Day 1: Dar Es Salaam – Ruaha National Park

After you arrival in Dar Es Salaam (you might need to overnight there after your international flight) you will be boarding the flight to Ruaha National Park. Accommodation at the selected camp and you will be experiencing your first safari in the afternoon. Large areas of Ruaha are unexplored and undeveloped, one of the park management’s goals is to preserve as much of the territory as possible in a pristine and undisturbed state. The landscape is various, from the band of green that clings to the banks of the Great Ruaha River as it winds its way through the rocky outcrops and mountains, to the arid scrublands and grassland to lush green leaves and grasses once the rains begin. Dinner and overnight stay at the lodge.

Day 2/3: Ruaha National Park

These two days are dedicated to safaris and game viewing exploring the park with expert professional guides.
Ruaha varied and rich territory boasts more than 1400 plant species, making it the perfect place for animals such as the black antelope, both the lesser and greater kudu, eland (the largest antelope in the world), lions, cheetahs, leopards, crocodiles and African hunting dogs. The best period to watch the bird migration is from November to March, and at this time of the year it is even possible to see the Sooty Falcon, which breeds in the Sahara and Middle East, and Eleanora’s Falcon, which breeds north of the Mediterranean.

Day 5/7: Fanjove Private Island

You will be exploring the island and the amazing nature.
Fanjove Lodge offers six Eco Bandas, each with an ensuite bathroom open to the sky for hot showers under the stars. The individual Bandas are distributed along the main beach to guarantee privacy, each with a view of the ocean. All have been designed with the environment in mind, specifically to have the lowest impact on the island and are powered singularly by solar power. Banda in Ki-Swahili means “Hut” and, in a way, it describes well your accommodation. The shape resembles the Dhow sail (Dhow are the local traditional sailing boats, that you will see almost at any time when looking at the sea). It is all made of wood (only planted wood has been used, and no hard wood has been cut from forests) and makuti (palm leaves). Only the bathroom, because of its necessities, has been built in concrete, but shaped to be inserted in harmony with the rest of the building. To make the best of the view at the most the banda is designed to be completely open at its front. Doors and curtains, in different combinations, at our guests desire, protect from wind and sun: there are two lateral doors with latches at the bottom and a rope to secure them on the outer structure of the Banda; and a central door which works similarly to a lift bridge: it is connected with a rope to a pulley (a traditional system used for the local boat’s sail). The curtain’s fabric and the ropes are the same used in local dhows to make sails and boat ropes. Should our guests wish to enjoy the view from a higher point you are welcome to go upstairs onto the balcony. The 6 lights of your Banda are powered by a solar panel on the top of the makuti roof.
Activities include: fishing, diving, kayak, dhow sailing, sand bank excursion at low tide to a secluded sand bank that offers great snorkeling and the chance to have a local lunch with grilled fish prepared privately right in front of you. Relax in the shade and wait for dolphins to come by, or jump in the water to cool off, until the sand bank disappears underwater with the incoming tides. Furthermore the lodge organizes interesting nature trails in the island to discover its history and the local communities.
