Day 1: SELOUS L,D

Transfer to DAR airport for scheduled flight to Selous, the largest game reserve in Africa. The landscape consists of extensive Miombo woodlands, grasslands and the flood-plains of the great Rufiji river. The whole area remains totally uninhabited apart from a few safari camps. The wildlife is truly wild and the “prehistoric” landscapes give the feeling of venturing into an un-known wilderness, much like Livingstone must have felt on his first explorations into Tanzania.

Spend the next 3 nights at Rufiji River camp

Day 2: SELOUS B,L,D

A full day game viewing with picnic lunch. Game is plentiful but requires more patience to spot than in the parks of Kenya and Northern Tanzania. Selous is home to huge populations of elephant and buffalo,as well as lion, leopard, giraffe, Sable antelope, Liechtenstein’s hartebeest and kudu.

Day 3: SELOUS B,L,D

An early morning walking safari accompanied by an armed ranger and professional guide. Learn about bushlore, territorial and feeding habits of the animals and many other points of interest.

Tall and ancient Borassic palms tower above the river banks, hippo and crocodile abound and the birdlife provides never ending colour and movement.

Two full days game viewing in Ruaha, noted for its large elephant population and uncommon species of antelope such as the kudu, Roan and sable Antelopes. hippo and crocodile abound in the great Ruaha river which flows along the park’s entire Eastern border, creating spectacular gorges and scenery. There are a number of photographic blinds overlooking waterholes where the animals can be observed from close-up.
