Trip Highlights

  • Wander Ruaha National Park in the early hours of the morning when big cats actively hunt under the cover of the night sky and nocturnal creatures come to life across the dimly lit bushveld
  • Cruise across Ruaha National Park’s rich environments to discover the fabulous creatures that inhabit its nourishing ecosystems, including elephants and hippos swimming in the rivers and wild dogs and birds of prey circling the open plains
  • Discover Ruaha National Park at night on a spotlighted safari showcasing more of the nocturnal animals when they are most active within the lush reserve
  • Swim in the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean, over the colorful coral reefs veiling the seafloor spreading from the shimmering white-sand shoreline of Matemwe in Zanzibar
  • Sail across the ocean, beyond the breaking waves, to prime fishing spots out at sea where you may relish a thrilling trawling experience with professional fishermen
  • Slowly cruise across the shimmering ocean on a traditional wooden dhow boat and revel in sundowners while the sunset blazes across the horizon
  • Peruse the dense Jozani Forest’s lush wilderness in search of fascinating flora and fauna en route to cascading waterfalls, where you may enjoy a scrumptious picnic beneath the emerald canopy
