OVERVIEW

Want an exceptional safari without the crowds? Want to be pampered in discerning accommodation while still feeling like you can kick off your shoes? This inspiring itinerary fuses the best of the southern reserves with one of Zanzibar’s premier beach lodges. The accommodation throughout is superbly designed with family units that make travelling with younger children a breeze.

Beginning in the near-mythical port of Dar es Salaam, you fly to Nyerere National Park – Africa’s biggest conservation area for three nights of interesting game viewing. Then it’s onto Ruaha, a smaller national park also in western Tanzania that holds its own surprises. Finally, swap the safari dust for soft beach sand on the Spice Island of Zanzibar at a high-end resort.

THIS ITINERARY WAS DESIGNED BY ADELE

Tanzania is almost a second home as I’ve spent months at a time exploring it. There’s nothing like seeing the first wildebeest calves being born in the Southern Serengeti or being the only vehicle at phenomenal sightings in Nyerere or Ruaha. Chimpanzee trekking in Africa should definitely be on your bucket list!

DAILY ITINERARY

Take off from the historical coastal port of Dar es Salaam and touch down in Nyerere National Park (once known as Selous but renamed after the first president of Tanzania). You’ll land at either Mbuyu or Siwandu Airstrips before being transferred to Roho ya Selous for three nights.

Nyerere is Africa’s largest national park and is home to a huge number of animals. Because it is so large, vehicles are dispersed and you may have sightings all to yourselves, especially in green season.

Why we love Roho ya Selous:

  • A family tent so children can stay with parents
  • Specially cooled bed for late dry season’s heat
  • Chance to see world’s biggest wild dog population
  • Base from which to explore Tanzania’s largest park

Today you fly to Ruaha National Park which, while smaller than Nyerere, still packs a punch. It’s estimated that a tenth of the world’s lions live here along with myriad other wildlife. Home from home is Jabali Ridge, an awe-inspiring lodge overlooking the Mwagusi River.

You and your guide will explore everything from the Ikuka Falls to colossal baobabs; go out looking for wild dogs and inscrutable herds of buffalo. Night drives and guided walking safaris are also available.

Why we love Jabali Ridge:

  • Modified game-drive vehicle for photographers
  • Afternoons in the elevated infinity-edge pool
  • Unique design among the boulders of Ikuka
  • Calming spa for restorative massages

Baraza means ‘meeting place’  in Swahili, appropriate for Baraza Resort and Spa where earth meets sea and relaxation meets style. Arriving from the airport, you’ll be ushered to your very spacious villa on powdery Bewjuu-Paje Beach.

There’s so much to do here, including a variety of high- and low-tide water sports. The spa houses a gym, pool and yoga room if you want to stay in shape. Head out to Stone Town and Jozani Forest to see more of Zanzibar.

Why we love Baraza Resort and Spa:

  • Enormous villas each with private plunge pools
  • Several restaurants and bars to choose from
  • Right on the beach and set in 50 tropical gardens
  • Tennis courts, yoga, live music and a spa
