Discover the wildlife of Ruaha over 3 nights at a camp which stretches along the Great Ruaha River bank, and in the dry seasons, you need almost not leave the camp to see good quantities of game, as they concentrate along the river to drink. Then discover complete luxury and the rare island beauty of Zanzibar with a 7 night stay at a beach garden hideaway on powder white sands.
Built out of local stone and thatch, Ruaha River Lodge is built around natural kopjes and capitalises on it's exceptional position on a bend in the Great Ruaha River. Whilst it is true that Ruaha can be visited at any time of year, one of the best times for game viewing at this particular camp is during the dry season from June to December when the wildlife converges on the dwindling water reserves notably the river in front of the lodge. Ruaha has a large lion population as well as wild dog, leopard, cheetah and hyena. Elephants are easily seen as well as kudu, roan, sable and eland antelope to mention just a few. Many of the guides at Ruaha River Lodge have worked in the Park for years honing their knowledge of the Ruaha Park.
Your 7 nights at the beach is at the aptly named Sunshine Hotel. This a magical place where you will experience the charm of a tropical island. Located in Matemwe on the north-east coast of Zanzibar, the hotel is eco friendly, stylish and cosy, with a unique chilled-out ambiance to make you feel happy and relaxed. Set right on the unspoiled white sandy beach, lined with palm trees and washed by warm, turquoise waters of Indian Ocean, it's a perfect getaway from every-day life.
