This comparative tour extension exploring the southern part of Tanzania applies to Africa Serengeti Safaris itineraries ending in Arusha after the completion of the northern Tanzania park safari experience. This extension adds an excellent ecological, wildlife and activity diversity to your Tanzania visit. We highly recommend it. Check in for your scheduled charter flight from Arusha to the Selous Game Reserve arriving late afternoon at the airstrip. You are met on arrival and game drive on route to your accommodation for check in, dinner and overnight.
Southern Tanzania has 55,000 square kilometers of pristine wilderness designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1982. Four game reserves in the area were conjoined in 1922 to form the Selous Reserve, named after an English hunter, naturalist and soldier. Apart from its massive herds of thousands of elephants and Cape buffalos, the reserve boasts a varied population of large mammals including huge pods of hippos and prides of lions as well as packs of African wild dogs.
DAY 2 & 3 - SELOUS GAME RESERVE
Spend the remainder of the days in the Selous enjoying the spectacular outdoor activities and nature experiences at a more relaxed pace in Africa's biggest wildlife reserve in Tanzania.
