Fly from London Heathrow to Dar es Salaam via Doha with Qatar Airways.
This morning you will land into Dar es Salaam where you will clear immigration, collect your bags and make your way into the Arrivals Hall. There you will be met and transferred to the charter area for your flight down to the Selous Game Reserve. You will be met at the airstrip and transferred to Azura Selous Game Reserve where you will be spending the next 4 nights. Your time here will be at leisure to relax and enjoy the superb range of activities on offer from the lodge. The Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania is Africa’s largest game reserve with abundant game, from buffalos and lions to leopard and numerous species of wild dog. The landscape here has remained almost as it was before tourism began and the massive park has only a few accommodation options. Azura Selous Game Reserve is all about an authentic safari experience, about getting back to basics and tracking the animals through this vast and beautiful piece of African Wilderness. There are no predetermined schedules here, their guides and staff will discuss what you hope to achieve during your stay with us, and plan your days accordingly, from a full day out exploring all the reserve has to offer, to shorter safari experiences for those who also want to relax and just enjoy the beauty of the bush, or specially tailored safaris for families.

This morning you will enjoy a final morning activity from Azura Selous before returning to the lodge for brunch and some time to relax. You will then be flown back to Dar es Salaam where you will catch a TAM flight down to Pemba. From the airport you will be transferred to the AVANI Pemba Beach Hotel where you will be spending the night. The city of Pemba offers exquisite sandy beaches where you can walk for miles without encountering another soul, while a short boat trip off the mainland lie hundreds of small, idyllic islands. (BB)
Day 7- 13
After a leisurely breakfast you will be collected from the hotel and transferred back to Pemba Airport for the short helicopter ride up to Azura Quilalea where you will be spending the next 6 nights in a Kaskazi Villa. Azura Quilalea is located in the pristine Quirimbas Archipelago, a scattering of beautiful unspoilt islands in remote northern Mozambique. This lodge is a hidden gem, somewhere to retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, with a relaxed and understated ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway style that belies the comforts and experiences on offer in the 9 handcrafted seafront villas. A wholly uninhabited island paradise, ensuring total privacy and exclusivity for our guests, and surrounded by the magnificent pristine waters of a marine sanctuary. (FI)
After breakfast you will be collected from the hotel and transferred back to Pemba Airport by helicopter. From there you will catch a TAM flight to Dar es Salaam, connecting on to the evening Qatar Airways service to Doha where you will get the overnight connection to London Heathrow.
