3 day escorted tour Itinerary

Selous Fly-In Safari

Fly directly into Selous Game Reserve

Situated in the south of Tanzania, Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest reserves in the world, at over 54,000 square kilometres, and boasts three quarters of a million animals – including hippo, crocodile, elephant, buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, waterbuck, baboon, leopard, lion, wild dog, eland, sable and roan.

Wildlife viewing in the Selous Game Reserve can be in the form of game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, by boat on the Rufiji River or via guided walks on foot.

Our three-day Selous fly-in option is truly flexible; it can be extended beyond three days; or, should you wish to add on a contrasting beach stay, can easily be combined with a relaxing getaway on the Kenyan coast or the nearby islands of Zanzibar or Pemba, just off the coast of Tanzania. To discuss your aspirations and find out more about a tailor made Tanzania safari, call one of our Destination Specialists for more information.

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Contrasting a shorter fly-in safari with a Zanzibar beach stay
  • Luxury tented accommodation
  • Enjoying a safari experience in the unspoilt wilderness
