Bush & Beach

The Ultimate East Africa Combo

One of Africa's true joys is the luxury of (wide-open) space. Gather a group and we will place you in secluded exclusivity in the heart of Tanzania's wilderness paired with an private-hire villa on the exotic beach sands of Zanzibar.

A multi-generational family holiday takes careful planning to ensure it runs smoothly. For this trip to Tanzania, experience the untouched wilderness of Africa’s second largest national park, Ruaha, where safaris take you deep into its expansive ecosystem, while staying in your own private safari residence. Here big wildlife roam and with few visitors, game sightings are impressive. Lion stalk the plains alongside cheetah and leopard with wild dog joining the fray. On a smaller scale, over 500 hundred bird species call Ruahu home. Diversity is Ruaha’s calling card and you’ll see a profusion of wildlife in this lesser-known national park.

For your finale, luxuriate in a private villa on the white sands of Zanzibar, a tropical contrast to the earthy tones of your remote safari.

"Done right and you’ll be privy to a sensational African adventure that will be remembered for years to come. Let us take the reins in planning this special trip, allowing you to completely relax and focus on make memories."

Jabali Private House - Ruaha

“Ideal for a family looking for seclusion and excellent safari in the bush, Jabali Private House provides the perfect setting.”

A magical location in southern Tanzania  greets you at sophisticated Jabali Private House (sister property to Jabali Ridge), surrounded by the sturdy majesty of towering baobab trees. Deep in Ruaha National Park, Tanzania’s best kept safari secret, the house exists in its own private idyll with views that stretch out endlessly onto the Ikuka escarpment.

Having a safari lodge all to yourself mean that you call the shots with regards to your day-to-day itinerary. Want to go out all day tracking big game and following huge herds of elephants with picnics in the bush and sundowners in epic spots? No problem. Fancy a down day at the house, swimming in the pool and enjoying a drawn-out lunch – just say the word. Your team of staff, chefs, drivers and guides are on hand to bring your African safari to life – you won’t be disappointed.

Zuri Zanzibar

Zuri Zanzibar Villa

"With the azure Indian Ocean stretching out in front of you, choose to do very little or immerse yourself in both over- and underwater activities."

From Ruaha, take a small plane to Dar-es-Salaam and transfer onto Zanzibar, for a visual sea-change from the earthy tones of safari wilderness to the bright, tropical hues of the Indian Ocean. Your home will be a Zuri Zanzibar villa, set beachside on Zanzibar’s northeast coast, with a private pool, spacious living areas, a butler and the powder-soft sand just steps away.

Occupying a its own section of beach, Zuri is great for independent families, as the luxe contemporary ambience appeals to teens and a short stroll leads you to beach bars and cool chill-out spots. There is also a daily kids’ program including treasure hunts, bracelet crafts and Afro dance workshops and plenty of complimentary watersports such as paddleboards, snorkelling gear kit and kayaks to have fun with. Head out further onto the ocean for Hobei sailing, speedboat snorkelling trips, deep sea fishing and scuba diving.  A family dhow trip is a perfect way to close out the day at sunset, accompanied by cold drinks and nibbles. Back on land, the three-bed villas await – roomy and stylishly appointed, each bedroom has its own spacious ensuite bathroom with outdoor shower and bathtub.
