Travel Information

Travel and Transfers

Our office is located in Dar es Salaam on the east coast of Tanzania.

On your arrival you will be transferred from Julius Nyerere International Airport (preferred airport for your arrival and departure, Dar es Salaam) to a hotel of your choice (see hotel options).

A photographic or scenic safari can be booked either before or after your fishing safari. Transport to the camp site constitutes either a chartered plane or by road (500km).

The charter is by a reputable company and will take 1.5 hours with an additional 2 hour drive in the Selous Game Reserve (costs on enquiry). Charter flights are the preferred means of transport due to the condition of the roads.

Arrival at Dar es Salaam before 15h00 can enable a transfer by charter to the camp on the same day. By road it will take between eight and ten hours.

The drive will take you through beautiful African countryside and the Mikumi National Park where you will see elephant, buffalo and the occasional lion.
