Safari from Zanzibar - A night in Selous - Two Days

Short Overview

Explore Africa's largest protected wilderness with this two day Selous safari.

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 two full days and two half-days to explore Selous by car, on foot, or even by boat.
