Three Day Selous Experience

Three Day Selous Experience

Short Overview

If you're tight for time and still want to explore Africa's largest protected wilderness, this three day Selous safari is for you.

Twice as large as the more famous Serengeti and three times the size of South Africa's Kruger National Park, Selous is a rambling wilderness far from the crowds that can be found at more accessible parks.

A perfect place to see the Big Five, Selous is a blend of east and south African game, and is one of the best places in Tanzania to see the endangered African Wild Dog. You'll have one full day and two half-days to explore Selous by car, on foot, or even by boat.
