4 Days Selous Game Reserve Safari
This 4 day Selous Game Reserve safari departs from Dar es Salaam by vehicle and spends 3 nights at the Rufiji River Camp. It is a safari well worth doing if you find yourself in Dar es Salaam and have just a few days spare.
Day 1 – Dar es Salaam to Selous Game Reserve
Depart from Dar es Salaam city center by 4×4 to the Selous Game Reserve to start your African safari. Enjoy a late lunch at the Rufiji River Camp. Embark on an afternoon game drive in the reserve, and then return to Rufiji River Camp for dinner and overnight.
Day 2 – On safari at Rufiji River Camp, Selous Game Reserve
Enjoy a full day game viewing in the reserve. Participate in some classic – style game drives – exploring the bush in open 4 x 4 vehicles. Waterbuck, southern reedbuck, and bushbuck are common in the Selous. Rare sable antelope, lion and greater kudu also frequent this area. Meals and overnight at Rufiji River Camp.
Day 3 – On safari at Rufiji River Camp, Selous Game Reserve
After breakfast, accompany an armed ranger on a walking safari in the reserve. The sights and sounds (and smells) of a walking safari are a special treat that will live long in your memory. The thrill of creeping up to animals to shoot them with your camera is a great experience.
In the afternoon, enjoy a boat safari where you will explore the different channels and lakes of the Rufiji River System, surrounded by hippos and crocodiles. A large variety of herons, storks, ducks, stilts, and other water birds may be seen. And you also see land mammals, such as giraffe and elephants. Meals and overnight at Rufiji River Camp.
Day 4 – Selous Game Reserve back to Dar es Salaam
Enjoy a morning game drive in the Selous Game Reserve. Early lunch at the camp, followed by departure transfer to Dar es Salaam. Drop off at the city center.
