A Week of Wildlife combining the Serengeti and Selous
Including time at two of Tanzania’s best game viewing destinations, this short week-long safari combines game viewing activities in both the Serengeti and Selous, Africa’s largest game reserve.
During this exciting holiday you’ll fly on light aircraft between locations; you'll stay in two of Serena's most luxurious properties. Kirawira Camp stands high on a ridge, commanding panoramic views over the endlessly rolling reaches and volcanic reefs of the Serengeti National Park and is the epitome of colonially-styled safari luxury. In the Selous stay at the stunning new boutique eco-lodge, Mivumo River Lodge, located on the banks of the Rufiji River.
This holiday is based on opulent accommodation and is ideal for couples and honeymooners. If you’d prefer more or less time in either the Serengeti or Selous just contact us for a tailored quote.

Responsible Tour Operating in Tanzania
Specialist Tanzania works in close partnership with several locally owned and managed companies in Tanzania. We feel this approach has a more direct benefit on the local distribution of income from tourism. We support and fully endorse the recruitment and training of local guides, local group tour managers, drivers and representation staff. With our guiding principle of employing local people wherever possible our guests see a direct benefit in the improved local knowledge of our local team, whether that be knowledge of flora, fauna, history or just general Tanzanian life. Through this approach we can also maximise the amount of your tourism revenue that is delivered directly into the heart of the local economy.
Specialist Tanzania is also determined to do what we can to help minimise any negative impacts on the environmental, wildlife and cultural welfare of Tanzania through promoting responsible visitor behaviour; promoting waste reduction; facilitating cultural exchange between guests and local communities; supporting local businesses, goods and services; encouraging guests to eat local foods rather than imported foods; encouraging the conservation of natural resources like electricity and water; and promoting the importance of protecting the local environment and nature.
