Our TrustPilot Reviews

Why Travel to Selous Game Reserve Ecosystem? by

Wild camping and close-up wildlife watching by boat - these are two of the top reasons to go to Selous Game Reserve. Tanzania's Selous rewards the adventurous traveller with a raw and untamed Africa bush experience. Walking safaris offer another unforgettable adventure in this gigantic East African wilderness area.

About Selous Game Reserve Safaris

Safaris to Selous Reserve range from 9-day and 10-day Tanzania Budget Safaris (camping or lodge) to 41-day and 55-day Accommodated Overland Tours. The shorter Tanzania Safaris focus more on off-the-beaten-track game parks in southern Tanzania and give you more time in Selous Game Reserve. The less-crowded wilderness destinations of the southern Tanzania trips include Ruaha National Park and the Udzungwa Mountains, along with Mikumi National Park.

Budget Safaris to Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve range from one to two or three weeks in duration as part of longer itineraries to other top destinations in South Africa. All of our guided group safaris to Hluhluwe-Imfolozi also visit Kruger National Park, South Africa's most famous game park. Many incorporate Swaziland or Lesotho, or both, into the trip too.

Many of the longer safaris that incorporate Selous also visit the famous Northern Safari Circuit of Tanzania, taking you game viewing in the legendary Serengeti Park and Ngorongoro Crater. Longer tours, of about three weeks, either explore Southern African or East African countries in the region, whilst the tours of a month or more incorporate both Southern and East African destinations - from Kruger in South Africa to Serengeti or Masai Mara in Kenya.

Selous Game Reserve features on tour itineraries to some of the best-known African game parks in the world as well as some of the wildest and lesser-known reserves. This Tanzanian game park combines well with Zanzibar Islands to the east and Lake Malawi to the south.

Tour Departure & End Locations

Short Tanzania Tours (9 or 10 days) that visit Selous depart from and end in Dar es Salaam, on the East coast of Africa. Then there are a few 11-day budget safaris that travel between Dar es Salaam and Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe or Zambia. These affordable trips travel via Lake Malawi in Malawi and South Luangwa in Zambia. 

Next, are the tours of about three-weeks long which mostly journey between Victoria Falls and Nairobi. These budget safaris take you overland from Zimbabwe to Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania and Kenya, or in the reverse direction. Major attractions on these trips include the world-renowned Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and trips to the beach paradise of Zanzibar Island, in addition to Vic Falls, South Luangwa, Lake Malawi and Selous.

The other alternative for three-week-long budget safaris is to travel between Johannesburg in South Africa and Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. On these medium-length trips, you primarily explore Southern Africa, visiting top travel destinations in Botswana. Highlights in Botswana typically include Chobe Park, the Okavango Delta, Makgadikgadi Pans and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve offering diverse African experiences - from red-sand deserts and bleached saltpans to watery delta channels and game-rich floodplains.

For tours 30-days and longer in duration, you can travel from Johannesburg to Nairobi (and vice versa: Nairobi to Johannesburg) or from Victoria Falls to Nairobi via Uganda, where you go gorilla trekking in Bwindi Forest Park. What makes the Vic Falls to Nairobi Safaris extra special is the chance to go gorilla trekking as well as wildlife viewing in the Masai Mara National Reserve of Kenya.

The longest African Budget Safaris to Selous start on the southern coast of Africa in Cape Town and end in Nairobi, Kenya. In addition to visiting South Africa's top city destination, Cape Town, these overland tours take you to the most incredible places in Namibia - the Fish River Canyon, Namib Desert, Swakopmund, Etosha and Windhoek. Then it is on to the best of Botswana - Chobe, Okavango Delta and Makgadikgadi Pans, before stopping at Victoria Falls for adventure activities aplenty. From there you visit highlights of Malawi, Zambia and Tanzania (including Zanzibar), before finishing your tour in Nairobi, Kenya.

Types of Selous Safaris

Take your pick from Budget Camping or Budget Lodge Safaris and Overland Camping or Accommodated Overland Tours. The Budget Lodge and Budget Camping Safari options are available for the shorter Tanzania trips that visit Selous Game Reserve. These small group safaris take 7 travellers at most and travel by 4x4 safari vehicle, offering an authentic African safari experience. Both the lodge and camping safaris include a professional English-speaking guide, all meals on tour and all park entry fees. The camping tour option includes a cook and camping equipment, tents and mattresses. The lodge tour option also includes domestic flights from Ruaha National Park to Selous Game Reserve (including tax) and a flight from Selous to Dar es Salaam or Zanzibar.

The Africa Overland Tours that visit the Selous Game Reserve Ecosystem as part of longer itineraries take groups of 20 travellers at most. The Overland Tours are conducted in large overland trucks, making use of 4x4 game viewing vehicles in the major game parks visited. These budget African tours explore Mikumi National Park, the most popular game park in the Selous Game Reserve Ecosystem.

Our Overland Camping Tours are the most affordable option, followed by the Accommodated Overland Tours. On Overland Tours, everyone is required to help out on the road, especially the camping trips where guests assist with setting up and dismantling the tents at camp. These adventure style tours are ideal for the young at heart. A flexible attitude and open-mind will go a long way to ensure a fun and rewarding overland experience in Africa, regardless of your age.
