Itinerary

Day 1 : Fly Dar to Selous, afternoon game drive

Visiting: Dar to Selous

Fly from Dar es Salaam to the Selous Game Reserve and settle into the Rufiji River Camp (flight not included). Arrive in time for an afternoon game drive today.

Located on the shores of this tranquil year-round waterway, the Rufiji River Camp, with just 20 semi-luxury tents, gives guests a front-row seat to the wonderful wilderness and ample wildlife of the region. Animals often come down to the river to drink, offering visitors a priviledged show from the camp's overlooks. Hundreds of hippos line the river and groups of crocodiles sun themselves on its sunny banks.

Day 3 : Selous, morning and afternoon safari activities

Visiting: Selous

One of the most exciting opportunities for the more adventurous is a walking safari. The Selous Game Reserve is one of the few parks in Tanzania where visitors can travel on foot and relive the experience of some of the early explorers. Choose a general wildlife trail or one that is focused on a special interest. Of course, an armed ranger will accompany you at all times. It is the one of the best ways to fully appreciate the landscape and learn about the wildlife from their point of view.

In the afternoon, explore the far reaches of the Rufiji River's many lakes and tributaries on a boat safari. Visit numerous points and look out for the animals that make this river their home. End the day watching a magnificent sunset paint the river in vibrant colors from your floating vantage point.

  • Meals: BLD
