4 Days 3 Nights Selous Game Reserve Safari Tanzania Tour

4 Days 3 Nights Selous Game Reserve Safari Tanzania Tour under the 4 Days 3 Nights Tanzania Safari Wildlife Holidays Tours travels to southern Tanzania Selous Game Reserve located far from the madding crowds.

Located 300 Kilometers from the capital city of Dar-es-Salaam, Selous Game Reserve is Africa’s largest game reserve and one of our favorite wildlife viewing areas.  It really is a hidden gem!

The rivers and lakes of the Selous are the lifeblood of a park that hosts some fabulous game, including elephant, wild dog, buffalo, hippo, crocodile and fantastic prides of lion.

The park is named after Englishman, Frederick Courtney Selous – conservationist, hunter, explorer and author, whose adventure books on Africa became best sellers in Victorian England.

Home to some of Africa’s best walking, boat safaris and fly camping trips, the Selous has the greatest diversity of safari activities of all the Tanzanian safari parks.

The boating safaris in particular really set this reserve apart from other Tanzanian parks.  The fact that the Selous is so much quieter (in visitor terms) than the majority of the rest of the country just adds to its attraction.

Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania is bigger than Switzerland and has the largest population of elephants in Africa. Lion are particularly strong here and there are large numbers of leopard.

The wildlife in the Selous is particularly interesting as it attracts both east and southern African wildlife, both resident and migratory, and over 440 known species of birds.

The park is home to over 50% of the remaining endangered African wild dog, and also hosts very good populations of buffalo, giraffe, eland, hyena, sable, hippo, crocodile, kudu, baboon, wildebeest, zebra, impala, hartebeest, colobus and vervet monkeys along with over 450 species of bird.

Our 4 Days 3 Nights Selous Game Reserve Safari Tanzania Tour includes activities such as standard daytime game drives, boat safaris and walking safaris.

Selous Game Reserve Tanzania Highlights | What to See and Do

Fishing Trip: Fishing can be done on the Rufiji River.

Bird Watching: There are more than 400 different species of birds recorded in the Selous.

Hot Springs & Selous Grave: There are several Hot Springs hidden within the Beho Beho Hills and surroundings in the Selous Game Reserve.

Cultural Visits: You can visit a local village on the outskirts of the Selous Game Reserve, and walk around on the farms, seeing the different crops planted by the villagers.

Selous Game Reserve Game Drive Safaris: Game Drives are the ideal way to see more of the Selous and its many different types of wildlife.

The Game Drives are usually extended and taken in open sided 4×4 vehicles. Half way through the day we stop somewhere scenic for a well earned picnic lunch.

Boat Cruises (2 to 3 Hours): Are quite a unique experience – the Selous is one of the very few game reserves in Africa where you can view game from the water and you have a much higher chance of seeing a larger variety of wildlife inside the Reserve than outside.

The boat trips allow you to watch animals come down to drink and enjoying the wonderful variety of bird life.

Game Walks: Are probably the most fascinating way to truly experience the wonders of Selous.  Out of the 4WD vehicle and being on foot is a humbling experience in this vast, untouched land.

Set at a leisurely pace, the walks are not intended to find big game; instead it offers guests an education into the lives of the smaller animals as well as the birdlife, insects, flora and fauna.
