3 Days Selous Safari Itinerary

Day 01: Dar es Salaam – Selous Game Reserve

On the first day of the safari you will leave Dar es Salaam early morning and drive to Selous game reserve. Selous is quite a distance so you will arrive by mid day and on arrival and after lunch; you will go for a boat ride in the Rufiji River. Crocodiles, hippos and hippos can be seen here as well as other animals as they converge to quench their thirst. Crocodiles take advantage to hunt their prey and you might be treated to sights of animal action if lucky. Overnight at Serena Mivumo River Lodge.

Day 02: Full Day In Selous Game Reserve

On this day you will spend a full day in the vast Game Reserve doing game drives in search of animals like elephants, zebras, gazelles, impalas and the rarest of all; the African Wild dogs. This Game Reserve was named after a prominent European explorer; the late Fredrick Selous and the reserve has since been declared a world heritage site by the UN body UNESCO. This game reserve is roughly the size of Switzerland and it covers unexploited African wilderness with topography that varies from rolling savannah grassland plains, savannah woodlands and rocky out crops that are believed to have been cut by the Rufiji River. Among the activities on offer here includes boat trips, a walking safari and game drives by 4×4 vehicles. Overnight at Serena Mivumo River Lodge. All meals included.

Day 03: Selous – Dar Es Salaam

Early morning game drive or a nature walk then after breakfast you embark on your drive back to Dar es Salaam by road.  You will arrive Dar es Salaam in the afternoon if you drive by road.. If you are flying to Zanzibar then you will be transferred to the airstrip to take your flight to Zanzibar.

This tour can be done as a camping Safari in public Campsites just outside the Game reserve of Selous. Flying safaris from Zanzibar can be arranged to Selous as well as safari packages to Selous from Arusha town in Northern Tanzania.
