This extensive and highly varied air safari begins with a night in a stone-built ‘cottage’ room on the shores of Lake Duluti, which lies amid coffee plantations in the foothills of Mount Meru. Next, a short flight takes you into the heart of the mighty Serengeti, whose name means ‘the place of the endless plains’ and which is home to unrivalled herds of migratory plains game and their attendant cast of predators. Here, you will stay in classic tented accommodation and can enjoy a whole day on safari in Tanzania’s largest and most famous national reserve before flying on to Africa’s largest and least-visited reserve, the legendary Selous. Here you will be accommodated in the exceptionally luxurious Mivumo River Lodge, which overlooks the Rufiji River, and offers a unique selection of river safaris, river-side sundowners and guided walks. Finally, fly north-east and over the Indian Ocean to the romantic island of Zanzibar where the superb Serena Zanzibar Inn stands in the centre of Stone Town, one of Africa’s most ancient Swahili settlements.
