4 Days Relaxing Sounds of Selous River

Perched upon the banks of the beautiful Rufiji River, this tented camp in Selous Game Reserve offers spectacular views across the hippo-filled river. Visitors are not only treated to game drives but boating safaris, safari walks, and fly-camping, too. This is truly wild, untamed Africa, in an area rich with game. Get off the usual safari track for a whirlwind week of wildlife-viewing in the southern circuit of Tanzania. The reserves and national parks of this region are remote and much less frequented by travelers, offering exceptional exploration.

  • Set out on safari in two spectacular nature reserves seeking out Tanzania’s incredible wildlife, from lions, zebras, and giraffes to endangered African wild dogs.
  • Discuss the importance of wildlife conservation with rangers in Ruaha National Park.
  • Embark on a river safari through Selous Game Reserve to spot bathing elephants, wading hippos, crocodiles basking in the sun, and more.

Day 2: Take a Walk on the WildsideView Lodge

Thrilling walking safari in the vast Selous Game Reserve. Wake up early and take a walk on the wild side as you venture out into the surprises of the wilderness. Alongside an armed ranger, you will be able to traverse slowly across the ever-changing landscapes and vegetation of the untouched area surrounding the camp. Your flush toilet and shower have hot and cold running water so you can enjoy dusty walks in the bush without the fear of running out of clean water for a shower afterward. Watch as flocks of pelicans occupy the shallow shores of the river and how other animals make their way down to the river's edge to get a sip of water. Birding in the Selous is an exciting activity - for both casual birders and birding enthusiasts. Depending on the season, there are various species of resident and migrant birds. Return to camp for a late breakfast and a well-deserved relaxing few hours on your veranda or cool off in the pool. In the afternoon venture out for a game drive stopping for sundowners next to one of the lakes watching the sky’s changing colors reflected on the lake’s surface.
