Spread across vast expanses of desert-like savannah, wetlands, rocky outcrops, and iconic Baobab trees, Selous and Ruaha National Parks offer a landscape like no other.

Families with older children or teenagers will delight in the variety of activities available in Selous and Ruaha. Join thrilling game drives through the parks' diverse habitats, where every sighting promises an exhilarating adventure. From the thrill of tracking lions on the prowl to the excitement of spotting herds of elephants grazing peacefully in the distance, there's no shortage of wildlife encounters to keep the whole family entertained.

For a unique perspective on the parks' abundant wildlife, embark on an exciting boat safari along the Rufiji River in Selous. Glide past sunbathing crocodiles, bathing hippos, and colorful birdlife as you explore the waterways and wetlands that make up this diverse ecosystem. With the guidance of experienced boat captains and knowledgeable guides, you'll gain insights into the intricate web of life that thrives along the riverbanks.

At Exodus Safaris, we believe in providing our guests with unforgettable safari experiences that cater to the needs and preferences of every traveler. Join us as we journey into the heart of Selous and Ruaha National Parks, where adventure awaits amidst the beauty of Africa's wilderness.

Tour Plan

Day 01 Arrival in Dar es Salam & Air Transfer to Nyerere National Park

Embark on a short 45-minute flight from Tanzania's vibrant capital, Dar es Salaam, to reach the breathtaking Nyerere National Park. Prepare to immerse yourself in the serene ambiance of Siwandu Camp, nestled along the shores of Lake Nzerakera. This exclusive tented camp offers a luxurious safari experience complete with all modern amenities, including family tented suites featuring interconnected rooms tailored for your young ones.

Indulge in some relaxation and rejuvenation at the main area or take a refreshing dip in the tranquil shaded pool after your adventurous safari outings. While children over the age of six are warmly welcomed, those aged 16 and above can partake in thrilling walking safaris and fly-camping activities.

Day 02-03 On Safari in Nyerere National Park

Nyerere National Park promises an unparalleled safari adventure for intrepid explorers. Spanning three times the size of Kruger National Park, it boasts abundant populations of Africa's majestic wildlife.

Exploring Nyerere, visitors revel in the tranquility of unspoiled landscapes, rarely encountering other tourists. Children, in particular, delight in the diverse wildlife and array of activities, from serene boat trips along the river to thrilling game drives in open vehicles.

For the best wildlife sightings, the dry season (July-October) is optimal. During this period, a multitude of animals gathers around water sources, offering captivating opportunities for children to observe nature's wonders up close.

Day 04 Fly to Ruaha National Park

This morning, you'll transition from Siwandu to the nearby airstrip for a 90-minute flight to Ruaha. Unlike Nyerere's lush and humid landscapes, Ruaha offers an arid environment characterized by expansive savannahs, rugged rock formations, and iconic baobab trees.

Ruaha National Park boasts Tanzania's largest elephant population, captivating adults and children alike with its abundant wildlife. Upon arrival, you'll be welcomed at Ikuka Safari Camp, perched atop a scenic escarpment amidst the park, offering breathtaking views. These accommodations cater to families of up to five, welcoming children aged seven and older.

Day 05-06 On Safari in Ruaha National Park

Throughout your park visit, you'll have the opportunity to engage in twice-daily activities. Mainly, we encourage participation in game drives aboard open-sided vehicles, although walking safaris are available for guests aged 16 and above. The park boasts a remarkable array of wildlife, including lions, elephants, leopards, and crocodiles, ensuring families can fully immerse themselves in the experience.

Day 07 Fly to Zanzibar

After an unforgettable safari adventure, it's time to unwind and bask in the sunshine on the beach. Ikuka Safari Lodge will arrange transportation to the airport for your domestic flight to the picturesque Zanzibar. As you approach the island, you'll be greeted by the brilliant blue sky and the breathtakingly clear waters surrounding it.

Upon arrival, a driver will welcome you and escort you to the luxurious Baraza Resort & Spa, where you'll spend five nights in a lavish Two-Bedroom Villa. The journey from the airport to the stunning Michamvi Peninsula on the eastern coast of the island takes approximately an hour, where you'll discover the all-inclusive resort nestled amidst lush gardens and a pristine stretch of beach.

Day 08-11 Beach Time on Zanzibar

Baraza features 30 villas, each with its unique style and size, making it an ideal destination for the perfect family retreat. The Garden View Villa and Sultan’s Sea Facing Villa offer two bedrooms each, ensuring a comfortable and luxurious experience for families.

The resort provides numerous family-friendly amenities, including a picturesque sandy beach, a serene lagoon, a refreshing swimming pool, lush gardens, and a water sports center with a dedicated children's club. For added peace of mind, babysitting and childminding services are also available.

Families can immerse themselves in the enchanting beauty of Tanzania’s Spice Islands, whether by lounging by the infinity pool, exploring the crystal-clear reefs while snorkeling, or simply unwinding with a good book on the beach, accompanied by the gentle sea breeze.

Day 12 Transfer to Zanzibar Airport

Before departing Tanzania, indulge in the ocean breeze one last time as you make your way to Zanzibar Airport. Take this moment to ready yourself for your upcoming international flight, reflecting on the cherished memories of your time spent in this stunning destination.
