A beach and bush holiday with extra beach - because tracking lions through Ruaha can be exhausting! Begin the trip fighting jet lag and lazing by a pristine beach on the Swahili Coast, before embarking on the ultimate southern circuit safari in Ruaha National Park and the Selous Game Reserve. Then, to wind back down again before you head home, end up on the tropical island of Zanzibar.
This morning you will head to the Selous Game Reserve, a bona-fide UNESCO World Heritage Site situated south-east of Ruaha. To get there you'll be boarding one of the little planes you'll have become accustomed to by now for a short flight.
After being met by a driver and escorted the last leg of your journey by jeep you'll arrive at Siwandu, on the banks of Lake Nzerakera. After checking in, sit and sip a cool drink on the wooden veranda as the sun sets and wildlife saunters past - we're talking safari armchair style!
