Embark on an African adventure to experience the best of Southern Tanzania, featuring incredible wildlife sightings, walking and boat safaris and a diverse landscape all to be explored.


Day 1 - 4: Ruaha National Park, Tanzania

  • The Ruaha is an amazing habitat where east Africa meets southern Africa, with so much diversity and exceptional volume of wildlife
  • Jongomero Camp; where our founder Henry chose to stay on his honeymoon

Enjoy the remote setting of Jongomero Camp, situated in the south of Ruaha National Park, where you’ll feel like you have the entire bush to yourself

Begin your safari in Tanzania’s largest National Park where you’ll spend three nights at Jongomero Camp. Situated in the southern region of the park along the banks of a seasonal river, this luxury tented camp is wonderfully secluded and boasts outstanding bush views from your private veranda. Isolated from well-trodden safari routes, immerse yourself in the raw beauty of Ruaha’s wilderness on game drives, bush walks and walking safaris, spotting wildlife, birdlife, flora and fauna along the way. We can arrange a fly-camping experience in the depths of the wilderness where you’ll sleep under a blanket of stars.

Day 4 - 7: Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania

  • We love walking amongst the Selous’s doom palms along the lake shore
  • Hop on a boat to visit spectacular carmine bee-eater colonies

From watching wildlife pass by your tent to spotting riverine wilderness on the lake shores, the Selous offers endless adventure.

Continue your safari by taking a small flight to the Selous Game Reserve where you’ll spend three nights at Siwandu Camp. Located on Lake Nzerakera, the camp is ideally located for a variety of activities and memorable wildlife encounters with hippos, lions and elephants. From your veranda, watch as the bush awakens with wildlife ambling past your luxury canvas tent. Venture into Selous’s wilderness on daily game drives and walking safaris. Depending on the season, float down the Rufiji river delta or sip sundowners on a pontoon boat on Lake Nzerakera with riverine wilderness as your backdrop.

Day 7 - 12: Fanjove Private Island, Tanzania

  • Our favourite white-sand beach lodge for post-safari rest and relaxation
  • You must experience a dolphin safari for an almost perfect sighting success rate.

Unwind with an exclusive remote private island experience where marine life and birdlife inhabit in abundance.

Swap safari for beach life by taking a short flight to the SongoSongo Archipelago. From here, a speedy boat trip will drop you on Fanjove Island where you’ll spend your final five nights in an eco banda on a white sand beach. Enjoy this exclusive island experience where Fanjove’s palm-fringed beach acts as the perfect paradise hideaway. Dive into aquatic adventures whilst snorkeling around the coral reef, sailing in a traditional dhow boat or spotting bottlenose dolphins and migrating humpback whales. The team can also arrange a secluded sand bank experience where you’ll feast on freshly grilled fish prepared before your eyes.
