Day trip Safari Selous

Selous Game Reserve (Nyerere National Park)

Do you want to have a safari experience in the quickest way possible? This day safari package gives you this opportunity. Flying in early in the morning, a full-day game drive with a bush lunch as a break, flying back late afternoon. Experience an amazing day in the bush.

Are you ready to witness the untamed beauty of the African wilderness? Look no further than the Selous Game Reserve, a true haven for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Spanning over 50,000 square kilometers, this remarkable wildlife sanctuary located in Tanzania is an unrivaled gem that promises an unforgettable safari experience. From majestic elephants roaming freely to stealthy lions prowling through the grasslands, from graceful giraffes gracefully grazing to playful zebras galloping across the plains – the Selous is a sanctuary where nature’s most magnificent creatures thrive in harmony.

Day 1:

After a few days of enjoying the sand and sun on the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, you will be picked up early in the morning by our driver and taken to the airport for your domestic flight to Selous Game Reserve. A short flight of less than 1 hour with aerial views of the island on departure and stunning views of the landscape on landing.

You then head into the African wilderness for your first game drive – the adventure of a lifetime! You’ll share your stay in the game reserve with elephants, lions, giraffes and an array of wildlife, so have your camera ready! This is an experience you will remember for years to come.

We use open four-wheel-drive safari jeeps, perfectly suited for taking unobstructed pictures. The vehicles have low emissions, thus less noise, and therefore we can take you close-up to the wildlife. An English-speaking driverguide is very knowledgeable on flora and fauna and will make sure you get to see the best of Selous. They will give you as much time as you need to ask questions, take pictures and to enjoy the amazing landscape.

Once your safari adventure comes to an end, you will be transferred to the airport for your return flight to Zanzibar.
