An Intimate Touch of Tanzania
Fly-in safari, 9 days / 8 nights
Start anticipating your sea and safari adventure with a short summary of what you can expect each day to bring.
This adventure begins and ends at Dar es Salaam International Airport in Tanzania.
DAY 1: DAR ES SALAAM
On arrival at Dar es Salaam International Airport you will be warmly welcomed by a member of the &Beyond team, who will drive you to your hotel.
Despite its name, which means "abode of peace" in Arabic, Dar es Salaam is Tanzania's largest and busiest city. Situated right on the Indian Ocean, it is the ideal place from which to access both the wilderness areas and the beaches of Tanzania and Zanzibar. Most visitors en route to the better-known Tanzanian attractions are surprised by the charm of this unassuming city. Attractions include the beautiful beaches of Kunduchi, Mjimwena and Mbwa Maji, Dar es Salaam's spectacular harbour and the local markets.
Spend the night in a luxury suite at The Oyster Bay. Your stay is on a fully inclusive basis.
Day 2 - 4: Selous Game Reserve
You will be driven back to Dar es Salaam International Airport, where you will board a flight to the Selous Game Reserve. On arrival, a vehicle will be waiting to drive you to your lodge.
Secluded and off the beaten track, the Selous Game Reserve is a slice of untamed wilderness, teeming with a spectacular array of fauna and flora. Its dramatic landscapes and great diversity of wildlife earned it its World Heritage Site status. The Selous is one of the few big game reserves to allow hiking, offering the chance to explore its pristine landscapes on foot.
Relax for three nights in the intimate safari retreat of Beho Beho. Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, teas and coffees, scheduled safari activities and laundry.
Day 5 - 8: &Beyond Mnemba Island
Return to the airstrip for a flight to Zanzibar International Airport. On arrival, a member of the &Beyond team will take you on the road and boat trip to Mnemba Island.
The pristine white beaches of Mnemba Island combine with the deep blue ocean to make this intimate island a private tropical paradise. Magnificent coral reefs create an underwater wonderland that lures guests to explore the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Scores of snorkelling and diving sites form a gateway to the staggering diversity of marine life that inhabits the surrounding coral atoll.
Indulge in four nights in an ensuite banda at Mnemba Island Lodge. Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, tea and coffee, emergency medical evacuation insurance, laundry and a selection of daily adventures. Adventures include swimming, snorkelling, windsurfing, kayaking, fly-fishing and scuba diving (two dives per day if in possession of a valid dive certificate). A variety of diving courses and deep sea fishing adventures is available at an additional cost.
Day 9: Departure
Hop aboard a boat for your journey back to the shores of Zanzibar, where a vehicle will be waiting to drive you to Zanzibar International Airport. A flight will be waiting to take you back to Dar es Salaam, where your adventure with us will end.
