Day 1

Drive to Selous Game Reserve: This 3 days Selous Game Reserve safari starts from Zanzibar by an afternoon flight to start your Africa Safari in the African wild where you will spend 3 nights at Selous Butembo Tented Lodge which is built just beside the river overlooking the Mighty Rufiji River. The tents are generously structured with a safari atmosphere, tastefully furnished and with en suite toilets, sinks and showers. All tents are facing the Rufiji River. We arrive in the late afternoon, we take lunch and relax before we start experiencing a boat safari on the Mighty Rufiji River. The evening boat trip is an ideal trip if you would like to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Rufiji River with its many hippos, crocodiles and beautiful birdlife. The sunset can also be stunning from the boat- there is nothing quite like the serenity of the river while the sun dips below the horizon. Dinner and stay overnight on full board basis.
