Selous Safari

1 night to 3 night packages
Tanzania is the foremost African safari destination. Selous Game Reserve covers 21,000 miles² (55,000 km²) which makes it four times bigger than the Serengeti. The reserve is named after English conservationist, hunter and explorer – Frederick Courtney Selous. His adventures and their narrations made his repute and his books brought him devoted readers avid of new discoveries beyond the boundaries of Victorian England. By today’s terms, he was quite a bestseller author.

If you want to walk in Frederick Courtney Selous’ adventurous footsteps, it will require an early bird departure. The amazing day that awaits in the middle of reputed Selous Game Reserve is well worth the effort.

The reserve spreads across vast expanses of undulating grassy woodlands and plains, onto rocky volcanic protrusions. The underground heat is strong enough to warm up water springs that gush out from the core of the earth here and there.

The earth in the Rufiji River region has been cut through and sculptured by the Rufiji River. Its waters sustain life through the park. The place is excellent for game viewing as it brings animals along the water network of tributaries, canals and by lakes and laguna. This is further enhanced during the dry season when one can sight impressive gatherings.
