A Safari in the Selous
Aside from being excited to finally venture into the Selous, we’re also excited about the range of activities we’ll be offering our guests in this pristine patch of wilderness.
The Selous Game Reserve is an area of varied landscapes and changing scenery. For this reason, all our game-viewing vehicles are open-sided to offer uninterrupted views.
Whether you head out in the early morning or late afternoon, the Selous’s verdant swamps, palm-fringed rivers, open plains and woodland areas are waiting to be explored.

Note: walking safaris are not available to children under the age of 16.
