Tour Overview

Selous Game Reserve is one of the highlights among Tanzania’s southern national parks. Recently it was renamed by the Tanzanian government and is now also known as Nyerere National Park. A highly recommended activity during your trip is the boat safari on the Rufiji River. The river runs through the entire park and it is easy to spot thirsty wildlife that gathers along its shores. This private safari offers you the flexibility to travel at your own pace, exactly the way you like it. You will have a private safari vehicle and guide while accommodation is mid-range. If you prefer more luxury or camping, you can communicate with us. The 4×4 safari vehicle has a pop-up roof and big windows especially designed for high end safari game drives.

Day by Day Overview

Upon arrival at Dar Es Salaam airport, you will meet your Jairos Adventure guide. Our guide will drive you to Selous Game Reserve. After about 5 hrs, you will reach the Rufiji River that runs through Selous Game Reserve which you will explore by boat. During the 2-3 hour boat tour you can see lots of hippos, birds, crocodiles, monkeys, smaller animals like lizards and a beautiful sunset from one of the little islands/sandbanks on the river. From these sandbanks you can still see the animals and enjoy a little stroll around or a drink. There is nothing quite like the serenity of the river while the sun dips below the horizon.

Overnight: Selous River Camp

Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania is one of the largest game reserves in the world – it is even bigger than Denmark! It has a large number of wildlife including lions, leopards, hippos, crocodiles, Masai giraffes and many more! With a bit of luck, you can even spot the endangered black rhino or the hard-to-find East African wild dogs. It is a lot quieter here than in the other parks, so you can enjoy a unique and undisturbed safari experience!

The Rufiji River, which ends in the Indian Ocean, crosses the entire reserve. Around this river there is a swampy area that crocodiles love. The Stiegler Gorge is a special attraction here – a gorge 100 meters deep and 100 meters wide. Selous is also one of the few national parks where you can go on a walking safari with an armed ranger, which we can arrange for you, while from a vehicle you can enjoy the landscape to the fullest and spot many animals!

Overnight: Selous River Camp

In the morning you can enjoy another game drive or walking safari in the game reserve, and visit hot springs behobeho area. Your personal and experienced Jairos Adventure guide not only knows a lot about the Tanzanian culture, but can also tell you a lot about the beautiful national parks and sights of the country. So, don’t be afraid to ask your guide questions – he will be happy to answer them all.

This trip is an exclusive private safari so you can enjoy your trip to the fullest! You can also observe a specific animal or herd for as long as you like during the safari. You don’t have to be considerate of anyone. Your personal guide will advise you during the safari so that your trip will be an unforgettable experience.

Overnight: Selous River Camp

After a gorgeous final evening with fantastic food and an unforgettable sunset, today is your last day on your Tanzania safari. Depending on your flight, use your last morning to fit in a final, epic game drive. Then your driver transfers you to the airport for your departure flight back home.
