Things to Do at Roho ya Selous

From boating to walking, the range of activities we can offer in Nyerere National Park keeps things exciting and means that no one day is the same.

Game drives 

We have seven-seater, open-sided game vehicles for exploring further afield in the reserve and getting closer to large herbivores and predators. The vehicles have canvas roofs, power points and fridges everything needed to stay comfortable out in the bush for as long as you like. 


One of the things that separates Nyerere from other major Tanzanian parks is its boating safaris. From a safe distance, float past crocodiles on the sandbanks and hippos in the shallows, watching elephants come down to drink and birds nesting on the islands. 


Combine a boat safari with a spot of fishing. The rivers hold a good population of tiger fish and various types of catfish. 

Photographic safaris 

Roho ya Selous is home to one of our specially modified photographic vehicles. The open vehicle allows keen amateurs and professional photographers alike to shoot at eye level with wildlife. It is equipped with all the gear to ensure award-winning shots — from beanbags and camera rests to 360° swivel seats. You can read more about the vehicle here. Please enquire to ensure availability of the vehicle and confirm any additional fees.  

Walking safaris 

Head out on foot for an intimate exploration of the Selous. Stop and examine the tiniest creatures, such as ants and butterflies, and learn about tracking animals using their prints and dung. Plus, there’s the excitement of getting close to large animals as they pass by.
