3 Days flying safari to selous
3 Days Selous Safari from Zanzibar – Overview:
Selous Safari from Dar es Salaam or from Zanzibar Island. Our 3 Days Selous Safari from Dar es Salaam is one of the few short tours that one can take by road (or by air) from the capital city of Tanzania, or from the Spice Island of Zanzibar. ‘Tanzania safaris’ sparks thoughts of an African safari in the most famous parks in the northern Tanzania, the likes of Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro Crater but these parts are just part of the classical safari in Tanzania. Tanzania however has some of the world’s untouched wilderness areas and most of them are in the Southern Tanzania and western parts of Tanzania. one search place is Selous Game Reserve.
Among these virgin African bushes is The Selous Game Reserve which is also the largest game reserve in Africa. This park is easily accessible by road from Dar es Salaam but also by air from Arusha or Serengeti. We can incorporate Selous Game Reserve into a longer itinerary that includes the usual highlights of a Tanzania Safari or offer a package to only Selous.
