3 nights at Ruaha River Lodge 

A year-round safari destination, Ruaha enjoys peak game viewing during the dry season (June - December) when the wildlife converges on shrinking water sources and become frequent visitors to the Great Ruaha River that runs in front of the lodge. Spend leisurely days watching their comings and goings from the comfort of your verandah.

3 nights at Katavi Wildlife Camp 

Known for its healthy numbers of lion and the vast herds of buffalo that roam the Katuma Plains, Katavi's peak game viewing season is from June to October. As the dry season sets in, the wildlife congregate into prolific herds. November to February sees the park becoming lush and green once more with the summer rains, bringing myriad birdlife back to the plains. The camp is closed in March, April and May each year as the roads are impassable in this high rainfall season.

3 nights at Rufiji River Camp 

Set high up on the banks of the Great Rufiji River, this camp is in the untamed Selous Game Reserve. Enjoy spectacular sunsets to a chorus of hippo grunts and birdsong. At Rufiji, the dry season extends from June until late October/early November. Summer rains are heavy but brief, bringing bright clear skies in their wake. Once again the river flows strongly and migrant birds return in their hundreds. Rufiji closes from the end of March until 1 June each year at the peak of the rainy season.

5 nights at Lazy Lagoon Island

Top your safari off with 5 nights at this tropical paradise. Kick back and relax with 9 km of uninterrupted beach and turquoise tropical waters on this private island in the Indian Ocean. Enjoy sun, snorkelling, exploring and relaxing with freshly-prepared meals your only interruption.
