SAFARI OVERVIEW

With HTT-Safaris, 6 Days safari in Selous and Mikumi Safari is probably the only classic Safari to Southern Circuit of Tanzania and we offer you the best of it. Starting and ending at Dar es Salaam this safari takes you to the Greater Selous Ecosystem and gives you the rare chance to experience real African Wilderness in the few untouched areas of Tanzania. Unlike the packed Tourist Areas of the North during the peak safari seasons, this safari gives you the opportunity to be in the secluded middle of an African wilderness with the whole Savannah almost for your own. This is the best place to be if you want that ‘away from the crowds’ safari.

Selous and Mikumi Safari from Zanzibar

The same safari can start and end at Zanzibar as we can also arrange a fly in safari straight into Selous Game Reserve. If you are flying from Zanzibar to the Selous Game Reserve you have two options to choose from. You can either choose to fly from Zanzibar to Selous Game Reserve where you will meet up with our safari guide or you can fly early in the morning to Dar es Salaam to start the safari by road together with our safari guide. The costs for these options differ. We normally help in arranging flights for those who would like to fly to Selous or to Dar es Salaam to start this 6Days Selous and Mikumi Safari. Let us know if you would like us to help in arranging your flight to Selous from Zanzibar Island.
