ITINERARY: Southern Tanzania Discovery Safari (12 Days)

Day 1, 2, 3: Selous Game Reserve. 3 nights, Sand Rivers Selous
Your Southern Tanzania adventure begins when you arrive at Dar es Salaam International Airport where you’ll be assisted to connect with a scheduled flight to the Selous Game Reserve. Sand River Selous, the most luxurious lodge in the Selous game reserve, is situated in the Northern part on the banks of the Rufiji River. The lodge is situated under large Tamarind and Mahogany trees, on a rocky peninsula overlooking a vast stretch of the Rufiji River.

Sand Rivers Selous has 8 grand open-fronted guest cottages constructed from local wood and stone, each with large en-suite bathrooms and running hot and cold water. This safari lodge in Tanzania has an impressive dining and lounge area, and swimming pool set on the banks of the river. Its exposed sandbanks are home to hippo, crocodile and a plethora of exotic bird life. Enthralling game drives, walking safaris, and river trips will fill your days. Each morning you’ll head out with your picnic lunch into the fantastic scenery of Selous. The river provides an utterly unique vantage point. Putter upstream on a two-stroke then kill the switch and float lazily back on the current. All meals and overnights at Sand River Selous (FB)

Day 4, 5, 6: Ruaha National Park. 3 nights, Mwagusi Safari Camp
After an early breakfast, a game drive transfer will take you to the airstrip for the flight to Ruaha and you’ll be met for your transfer to Mwagusi Camp.

Mwagusi is an exclusive and highly regarded luxury tented camp in Ruaha National Park, Tanzania.

Situated on the banks of the Mwagusi Sand River this is one of the most scenically beautiful areas of the park and has some of the greatest wildlife concentrations and diversity. The sight of over 2,000 buffalo flooding the riverbed below the tents and dining banda is not uncommon. There will be plenty of opportunity for game drives and walks throughout the area in the comfort of specially adapted open-sided vehicles with cosy seats and shade.
