We will have booked you into one of their four spacious Upepo Suites, set up on the hillside for seclusion with sweeping views, private plunge pool and verandah. Local materials have been used in the construction of the lodge and a soaring thatched roof gives it a traditional Swahili style but contemporary touches make these suites very special.

DAYS 4 to 8
With your batteries recharged and the African bush calling, it is time to fly into the SELOUS GAME RESERVE, Africa's largest, to the wonderfully traditional Siwandu. It is located the shores of Lake Nzerakera, part of an interconnecting series adjoining the Great Rufiji River. The permanent water attracts game and large numbers of water-birds and is a haven for hippo.
The originally designed safari tents are set on wooden platforms widely spaced through the natural bush ensuring privacy. The tents all have two verandahs, one facing sunrise and the other sunset! The main dining and sitting area is also on a raised platform giving excellent views and bird-watching opportunities.
From camp, you will explore the reserve in open safari vehicles, on foot and by boat on the river.
DAYS 9 to 13
Your final destination is the unspoilt PEMBA ISLAND where you will stay at romantic Fundu Lagoon in a spacious tented room nestling under palm trees that fringe the idyllic white sand beach.
A variety of activities await you - scuba dive and snorkel at top sites, explore mangrove channels by kayak, discover historic ruins or the forest wildlife on foot, take cruises In a traditional dhow, charter the 30' catamaran and go fishing with local fishermen. Or simply relax and make use of the stunning infinity pool, spa and no less than three bars, and enjoy glorious fusion cuisine served in the open-sided dining room, at the jetty bar, on the beach or from your own picnic basket. Spoilt for choice?
You will fly back via Dar es Salaam to Nairobi and onwards overnight to London
Take your own private house complete with butler, housekeeper and a Swahili atmosphere. Set a little back from a white sand beach on the east coast of ZANZIBAR, Dar House is the perfect hideaway. The swimming pool meanders through palm trees and there is a shady terrace from which to marvel at the azure colour of the ocean with the slanting sails of local fishing dhows completing the romantic picture. The house would suit a Honeymoon couple, two couple or even a family.
