Crocodile itinerary: 3 days in Selous Park in southern Tanzania


boat safari in the Selous

Arrival in Selous + Safari by Boat

You will arrive at the Selous – Mtemere Airstrip early in the morning, by 9:30 a.m., where you will be welcomed and taken to the Selous Park, the largest park in all of Africa (Flight from Dar Es Salam or Zanzibar not included, except on request).

Arriving at the Selous Wildlife Reserve, you will begin enjoying the beautiful day of boat safari. The Selous is in fact one of the few parks in Africa where you can do a game drive in water.

You will explore the Rufiji River and some of the lakes in Selous, accompanied by a guide, with special open boats having canvas roofs. Boat safaris are the ideal way to enjoy the wonderful scenery of the Rufiji River with its many hippos, crocodiles, and multitudes of birds. Certainly not to be missed is the sunset view from the boat, in which the tranquillity of the river and the cry of the hippos around you syncs with the scenery of the sun descending below the horizon.

Packed lunch will be served at the park.

Dinner and overnight accommodation at the lodge


Selous Park

Selous Park

We continue exploring the Selous with a jeep photo safari after breakfast.

The wildlife reserve of Selous (Selous Game Reserve) is one of the largest wildlife parks in the world, with a total area of 54,600 square kilometres. Some wildlife typical of the savannah (such as elephants, hippos, lyacons and crocodiles) are found in the Selous in higher concentrations than any other African park.

The vast beauty of the Selous and its abundance of wildlife are exceptional, and one of the attractions of the Selous in particular is the intimacy and authenticity of a safari here, where you can go for hours without encountering any other vehicle.

We will stop at a shaded space for picnic lunch during the hottest part of the day, usually under a large tree overlooking a lake – this can sometimes be one of the highlights of the day, as it is not uncommon for animals to come and drink while you enjoy your lunch.

Then the game drive continues into the afternoon.

Packed lunch in the park.

Dinner and overnight accommodation at the lodge.


Selous Park nature walk

Selous Park + Nature Walk + return by plane

We will take a nature walk after breakfast, accompanied by an armed Park Guard and our guide.

Walking safaris are a great way to get closer to nature and learn more about the smaller species and their ecosystem. You can spot giraffes, walk in the footsteps of elephants, learn to identify animal tracks and discover fascinating information about insects, trees and colourful birds. Walks are slow and last about 2-3 hours.

Lunch will be served at the camp.

You will then be taken to Dar Es Salam or Zanzibar by local flight in the afternoon (flight not included, except on request).

Your adventure to discover Tanzania is has come to an end, but we are certain that you will return to Italy with a heart filled with memorable experiences.
