Safari, Sand and Spice

Safari, Sand and Spice Overview

A Tanzania safari and beach holiday which won't blow your budget, and yet which is great quality and great fun. It is our most popular trip in Africa, and for good reason!

We've made this holiday to offer you a really great experience in southern Tanzania at a very good price. You have 4 nights on safari in Selous, and in Zanzibar you have 4 nights on the beach plus 2 nights in Stone Town.

We've arranged some lovely accommodation for you even though this could be classed as a budget safari holiday. In Selous you'll be staying in the gorgeous tented bandas of Sable Mountain Lodge just on the outskirts of the reserve, on the beach you're in the comfortable Zanzibari, and in Stone Town it's the simple but friendly Dhow Palace.

In Selous you'll have a great chance to go on safari to spot the diverse species that abound in this wonderful reserve. From elephants to lions, wild dogs to hippos, fabulous birdlife and beautiful scenery, a safari in Selous is less busy than in the northern areas, plus you can go on a boat safari as well as on foot and on jeep game drives.

When you combine this great wildlife experience with time to relax on the beach plus the adventure of a train journey across Africa, and some time to explore the characterful streets of Zanzibar's Stone Town, this becomes a holiday which will be loved by anyone looking for a great African holiday. It's good for children, perfect for honeymooners and couples, and would also make a good trip for a group of friends.
