Detailed Itinarary

Day 1Depart from Dar es salaam to Selous Area

Early morning pick up am from hotel or agreed point and start safari to
the Selous Game Reserve. In the Selous pause for lunch and start afternoon boat trip. Usually the afternoon boat trip leaves camp at 4pm and returns at 6.30pm. It is an ideal trip if you would like to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Rufiji River with its many hippos, crocodiles, and beautiful birdlife. The sunset can also be stunning from the boat. There is nothing quite like the serenity of the river while the sun dips below the horizon.
The Rufiji is a large wide river with several lakes branching off it for you to explore, gaining a unique view of the river’s largest inhabitants: crocodiles and hippos.
Boat Safaris are also the best excursions for bird enthusiasts. The Selous has over 350 bird species, and the river is the place where they congregate in great numbers and are easily seen in the open environment.
You might also want to try your luck with the ferocious tiger fish, and weighty catfish that live in the waters in abundance.

Included: lunch, dinner, and 1,5 l water pp.

Day 2Selous Game reserve - morning bush walking and game drive

At 6:00-6:30 am after having a cup of tea and some home-made biscuits or doughnuts leave Camp for bushwalking. The walks take about 2-3 hours long.
The sights and sounds (and smells!) of a walking safari will long live in the memory. The thrill of creeping up to animals and then to “shoot” the animal not with a gun but with your camera, is a great experience. On a Walking safari, you are accompanied at all times by an expert tracker or Ranger.
Walking safaris are a fantastic way to get close to nature and learn more about the smaller species and the bush itself. It’s an unforgettable experience to walk within such a vast and untamed area of the natural reserve. Back to the Camp for breakfast and next game drive in the Game Reserve. The safari guide points out rare species of animals like the Wild Dogs. Sable antelopes, black rhinoceros, Nile Crocodile, hippopotamus along the banks of the Rufiji river, Cape buffalo, hartebeest and Eland. Picnic lunches and drinks will be served in the wilderness before heading back to camp for dinner and overnight.
