Tanzania's Northern Safari Circuit includes some of the most famous and remarkable sights in the world, such as the annual Wildebeest Migration and the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater.
The Selous Game Reserve is the largest conservation area on the planet with the exceptions of the polar regions. Just a 40 minute flight from Dar Es Salaam this is an ideal opportunity to make your weekend special. Going for a luxury safari option ensures a truly excellent level of food and service and, naturally, a pool to relax by.

All the Parks visited are really wonderful, especially Ruaha and the "king" Katavi that worth absolutely the long trip (at least in our point of view). Yahaya and Salim are like two friends.
