Day 1

Fly to Nyerere (Selous)

When you arrive at Dar es Salaam airport today, you will be met and transferred to the domestic terminal next door to the international airport. From here you will catch your light plane to Selous Game Reserve. The flight is about 1 hour. At the airstrip, a guide from the camp will meet you and drive you back to camp. Depending when you arrive, you might have lunch then an afternoon boat safari, though if you're on the afternoon flight, you'll just settle in and enjoy dinner before heading to bed. Relax, you're in Africa!

Selous is a vast wilderness with savanna, lakes and rivers, and is known for great game. You will have two game activities per day. Most will be game drives, but you'll also get the chance to take a boat safari, and perhaps a walking safari if you'd like to try that too.
