Tanzania safari in Selous, and on the beach on Zanzibar. A great trip for an unbeatable price.

  • One of our most popular safari and beach holidays
  • Great value, yet with excellent guiding and good accommodation

  • Boat safari on Lake Tagalala
  • Four nights in a Zanzibar beach resort

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 four nights on safari in Selous, and in Zanzibar you have four nights on the beach plus a night in Stone Town.

We've arranged some lovely accommodation for you even though this could be classed as a budget safari holiday. In Selous you'll be staying in the gorgeous tented bandas of Sable Mountain Lodge just on the outskirts of the reserve, on the beach you're in the comfortable Zanzibari, and in Stone Town it's the simple but friendly Dhow Palace.

In Selous 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 Selous 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 plus some time to explore the characterful streets of Zanzibar's Stone Town, 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.
