The Selous and the Serengeti are Tanzania’s flagship wildlife destinations that are almost opposites. The Selous is one of the biggest reserves in the world and at least three times the size of the Serengeti but gets a fraction of its visitors. The Serengeti, of course, is home to the first half of the annual Wildebeest Migration, a sight seen nowhere else in the country that attracts safari lovers from across the world. Fortunately, this tour lets you have it all: the remoteness of Selous, the action of the Serengeti and – the cherry on the top – accommodation in two of Tanzania’s best private safari villas.
The benefits of exclusive-use villas and lodges are manifold. You and your family or friends are guaranteed privacy, and can truly kick of your shoes and makes yourselves at home. Even better, you decide when you would like your meals, how long game drives should be and what activities you would like to undertake – choose from boating, guided walks or cultural visits, all under the watchful eye of your personal host and game ranger.
Tanzanian safaris often kick off in the coffee-growing town of Arusha and yours is no different. After a refreshing night at Rivertrees Country Inn, you will fly to Mkombe’s House, Lamai in the Serengeti and then head to Kiba Point in the Selous, making for a sensational nine days in Africa.
