Day-by-Day Programme


Hotfoot in and out of the spectacular Selous Game Reserve, arriving and departing this vast wonderland via air. Explore by boat, van and foot these boundless plains and winding river, which house the largest populations of elephant, hippo and cape buffalo in all of Africa.

 

 

 

Day 1: Dar es Salaam to Selous Game Reserve 

A short flight from Dar es Salaam delivers you to one of southern Tanzania's greatest adventures: Selous Game Reserve, a protected wildlife refuge four times the size of the famed Serengeti. Tall grasses undulate in the breeze; knobby acacia trees dot the landscape; and the majestic Rufiji River winds through the savannah on its way to the Indian Ocean. 

 

We begin our sojourn on the scenic Rufiji, our boat safari tracing the path of ancient Greeks and Romans. Today, the river hosts residents of a different kind: toothsome hippos, thirsty buffalo, and fierce crocodiles. In the evening, a game drive welcomes you to the spectacular terrestrial scenery of Selous, which houses the largest populations of several of Africa's most sought-after sightings: elephants, hippos, baboons, zebras and giraffes among them. 

 

Dinner and overnight at Rufiji River Camp.

 

 

Day 2: Selous Game Reserve

Your window opens onto a dreamland of beautiful scenery and diverse wildlife. Sun-bleached grasses and lush trees stretch as far as the eye can see, the view broken only occasionally by the meandering zig-zag of the Rufiji River. As our vehicle bumps across the open savannah, your eyes cannot decide on where to look: do you concentrate on the herd of African bush elephants, or the prancing zebras straight ahead, or perhaps the baby baboon riding atop its mother's back? You'll have a full day to decide, on today's Selous safari drive. 

 

Dinner and overnight at Rufiji River Camp. 

 

 

Day 3: Selous Game Reserve

Today you take to the African savannah as few visitors ever will: on foot. Accompanied by an armed guide, you'll crouch in tall grasses and traverse sun-cracked savannah in search of the 32,000 bush elephants and huge populations of zebra, buffalo, African wild dogs, antelopes, and other awe-inspiring sights present on the Selous plains. Sightings are even more spectacular during the dry season (June-October).

 

Dinner and overnight at Rufiji River Camp.

 

 

Day 4: Selous Game Reserve to Dar Es Salaam

Take to the Selous one final time on this morning's early game drive into open plains and dense wildlife. After an early lunch, we'll fly back to Dar es Salaam, arriving in time for afternoon flights or an overnight in the city.
