  • Here is something to inspire your wanderlust

The rainy season is drawing to an end and we are glad to announce the reopening of Serena Mivumo River Lodge
on 1st June while Selous Serena Camp is slated to reopen 1st July.

Selous in Southern Tanzania is the ultimate wilderness retreat and is a mere 45 minutes by air from Dar es Salaam
International Airport. The spectacular Selous, the largest expanse of game reserve in Africa, a UNESCO World Heritage site four times the size of the Serengeti, is home to one third of Tanzania’s wildlife and provides sanctuary to the largest concentration of elephants in the world. Yet despite its unique collection of hippo, buffalo, crocodile, lion and bird life, this magnificent ecosystem remains virtually untouched by man. Largely undiscovered, utterly pristine and virtually unvisited, it remains the last wilderness frontier.

One of the great features of Selous is the variety of ways you can enjoy your Selous safari:

Safari Game Drives
Exclusive game drive safaris take place in a custom built open sided cruiser (that takes a maximum of 4 people) that
offers comfort, panoramic viewing and that also comes with beverages and a game viewing kit ( Binoculars and a
wildlife book) not forgetting a dedicated safari guide. Game viewing experiences are guaranteed to be unique. The
Selous is home to some of Africa’s largest population of elelephants, buffaloes, hartebeest, sables and the rare African hunting dogs.
Our guides your hosts are well trained and experienced having gone through regular training with a professional safari guide from South Africa and are dedicated to making your Selous experience truly memorable.

Fishing on the Rufiji River
The Rufiji River is the largest water catchment area in the region. There are plenty of interesting fish to catch, including Catfish and Tiger fish.

Guided Bird walks
More than 400 species of birds have been recorded in the Selous.

Walking Safaris
Walking safaris are also possible and offer a totally different experience to game drives. It is a chance to get close and personal with some of the finer details of the African bush, things like birds, trees and plants.

Boat Safaris
Boat Safaris offer a game viewing experience beyond compare, they offer a chance to see the diverse wildlife along the Rufiji River up close in its entire splendor and capture the magnificent scenery along the gorge.
