THE LUXURY Explore the relatively untouched-by-tourism wilderness of Southern Tanzania, where the boutique Selous Safari Camp, set on the shores of Lake Nzerakera, offers guests prime access to the Selous Game Reserve. The reserve boasts a birdwatcher’s paradise and one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife on the African continent, providing haven for over a million large animals, including half of Tanzania’s elephant population. At the Jongomero Camp, meanwhile, a 1.5-hour flight away, this solitary camp in the region is set on the doorway of a remote section of Ruaha National Park, known for its diverse flora and fauna, with elephants, zebra, and giraffe just a few of the native species to call the reserve home.
THE VALUE Africa Odyssey has put together an exclusive deal for ShermansTravel.com readers for travel this June or July, featuring 32 percent off 8-night safari packages that incorporate stays at both the Selous Safari Camp and Jongomero Camp. Rates start from $4,797 per person and represent a sizable savings of $2,279 per person. Rates includes internal flight transfers, four nights at both safari camps with full board; game-viewing drives and walking and boat safaris; and concession and park entrance fees.
THE CATCH The package price excludes international flights, which can easily top $1,500 round-trip from East Coast departure points. Also note that early June marks the tail end of rainy season, so guests who opt to travel during that time frame can expect the odd rain shower.
