Short and Sweet: Selous- 5 days

Journey into the Selous Game Reserve, Africa’s largest protected wildlife area.  Fly into a pristine wilderness, far off-the-beaten track, and enjoy unmatched wildlife experiences, searching for animals on game drives, boat excursions and bush walks.  Explore the park’s diverse habitats - grass plains, flourishing wetlands, lagoons, lakes, and dense forest.  Observe great herds of elephants on the banks of the Rufiji River.  Choose one of three exclusive, remote accommodations, from ultimate luxury in the bush- spacious safari tents, cottages with private verandahs and alfresco showers, swimming pools, and billiard tables- to “fly-camping” in  simple mobile tents on a walking safari, for a more authentic safari, sleeping under the stars.   No matter which accommodations you choose, Selous offers an unforgettable adventure few tourists are lucky enough to experience.

 

 

 

ITINERARY

This safari begins and ends at Dar es Salaam International Airport.

Day 1
Dar Es Salaam - Selous

On arrival at Dar es Salaam International Airport you will be warmly welcomed by our representative, who will drive you to your hotel. Despite its name, which means 'abode of peace' in Arabic, Dar es Salaam is Tanzania's largest and busiest city. It is the country's most important business and commercial hub and is situated right on the Indian Ocean. It is the ideal place from which to access both the wilderness areas and the beaches of Tanzania and Zanzibar. Most visitors en route to the better-known Tanzanian attractions are surprised by the charm of this unassuming city and find themselves yearning for more time to explore its hidden secrets.

Spend the night in a luxury suite at The Oyster Bay. Your stay is on a fully inclusive basis.
