Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • International outbound flight

    Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Dar es Salaam.

  • Dar es Salaam , Selous Game Reserve

    Your safari starts with a light aircraft flight from the bustling metropolis of Dar es Salaam into the heart of the Selous Game Reserve. The flight is an hour but you will feel worlds away as you fly in over seemingly endless expanses of acacia trees, wide snaking rivers and golden savannah. The Selous is wild, remote and one of the largest protected areas in Africa. There are few camps and consequently you won’t encounter many vehicles during your time here. You’ll be met by a driver at the airstrip who will take you to your camp to settle in. This afternoon you’ll be out on a boat safari, gliding over the water past enormous pods of hippo and huge crocodiles, enjoying the plethora of birdlife and admiring the sky setting in a blaze of reds, oranges and pinks.
