The Selous is renowned for the diversity of its safari activities, allowing you the chance to mix and match each day. Choosing between game drives, boat safaris and walking safaris each morning and afternoon, you will be accompanied by expert guides who will really showcase the beauty of this reserve and its resident flora and fauna.
Best for exploring further afield and searching for larger mammals and predators, game drives are a rewarding option for your safari. Using seven-seater open-sided vehicles with tiered seating, every guest is assured of an uninterrupted view of the wildlife. There is a roof for shade, power points for charging your devices and fridges to keep your sundowner drinks deliciously cool.
Immerse yourself completely in the rugged environment of the Selous on a walking safari accompanied by an armed expert guide, taking in the smaller details and tracking wildlife on foot.
No safari in the Selous is complete without a trip out on the water, passing pods of hippo in the shallows and crocodiles sunning themselves on sandbanks. Watch wildlife come to drink from the ultimate perspective, and enjoy drifting up close to bird colonies nesting in the riverbanks or on small islands.
Imagine going to sleep at night with only the sounds of the African bush around you, and the only lights the stars overhead. Asilia is one of very few operators to offer you the exceptional, highly adventurous option of fly camping. A night at your own personal campsite deep in the bush gives you a true wilderness experience: there is nothing between you and the African bush.
Combine your boat safari with a bit of fishing, a relaxing way to spend an hour or so in the afternoon. The rivers are home to good populations of tiger fish as well as various species of catfish.
