Selous safari and zanzibar holiday package
If you’re looking to get away from it all, you can’t get much further than this. Combining the spectacular Selous Game Reserve, a World Heritage Site and the largest expanse of game reserve in Africa, with a short stay in the ancient Stone Town, flanked by an exotic mix of sultan’s palaces, Portuguese forts, ancient dhow harbours, and bright bazaars, and ending with 5 nights at a magical resort nestled on the beachfront of a 25 acre stretch of tropical gardens.
The Mivumo Serena Camp is the ultimate wilderness retreat. Early each morning and evening, you’ll set off in search of African wildlife, scouring the bush from your jeep. Then, after this exhausting excitement, you’ll set course for Zanzibar, the exotic island of spice. Staying in Stone Town, the Zanzibar Serena Hotel is a haven of tranquillity and opulence amongst the bustle of one of Africa’s most ancient and most enchanting towns.
Finally, head for the white sands, where you’ll stay at the very edge of a beautiful, wide tropical beach. Here, you can soak up the tropical sunshine, try a sunset sailing trip on a traditional dhow and enjoy a spa treatment. What more could you ask?
