4 Days Selous Game Reserve by Air

The vast majority of Tanzania’s elephant herds live in one remote stretch of safari wilderness – the Selous Game Reserve. A feature of this Safari is the opportunity to participate in classic style game drives as well as boat and walking Safaris. Transportation from Dar es Salaam to Selous Game Reserve and back by airplane, therefore there is less travel time than some of the other Safaris.

Day 1: Dar es Salaam / Selous Game Reserve  

Pick up from Dar es Salaam city centre and transfer to Dar es Salaam Airport for departure on a scheduled flight to Selous Game Reserve. On arrival, you will be met by Rufiji River Camp’s representative and transferred to Rufiji River Camp for lunch.

Day 3: Selous - Rufiji River Camp

After breakfast, accompanied by an armed ranger on a walking Safari in the Reserve. The sights and sounds (and smells) on a walking Safari are a special treat that will live long in your memory.
