Day 1Pick up from Dar Es Salaam and transfer to Selous Game Reserve Area

Starting with an early morning pick-up from your hotel or an agreed point in Dar Es Salaam, we’ll set off on an exciting safari to one of the most spectacular wildlife reserves in the world.

Once we arrive at the camp/lodge, we’ll pause for a delicious lunch before embarking on an afternoon boat trip. This is the perfect opportunity to soak in the breathtaking scenery of the Rufiji River, with its teeming wildlife and stunning birdlife. As we cruise along the river, you’ll be amazed by the many hippos and crocodiles that call this incredible ecosystem home.

As the sun begins to dip below the horizon, you’ll be treated to a truly magical experience – the sunset over the river is simply breathtaking, and there’s nothing quite like the serenity of the river at dusk. The Rufiji is a wide and expansive river with several lakes branching off it, allowing you to explore and gain a unique view of the river’s largest inhabitants.

For bird enthusiasts, this boat safari is an absolute must-do. The Selous is home to over 350 bird species, and the river is where they congregate in great numbers, easily seen in the open environment. It’s a birder paradise, with so many species to spot and marvel at.

But the fun doesn’t stop there – you can also try your hand at fishing for the ferocious tigerfish and weighty catfish that live in the waters in abundance. It’s an exciting and challenging experience and one that is sure to be a highlight of your Selous adventure.
