Details of Ruaha & Selous By Air - 8 Day Flying Safari

DAY 1: DAR ES SALAAM – RUAHA

You’ll depart from Dar Es Salaam to begin your safari adventure, headed to the gigantic Ruaha National Park for a few days of unforgettable adventure.

A forested park with rolling hills and a hot, dry climate that means animals tend to stick close to the water sources. This makes for fantastic game viewing opportunities, and the park’s isolation means it is considerably less crowded.

DAYS 2 – 4: RUAHA

Ruaha’s position as a middle ground between traditional savannah and woodlands means that it provides unique game-viewing conditions.

During your two day-long explorations of the park, you’ll see everything from traditional game such as buffalo, zebra, lions, and elephants to less common sights such as the Kudu, African Wild Dog, and sable antelope.

DAY 5 – RUAHA - SELOUS

After breakfast, you'll enjoy one last game drive through the heart of Ruaha en route to the air strip for your flight to Selous Reserve.

 

You’ll arrive at your lodge in time for lunch before heading out into the park for an afternoon game drive. Sometimes called Africa’s greatest surviving wilderness, Selous is home to more than 120,000 buffalo, 40,000 hippos, 35,000 zebras, and 4,000 lions.

 

DAYS 6 - 7 - SELOUS RESERVE

 

You’ll have two full days to explore the wilderness of Selous. Not only can you experience a wide variety of wildlife encounters with animals such as crocodiles, leopards, hyenas, African wild dogs, kudu, and elephants doing a game drive, but you also have the option to take activities such as guided game walks and boat safaris through the park.

DAY 8 - SELOUS - DAR ES SALAAM

Enjoy one last game drive through Selous after breakfast, before heading to the airstrip for your flight back to Dar Es Salaam.
