Itinerary

Day 1: Fly to Selou

Arrive from Dar-es-Salaam to Selous national park in 45 minutes. This is the largest conservation game reserve in Africa and is going to reward you with one of the most natural experiences in the wild. Upon arrival at the airstrip, a representative from your accommodation option will pick you up and escort you to the lodge.

Go on the afternoon boat ride on River Rufiji to explore its relationship with the wild game as you will see elephants, buffalos, hippos drink water by the shores and some birdlife can be seen resting on the water. 

AA Safaris recommends you add authenticity to the adventure by spending a night in a well designed modern mud hut.
