Lesser known than their northern counterparts, the Selous & Ruaha can boast Africa’s largest animal populations. The diversity of landscapes – from desert-like savannah to wetlands, and from rocky outcrops to Baobab trees - offer ever-changing points of interest, and also translates into a wide array of A-list wildlife. Fun game drives and exciting boat safaris add to the adventure, making this a natural choice for families with older children or teenagers.

  • Day1 - 2
    Arrive in Dar Es Salaam and transfer to the Selous, located a 45-minute flight from Tanzania’s bustling capital in the south. Your home for the next few nights will be the effortlessly stylish Roho Ya Selous, where luxury tented suites offer that back-to-nature feel, but with all the comforts of an exceptional safari experience. A family tented suite offers interconnected rooms, which is especially important for children as the camp is not fenced and can be home to all manner of wildlife by night. A swimming pool is the perfect place to cool off after a hot afternoon on safari, and a gentle air conditioning facility makes it easy to slumber. As your family will enjoy privacy and tailored activities throughout, there is no age limit on game drives or boat safaris at Roho Ya Selous.

  • Day2 - 4
    The Selous is a true haven for safari-goers of an adventurous persuasion. Three times the size of South Africa’s iconic Kruger National Park and teeming with Africa’s largest and most undisturbed wildlife populations, it makes for an unrivalled safari experience. On safari in the Selous, you are unlikely to encounter other tourists, making for a peaceful and authentic experience. Children will enjoy the varied game activities and wildlife they will see as a result of its remarkable topography, from boat rides on the river to game drives in open-sided vehicles (which is not possible in Tanzania’s northern parks). Visiting in dry season is ideal, as a remarkable density of game congregates around the water sources, making for captivating and frequent game spotting that keeps children engaged.

  • Day4 - 7
    Contrast the lush and aqueous landscape of the Selous with Ruaha’s comparatively more desert-like conditions, home to savannah flats, rocky outcrops and surreal baobab trees. Ruaha National Park can also boast Tanzania’s largest elephant population – an enduring game favourite amongst adults and youngsters alike – and ostriches can also be seen dashing about here too. Combined with its other residents, including lions, leopards and crocodiles, families will be in their element. It’s time to play out some Out of Africa fantasies and start living in your own private residence in a game reserve the size of Slovenia: your home in Ruaha will be Jabali Private House. Jabali comes with a private chef guide and vehicle, meaning your family can set the pace each day. Jabali comes with a pool, and there is no age limit on bush walks, boat rides or game drives.

  • Day7 - 12
    After the best part of a week on safari, time to unwind at the beach is most certainly in order. A short hop from the mainland, Pemba Island rises out of the Indian Ocean with golden sands and verdant tropical forest. At boutique Manta Resort, families can recline in paradise, lounge by the infinity pool, snorkel on pristine reefs, or simply enjoy a novel on the beach as gentle sea breezes flit across the pages, on one of Tanzania’s almost mythological Spice Islands.

  • Day12
    Today marks your departure from Tanzania. It’s time to bid ocean breezes adieu and be transferred to Dar Es Salaam airport, ready to meet your international flight, most likely already reminiscing about your adventure.
