Four Day Selous Experience

Short Overview

Explore Africa's largest protected wilderness with this four 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.

After breakfast, you'll begin your safari adventure with a morning drive to the Selous Game Reserve, one of Africa’s largest reserves. At twice the size of the Serengeti and three times the size of Kruger, Selous is a rambling wilderness the likes of which you’ve never seen.

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 2 - 3 - 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 4 - SELOUS - DAR ES SALAAM

After breakfast, you'll enjoy a morning game drive through Selous on your way to Dar Es Salaam. You'll have a picnic lunch on hand for the lengthy drive.
