Itinerary

Day 1 Dar Es Salaam to Selous Game Reserve

You begin the 5-7-hour drive to Selous Game Reserve after breakfast. You can also opt for a flight from Dar es Salaam to Zanzibar).
You arrive at camp by midday, relax and have some lunch before we head out for some afternoon fun.
The afternoon starts with a lazy drift on a boat at Rufiji River. The boat ride offers an awesome view of numerous wildlife. We sneakily watch as the gazelles, zebras and baboons visit the river for a drink. The trees by the river cast a shadow like pillars while the thick bushy thorn trees cling to the water’s edge. The silence of the river is occasionally broken by a Kingfisher, African Skimmer or the pink-backed pelicans.
The crocodiles and hippos sunbathe by the river only to slither away or dive into the water when they see the boat.
Overnight at the lodge after meals. All meals are included.

Day 2Exploring Selous Game Reserve

Today we spend the whole day exploring the Selous Game reserve.
The Selous Game Reserve is among Africa’s largest reserves untouched by human activities. The reserve sits on a 50,000 square kilometre area. Animals to look out for here include the rhino, leopard, cheetah, elephant, hippos, giraffes, buffalos, wildebeests, impalas, hartebeests, elands, greater kudu, bushbucks, waterbucks, and so many more. The reserve is also home to the endangered puku antelope, the wild dog and the sable. The reserve also houses more than 440 bird species.
Overnight at lodge with breakfast, lunch and dinner provided.

Day 3Mikumi Township

Breakfast will be followed by a guided walking safari. This could include a village walk which will be followed by a game drive across Selous as you head out to Mikumi Township.
We will arrive late in the afternoon at the camp where you will relax, have dinner and retire for the night. All meals included.

Day 4Ruaha National Park

We leave for Ruaha National Park after breakfast and arrive in time for a picnic lunch. The remote location of Ruaha makes it appealing and means it’s not crowded.
Animals to watch out for include the lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, cheetahs, Zebras, hartebeests, reedbuck, gazelle, klipspringer, and many more.
Being untamed means the animals can get a little timid and will camouflage with their natural habitats. It takes patience and a good eye to spot them at the beginning of the game drive. Once your eyes adjust, you become a master at spotting them.
Overnight at lodge with all meals included.

Day 5Full day in Ruaha

The Ruaha National Park forms part of a larger ecosystem that includes the Usangu game reserve, the Rungwa Game Reserve, and other protected areas. This makes it one of the largest parks in Tanzania.
The park is a haven for bird watchers with more than 570 bird species spotted. The park is also home to a large herd of elephants and some rare animals like the Sable, Kudu, the endangered wild dogs, and Roan antelopes.
The park also hosts numerous crocodiles, snakes (both poisonous and non-poisonous), frogs, and lizards.
Overnight at lodge. All meals included.

Day 6Exploring the Mikumi National Park

From Ruaha, we head to Mikumi National park after breakfast.
Being the 4th largest park in Tanzania, Mikumi is nestled between the Lumango range and the Uluguru Mountains. The 4 to 5 hours’ drive gets you to Mikumi at noon. We carry some packed lunch, which will be eaten at a picnic site in the park.
The game drive begins immediately after arrival.
Mikumi offers beautiful panoramic views in the late afternoon. It’s also a time when the animals are most active. Animals to see include the zebras, Impalas, buffalos, lions, and over 300 bird species.
Overnight at camp or lodge. All meals included

Day 7Full day tour at Mikumi

Full day game drives at Mikumi, with the option to either have a picnic lunch or take a break at one of the lodges or tented camps.
Bordered on the sides by Mountain ranges, Mikumi National park is the best place to spot impalas, antelopes, reedbucks, and the yellow baboon. The hippo pools offer incredible views of hippos in their natural habitat. A variety of birds also flock the waters. Predators, including the spotted hyena and the African wild dog, can occasionally be spotted too.
Guided walking safaris are also an option at an extra fee. This is your chance to get in tune with nature. The vegetation in the park is mostly grassy acacia and miombo woodlands.
Overnight at camp/ lodge. All meals included.

Day 8Dar es Salaam

After breakfast, you take an optional morning game drive. Later, we check out of Mikumi after lunch and head back to Dar es Salaam. Depending on your plans after the safari, drop off will either be at the Ferry or the Airport.
