Day 4-6 Selous Game Reserve
Indulge yourself with a stay at one of Africa’s premier wildlife reserves. The largest on the continent, it offers unrivalled opportunities for game viewing. Tick off the big names of the safari world: elephants, lions, leopards, giraffes – even wild dogs.

Day 7-14 Zanzibar Island
Experience the sights, sounds and smells of the exotic spice island of Zanzibar, known for its cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Its offshore location attracted traders from across the Indian Ocean drawn to lucrative East African markets. Its atmospheric capital Stone Town is a warren of narrow alleyways. They're lined with mansions built from coral stone and hidden behind iron-studded wooden doorways. To the north, you’ll find some of the best beaches in the area.
