Both packages can be booked with Tanzania Odyssey (www.tanzaniaodyssey.com / 020 7471 8780) and include scheduled flights from Heathrow to Dar Es Salaam, internal air transfers, accommodation on a full-board basis, game viewing drives in open sided 4×4 vehicles plus concession and park entrance fees, taxes and surcharges.
The 13-tent, Selous Safari Camp boasts unrivalled views, privacy and luxury in the heart of the Selous Game Reserve. Selous is Africa’s largest Game Reserve and has the highest concentration of African wildlife, countless birdlife and is home to over a million large animals and half of Tanzania’s elephant population. In addition to the game drives in private 4×4 Land Rovers, guests at the Selous Safari Camp also benefit from boat safaris on the mighty Rufiji River enabling them to get up close and personal to the largest crocodile and hippo population in Africa.
With just eight tents, Jongomero, the only camp situated in the remote central south-western sector of the Ruaha National Park, is a hidden gem promising unmatched privacy and a great vantage point from which to take in the sights and sounds of the African bush. Ruaha’s greatest secret lies in its extraordinary diversity of animals, plants and birds with elephant, huge herds of buffalo, giraffe, zebra, impala, eland, hippo, crocodile and lion to mention a few.
On safari, accommodation is in luxuriously-appointed en-suite tents which are built on raised platforms with thatched roofs. Each comes with a king-size bed and a private verandah, ideal for watching the animal world saunter past – which they frequently do – by day or night!
Set amid a long stretch of unspoilt beach and a fresh water lagoon, the boutique beach retreat of Ras Kutani on the Indian Ocean coast is the ideal hideaway for those seeking solace, luxury and Tanzanian charm. A perfect start or finish to an unparalleled safari experience.
