Perfect for adventurous couples who want to splurge on luxury, romance and privacy on their Big 5 safari in Tanzania, this 9-day journey takes you to Ruaha and Selous National Parks – both are vast, undiscovered and untouched wilderness areas that are little-visited by safari-goers. Ruaha is the largest park in the country while Selous is also a huge area known for its large herds of elephants. Your lodges are intimate and cosy, offering luxury as well as excellent service to ensure you have the most personalised safari experience possible.
You will begin with an overnight stop in legendary Dar es Salaam – one of the gateway cities to the Tanzania safari circuit – which will give you time to relax and enjoy the local culture. From the city, fly to Ruaha, a Big 5 destination known for its unique landscape and beautiful, ancient baobab and sausage trees. Your second safari destination is the largest wildlife area in the world, the exquisite and vast Selous National Park.
Spending four days in each allows you to truly immerse yourself in the landscape and gives you ample time to utterly relax at every lodge. This is an ideal honeymoon or a safari option for those who enjoy getting off the beaten track and want superb wildlife experiences with few other travellers around.
