game drive and boat safari
You'll be picked up at your Zanzibar hotel and trasferred to the airport. Ater a 50 minutes flight, head for a full day game drive and a thrilling boat safari on Lake Tagalala. Selous is one of only 2 places in the whole of Tanzania where you can do boat safaris, the other being Saadani National Park. There is nothing quite like sitting with your packed lunch amongst the huge hippo pods, crocs and amazing birdlife on the lake. Get to the lodge at the last light for a dinner and bed.
Full day game drive in the park
Enjoy a full day game drive with our experienced guides in this amazing wildlife park. Nyerere National Park (formerly Selous Game Reserve), is the size of Switzerland but is still remote enough to offer all that more famous parks like Serengeti have to offer but without the crowds making this an altogether more exclusive experience.
back to zanzibar
After breakfast and a short game drive, you'll be transferred to Matambwe airstrip to catch your flight to Zanzibar. Upon arrival, transfer from the airport to your hotel will be arranged.
