This game reserve is very original thanks to the mighty river Rufiji. You also can see some coastal birds. The lodge was excellent and boat trip memorable. Don't miss the tour in the forest with a real bushman : amazing!

Great safari in Selous, last July 2018. Three days/two nights. We saw all the animals expected, including lions, buffalo, hippos, and a elephant. The weather was great in july: no rain and a great temperature. Selous occupies an enormous territory, so is difficult to find others vehicules, except in the encounters with lions and elephants because they are more difficult to find. Selous is an area not overcrowded by tourism.

The park displayed a lot of what I feel African nature is like, it has dense vegetation areas and sparse vegetarion areas. It has the common animals, but you may not get to see the more rare ones. As our guide said, Selous you might not see everything, but you get close to the animals you see. In Mikumi you drive in hills and mountains, you may see more, but need good spectacles to make out what animal it is. This is 2 reserves easily accessible from Dar es Salaam, its not Serengeti og NgoroNgoro, which I understand is something completely different in many ways. But when we visited, there were 1 other car in the park, we saw it at the gate going in, so we didnt drive in a Safari convoy, this I appreciate.

Wild and wonderful

This was the first park of our multi-day safari tour in southern Tanzania, and we enjoyed it tremendously. The first day we were treated to a boat tour near our accommodations at the Selous River Lodge, and we were able to see a great variety of birds (kingfishers, weavers, bee-eaters) as well as crocodiles (baby and adult) and hippos. At night, we could hear hippos grunting from our hut, and we saw at least two kinds of monkeys in the trees outside the hut. During the two days of driving in the reserve, we saw giraffes, buffalo, many birds, warthogs, impalas, water bucks, hippos, and so much more. We enjoyed some breakfast and lunch with our wonderful driver at relaxing spots in the park, and over the course of two days we saw very few people. It was just as wild and wonderful as we had dreamed, and we would go back in a heartbeat.
