Sand Rivers Selous Activities
Selous Walking Safari and excursion of four days is a thrilling escapade to even the most remote locations of Selous Game Reserve. Throughout the day you walk through magical landscapes and diverse habitats exploring them in detail. You would discover woodlands, plains, lakes, and gorges. At night you relax inside a fly-camp. These walks are usually arranged in the early mornings and late afternoons, while the remaining part of the day you spend relaxing or fishing.
Fishing is also an inspiring pastime in Selous Game Reserve where you can spend hours together testing your luck with the fishing line. You would love walking barefoot along the banks of Rufiji River. Make a boat trip to Stiegler’s Gorge and Kodai Island
