5 Days/4 Nights The Vast Selous – Train Journey

From the mountains, to the plains, and onto the Lakes, Selous is, perhaps, the ultimate all in one safari destination. On foot, by boat, and, of course, in the 4×4, we are offering you the best of this magnificent game reserve from two beautiful, but very different camps.

The Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest faunal reserves of the world, located in the south of Tanzania. Dry Season: June to mid November. This is the best time for game viewing along the rivers and lakes. Elephants come out of the bush at that time and predators are more commonly seen. December to February is good for game viewing but can be rather hot and humid.
