While khaki pants and desert boots might not be most ladies’ leisurewear of choice, with The Selous Safari Company, there are plenty of opportunities to don the bikini, dress up for dinner and even enjoy the ‘white fluffy spa towel’ feeling, that can only come after a luxurious massage or facial. Each of the properties in southern Tanzania offer a crystal clear private pool, a luxurious dining experience and, at the beach retreat of Ras Kutani, there is even a small spa.
However, these safaris aren’t just for girls – let’s not forget the camps are situated in one of Africa’s most wild and remote regions, home to a wealth of game including lion, leopard, elephant and more. There is plenty to keep the wildest of men entertained, with 4X4 game drives, fishing in man-eating croc infested lakes and overnight fly-camping all available!
