Selous Game Reserve Holidays

River boats and walking safaris

Life in this enormous game reserve follows the ever-changing course of the Rufiji River. We love joining a boat safari to explore its canals and lagoons, spotting wildlife like a herd of buffalo drinking at the river's edge in the afternoon heat; wallowing, slick-skinned hippos opening those impressive jaws; and huge crocodiles basking on the sandy banks, disappearing under the water with a slightly unnerving splash.

Combine the Selous Game Reserve with a tropical trip to Zanzibar, or enjoy the calming shores of Mombasa for a true contrast.
