This is an exciting, good quality Tanzania safari and beach holiday which won't blow your budget. We love it, and it consistently proves hugely popular with our travellers.

We've made this holiday to offer you a really great experience in southern Tanzania at a very good price. You have two nights in Saadani on the east coast, three nights on safari in Selous, and in Zanzibar you have three nights on the beach.

We've arranged some lovely accommodation for you even though this could be classed as a budget safari holiday.  In Saadani you're staying at the wonderfully welcoming Simply Saadani, in Nyerere you'll be staying in the gorgeous tented bandas of Sable Mountain Lodge just on the outskirts of the reserve, on the beach in Zanzibar you're in the comfortable Zanzibari.

In Nyerere you'll have a great chance to go on safari to spot the diverse species that abound in this wonderful reserve. From elephants to lions, wild dogs to hippos, fabulous birdlife and beautiful scenery, a safari in Nyerere is less busy than in the northern areas, plus you can go on a boat safari as well as on foot and on jeep game drives.

When you combine this great wildlife experience with time to relax on the beach and time to explore, this becomes a holiday which will be loved by anyone looking for a great African holiday.

It's good for children, perfect for honeymooners and couples, and would also make a good trip for a group of friends.
