Discover Selous Game Reserve

Much as the typical game drives are only allowed during the day time, you will only find some of the best boat safaris in Africa .The lodges here have got the very best of the walking operations on the African continent, particularly that is to say, Beho Beho, Siwandu and Sand Rivers Selous. Fly camping trips including long walking safaris and very daring mobile camp set ups are also run by a number of safari operators. This is such an amazing venture for those clients that like to spend a night or two under the stars.

The Selous being a classic dry season park. The best time to visit is during the months of July to October as there are many animals that gather in this park. For the season you visit, the game gradually improves. Game viewing is only very good throughout the year and in particular areas.

The animals move away from the fertile feeding grounds during the months of January to February and this is the time for you to wisely choose your place of camping. Whilst, this is the perfect time for the best birding.
