7 Days Great tour in the Wilderness : Day By Day
DAY 1: SELOUS GAME RESERVE
Pickup from your hotel in the early morning and transfer to Dar es Salaam Domestic Terminal for your charter flight to Selous Game Reserve. Arrival by early morning and pickup by your hotel in time for 2 shared game drives and lunch at the chosen property. As you fly over the Selous, you will see why this is considered one of Africa’s largest parks. Although a large area has been (unfortunately) set aside for hunting, there is still a lot to enjoy and wildlife to witness. The Rufiji River is teeming with hippo and crocodile, and the birdlife is fantastic.
Lion sightings are quite common because the opportunist creatures tend to stagnate round the lakes awaiting animals coming back to drink.
One of the attractions of the park is that the probability to encounter canid.
DAY 2&3: SELOUS GAME RESERVE
Full days in Selous Game Reserve. We are completely flexible with your preferences and this day will be organized according to your wishes. Your guide or camp manager will discuss with you the best timings for you, including the game drives and the wake-up time. For example, the normal safari day would be composed with 2 shared game drives where you could do a morning game drive, return to the camp for lunch and relaxation and finish with an afternoon game drive.
DAY 4: FLY TO RUAHA NATIONAL PARK
After an early breakfast, you will be driven to the airstrip for your flight to Ruaha National Park, passing through the never-ending plains of Selous. With some luck you can even witness some animals in their morning routines. You will reach your next top safari location around 11am, in time for 2 shared game drives and lunch at the chosen property. Ruaha is considered the largest park in Tanzania, particularly good for predators, including very large prides of lion and the endangered wild dog. This park has a real sense of wilderness, offers a wide range of wildlife and, additionally, has very few visitors which is amazing for people looking to be immersed in Tanzania’s nature.
DAY 5 & 6: RUAHA NATIONAL PARK
Full days in Ruaha National Park. We are completely flexible with your preferences and this day will be organized according to your wishes. Your guide or camp manager will discuss with you the best timings for you, including the game drives and the wakeup time. For example, the normal safari day would be composed with 2 shared game drives where you could do a morning game drive, return to the camp for lunch and relaxation and finish with an afternoon game drive.
DAY 7: FLY BACK TO DAR ES SALAAM
On this day we advise an early get up so as to try an early morning game drive (when the animals are a lot more active) and see one in all the best sunrises you’ll ever witness. It’s really one of the most beautiful experiences to have. After the game drive, we return to the camp for a rewarding breakfast and then proceed to the airstrip for your flight back to Dar es Salaam, or whatever your next amazing destination might be (i.e. Zanzibar).
Alternatively, rather than this early morning game drive, you will prefer to occupy the camp for a touch of relaxation
