This Tanzania safari tour comprises classic-style game drives, as well as boat and walking safaris. Guests depart from Dares Salaam by to Rufiji River Camp in Selous Game Reserve, either by road or by air. You embark on an afternoon game drive in the reserve, and return to Rufiji River Camp. On day 2, enjoy a full day game viewing in the reserve, exploring the bush in 4x4 vehicles. Rare sable antelope, lion, kudu, waterbuck, and bushbuck are common animals seen in the Selous. On the third day, you will accompany an armed ranger on a walking safari. The sights, sounds and smells of a walking safari are a special treat that will live long in your memory. The thrill of creeping up to animals to “shoot” them with your camera is a great experience. In the afternoon, enjoy a boat safari: explore the different channels and lakes of the Rufiji River System, surrounded by hippos and crocodiles. A large variety of herons, storks, ducks, and other water birds may be seen, as well as land mammals such as giraffe and elephants. The last day sees a morning game drive in Selous Game Reserve, with the tour ending off in Dares Salaam.
