Limited time for a safari?

Hi we are 2 couples looking at a 4 day safari in Tanzania, we will be coming over from Zanzibar(maybe the ferry). Any recommendations on who to get hold of for this short trip? Not wanting to "break the bank". Would love to do a trip where a river cruise would be involved. 3rd - 6th July.

A good idea if coming from Zanzibar/Dar would be the Selous in Southern Tanzania. It's easy to get to from Dar/Zanzibar on a short 45min flight. Most of the camps are located along the Rufuji river which is one of East Africa's largest. This will allow you to enjoy boat safaris as well as walking safaris and game drives so pretty diverse activities. This type of safari will also be very cost effective. Try Lake Manze camp or Rufiji River Camp with are affordable even on the rand!

would recommend the southern parks, as you will enjoy a boat ride in the Rufiji river or Lake manze and plus game drives as well.

Look at Adventure Camps (and their sister company - Coastal Aviation, for the flights. They could have you in the Selous with a 20, and 35 minute, flight via Dar).

They run Lake Manze and some others, and boat trips (not really river cruises, but small boats with outboard motors) are a regular offering.
