On this 4 day safari to the Selous Game Reserve, departs from Dar es Salaam by vehicle and spends 3 nights at the Rufiji River Camp. It is a safari well worth doing if you find yourself in Dar es Salaam and have just a few days spare. This 4 Day Safari to Selous departs on request (subject to accommodation availability), and costing is based on the number of people.
Large numbers of elephants, black rhinoceroses, cheetahs, giraffes, hippopotamuses and crocodiles live in this immense sanctuary, which measures 50,000 km2 and is relatively undisturbed by human impact. The park has a variety of vegetation zones, ranging from dense thickets to open wooded grassland.
Depart from Dar es Salaam city centre by 4×4 to the Selous Game Reserve to start your African safari. Enjoy a late lunch at the Rufiji River Camp. Embark on an afternoon game drive in the reserve, and then return to Rufiji River Camp for dinner and overnight.
Enjoy a full day game viewing in the reserve. Participate in some classic – style game drives – exploring the bush in open 4 x 4 vehicles. Waterbuck, southern reed buck and bushbuck are common in the Selous. Rare sable antelope, lion and greater kudu also frequent this area. Meals and overnight at Rufiji River Camp.
After breakfast, accompany an armed ranger on a walking safari in the reserve. The sights and sounds (and smells) of a walking safari are a special treat that will live long in your memory. The thrill of creeping up to animals to shoot them with your camera is a great experience.
