Transfer to Dar es Salaam Airport and board the scheduled flight to Siwandu Airstrip in Selous Game Reserve. Here you will be met by your driver/guide and have the opportunity to enjoy your first game drive on the way to the camp. Spend three unforgettable nights in this spectacular camp with delicious dining, cooling swimming pools and unforgettable tents with spacious verandahs overlooking the lake and outdoor stargazer showers. Take full advantage of viewing the abundant wildlife, either by boat, exploring the watery byways by weaving amongst the pods of hippo and crocodile lining the bank, or discover the landscape in open-sided 4WD vehicles, or wake early and venture into Africa’s largest wilderness on a foot, learn about the complex ecosystem that it embraces, encounter the thrills and be enthralled at the wonder of being at the heart of nature.

Selous is Africa’s largest game reserve, the size of Switzerland, and one of the last great wilderness areas on the continent with a diverse range of animals. Expect to see plenty of plains game and the major African mammals, including elephant, hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, lions, leopard as well as wild dog, as Selous is home to the world’s largest population of these endangered species.

Depart Siwandu after breakfast for your flight to Ruaha National Park. Fly through the clouds looking over awe-inspiring topography including baobab valleys, dramatic gorges and mountain ranges before landing at Jongomero Airstrip. Ruaha has gained a reputation amongst safari connoisseurs for its unique ecological and geographical character, offering a contrasting safari experience to Selous with a crosssection of species and a climate that is unique to the country.

Wake up to early morning tea or coffee in your sumptuous tent and look forward to another wonderful day exploring Ruaha National Park. Jongomero is situated far to the south of the park and is 70km from the nearest camp so essentially you have a park to yourself! Discover the wild, undulating, riverines and woodlands of Ruaha with experienced FGASA qualified guides by four seater 4WD vehicles or on game walks, which are an absolute must - navigate the dry river beds and listen to your expert guide tell you fascinating and often bizarre stories of the local flora, fauna, insects, birds and animals.

Refer to day 5 for todays itinerary.
Soak up the last morning of bush luxury with a piping hot breakfast at camp and a final safari activity before lunch and the inevitable goodbyes to the Jongomero Family. Fly back to Dar es Salaam and either follow on to the beach retreat of Ras Kutani, the sister camp to Siwandu and Jongomero, or hop on your connecting international flight with a lifetime of wonderful memories of your time in southern Tanzania.
