3 Days: Selous Memorable Safari, Tanzania

selous game reserve

Adventurous Safari in Tanzania

An untouched patchwork of rolling savanna plains, riparian woodlands, and wild African bush, dotted to the hilt with swaying acacia trees, criss-crossed by meandering river ways, and graced by some of the last remaining miombo forests on the Eastern continent: welcome to the Selous Game Reserve!

Program

Day 1: Dar es Salaam - Selous Game Reserve

In the morning, at 6:00 a.m., you will be picked up from your hotel in Dar es Salaam to drive towards Selous Game Reserve. You will have picnic lunch on the way, and the journey will take about six hours through the most unexplored and untouched areas in Tanzania.

Lunch shall be served at 2:00 p.m. After lunch, you shall enjoy an afternoon game drive in the reserve and get to see some fabulous game including elephants, wild dogs, buffaloes, hippos, crocodiles, and fantastic prides of lions. You shall enjoy the park to the fullest until late in the evening when you shall have dinner at 7:30 p.m., then overnight at Selous Mloka Lodge.

Day 2: Selous game drive and boat trip

On this day, you will explore Selous on a morning game drive, around 7:00 a.m. You will look for leopards, lions, wild dogs, hyenas, buffaloes, wildebeest, elands, hartebeest, crocodiles, lizards, and other residents. Over 300 species of birds have been observed in this reserve.

The network of rough roads is reliably rewarding, especially during the dry season around the lakes. In the afternoon, you will be back at the camp for lunch before a boat trip.

In the afternoon, at 3:30 p.m., embark on a boat safari during which you'll admire hippos and crocodiles in their natural habitat. Selous Game Reserve is home to a high diversity of both large mammals and bird species, and the world's largest population of African hunting dogs exists in the reserve. Dinner and overnight will be at Selous Mloka Lodge.

Day 3: Walking safari and transfer back to Dar es Salaam

At 7:00 a.m., after breakfast, you shall go for a morning walking safari and return to your lodge at 10:00 a.m. to relax before starting a game drive en-route back to Dar. You will arrive to Dar es Salaam in the early evening and transfer to the hotel, port, or airport for your next schedule.

Location

An untouched patchwork of rolling savanna plains, riparian woodlands, and wild African bush, dotted to the hilt with swaying acacia trees, criss-crossed by meandering river ways, and graced by some of the last remaining miombo forests on the Eastern continent: welcome to the Selous Game Reserve!

One of the largest of its kind in the world, this remote piece of wilderness has proved a veritable incubator for flora and fauna since first gaining protected status in the late nineteenth century.

Today, it extends over more than 54,000 square kilometers of land in the heart of southern Tanzania and offers intrepid types a glimpse of wild Africa at its best.

It’s estimated that a whopping 130,000 cape buffaloes currently graze between its borders and more than 40,000 white-bearded wildebeest reside here, joined by considerable contingents of hippos, kudus, waterbucks, giraffes, packs of wild dogs, as well as one of the largest elephant populations on the planet.

The kaleidoscopic display of animals aside, Selous Game Reserve tour guides still have plenty up their sleeve. The winding banks of the Rufiji River give way to luxurious safari lodges, secluded ecotourist camps, and geological wonders
