Africa Safari Selous Lodge will pamper you during your overnight stay, based on a full board meal plan. Your driver-guide will accompany you on 2 days of tracking, spotting and ”let’s get that perfect picture” moments of the wildlife in the biggest Game Reserve of Africa.

The Selous Game Reserve is not only a safari destination but also a stronghold for wildlife conservation. By choosing a fly-in safari, you support responsible tourism practices and contribute to the preservation of this pristine ecosystem.

After an exciting day in this vast protected eco system you will arrive in the Africa Safari Selous Lodge, where you will be welcomed with drinks, dinner and a comfortable bed. After an early breakfast in the Lodge you fly back to Zanzibar airport and back to your beach hotel.

After settling in you will start with your first full day game drive.

We use open four-wheel-drive safari jeeps, perfectly suited for taking unobstructed pictures. The vehicles produce low emissions and run quitely, and therefore we can take you close to the wildlife.

They will give you as much time as you need to ask questions, take pictures and to enjoy the amazing landscape.
