Day 1: Fly to Selous game reserve

Today you fly from Dar es Salaam to Selous game reserve. This is the largest game reserve in Africa and a true un-spoiled safari experience. After your short flight you will be picked from the airstrip by the driver/guide from Selous River Camp. He will take you to this nice mid-range accommodation where you will have lunch.

After a nice lunch you will start your first activity, a boat safari on the Rufiji River! A lot of animals are drawn to this water body like crocodiles, elephants, buffalos, hippos and waterbirds. It is the life line of the reserve and a boat safari is a great way of exploring this part of the game reserve.

The coming nights you will spend at Selous River Camp. You will sleep in one of the authentic mud huts with private bathroom. You can enjoy a typical African sunset from your veranda.
