxing treatments at the spa or make use of the resort’s games room.

It was a complicated and very individual trip, and several changes were made by me during the planning. None of this seemed to worry Ayesha and everything went according to plan.- AM, India
