This itinerary offers a fantastic introduction to the world of family safari holidays and is ideal for those thinking of doing their first family safari holiday together or simply combining a short safari with a beach holiday.

A short three-night Tanzania safari is a more relaxing and cost effective option for those looking to experience a safari holiday as a family perhaps for the first time. With plenty of time on the exotic island of Zanzibar as well, this is a Tanzania family holiday with plenty to offer.

Begin the trip with a visit to the remote Selous Game Reserve, located in the south of Tanzania.

The Selous offers a unique experience in East Africa because here you can participate in open sided 4x4 game drives, guided walking safaris as well as some really amazing boating safaris on the Rufiji River which is the life blood of most animals in this reserve. It’s this diversity of activities as well as the richness of game that make a Selous safari such a great option.

From the Selous it’s a quick and scenic ‘hopper’ flight to Zanzibar where you can relax at one of Zanzibar’s many excellent boutique hotels - there are a handful which are great for families.

Travelling times are quick between each location on this itinerary, which means it’s easier on the whole family.
