Notes on the trips

THE SELOUS GAME PARK
The Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest protected areas on planet with a surface area of 45 thousand sq. km. Its name comes from Frederick Courtney Selous, the most famous white hunter in Africa. In this Game Reserve about 750 thousand mammals live including elephants, buffalos, hippos, crocodiles and wild dogs. If you are lucky you will also meet families of lions, leopards and also some cheetahs. More than 440 species of birds will charm birdwatching lovers.
It ‘s 'an uninhabited land, with no trace of human interference with the environment, where is concentrated the largest population of mammals in Africa. Together with the Mikumi National Park it  is one of the UNESCO's World Heritage.
The Selous is a tremendous opportunity for visitors looking for something more than a classic safari: in addition to the traditional game drives in 4x4 vehicles you will experience the best boat safaris and also walking safaris  allowed, of course accompanied by a skilled ranger. The reserve is crossed by three rivers: the Rufiji, the biggest river in Tanzania that creates very suggestive panoramas, the Beho Beho and the Ruaha River. These two main water suppliers  create channels, small islands and marshes. Speaking about interesting spots not to be missed: the Stiegler's Gorge, 100 meters deep, is simply extraordinary!!
During the dry season (from July to October) you can witness a unique event in the world: the great elephants‘ migration, one of the most important in Africa, moving from The Selous to the Niassa Game Reserve in Mozambique.


ZANZIBAR
si trova nelle zone tropicali, e perciò il clima è caldo e umido. Il mare è molto calmo, caldo e con una temperatura media di 20° C. L'isola è circondata dalla barriera corallina e, con la bassa marea, si può camminare lungo la barriera corallina in diversi luoghi. Riassumiamo di seguito i periodi migliori per andare a Zanzibar:
Da luglio a ottobre
è un buon periodo per andare, le piogge sono scarse, la temperatura media è di 25 º C con un basso tasso di umidità. Le brezze che spirano con l’avvicinarsi della notte forniscono un sollievo al caldo del giorno. Non ci sono molti turisti, così se qualcuno ama avere un po’ di privacy, è il periodo ideale (scartando ovviamente il mese di agosto).
Da novembre a marzo
sono i mesi migliori, dato che è piena estate; le piogge sono brevi ed è molto caldo e umido. Da dicembre a tutto febbraio l’affluenza di turisti è molto alta.
Da aprile a giugno
è una stagione tranquilla, a causa soprattutto delle Grandi Piogge, che mitigano l'arsura. La natura esplode, letteralmente, e le zone si tingono di verde. E' il periodo migliore per farsi una vacanza economica, molti villaggi turistici infatti sono chiusi e quindi la presenza turistica è notevolmente inferiore.
VILLA KIVA

Villa Kiva nasce da un desiderio di evasione, di scappare dal freddo e dal caos delle grandi città, per essere accolti in uno degli angoli più belli e incontaminati di Zanzibar.
Villa Kiva è formata da un corpo centrale, dove si trovano il bar, il salotto e la zona giorno e 11 camere doppie con bagno, situate in bungalows disposti ai lati della villa. Tutte le camere e le sale sono dotate di ventole e aria condizionata.
Inoltre è disponibile la televisione satellitare e il collegamento internet.
