MIKUMI-SELOUS-ZANZIBAR from € 1495,- P.P.
A 13-day Mikumi-Selous-Zanzibar safari tour through the biggest nature reserve of South Tanzania, the SELOUS GAME RESERVE, of which the neighbouring MIKUMI National Park forms a part. From Dar es Salaam, we drive for half a day to the Mikumi ‘gate’. Here we go on our first game drive in the afternoon to see our first big game and other wild animals.
The first 2 nights we will stay in a comfortable guesthouse in Mikumi National Park, after which we will drive through local villages and some lovely landscapes in our 4-wheel-drive jeep to the neighbouring Selous Game Reserve which guarantees a huge variety of bird life, mammals and the threatened wild dogs. For the next 3 nights, we will stay in the comfortable Africa Safari Camp with pool which is close to the Rufiji River. There are a number of tastefully furnished African bungalows in this camp. The broad Rufiji River is home to many exotic fish species, crocodiles and hippos. We will explore the most beautiful parts of the Selous on foot, by jeep and by boat.
BY AIR FROM SELOUS TO ZANZIBAR
After a hiking safari through the bush of the Selous game reserve, we will board a small aircraft to fly to Zanzibar. The flight takes less than an hour and we will take a taxi to the beautifully located REEF & BEACH resort. After all our safari adventures, we are going to relax and enjoy all the lovely things the exotic island Zanzibar has to offer. The accommodation is ‘all inclusive’ with comfortable 2-persons’ rooms with air conditioning, bathroom, balcony or patio with a view of the pool and the sparkling, blue-green Indian Ocean.
