Selous Impala Camp

This authentic 4-day safari itinerary takes you straight into one of Tanzania’s prettiest hidden gems – Selous Game Reserve. Ideal for those wishing to enjoy an authentic safari experience with family and friends, away from crowds and other travelers.

Return transport from Dar-es-salaam or Zanzibar is by air to minimize the time spent traveling and maximize the time spent on safari. Accommodation is in comfortable Selous Impala Camp, a small wilderness retreat, not far from the beautiful Lakes Siwandu and Mzizimia, and overlooking the Rufiji River.

Expect fantastic game viewing, exciting daily activities, wonderful hospitality and unforgettable memories.

The tour begins from Dar-es-salaam with a flight to Selous Game Reserve where you spend 3 nights at the Selous Impala Camp, a semi luxury tented camp overlooking the celebrated Rufiji River, the defining feature of Africa’s biggest game reserve.

Selous is home to the Big 5 and Africa’s top predators like lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and spotted hyena. The reserve is also famous for its large buffalo and elephant herds, and sizeable populations of giraffe, hippo and sable antelope.

Selous Impala Camp is a traditional tented safari camp with just 8 guest tents set on raised stilts on the banks of the mighty Rufiiji River between Lakes Mzizimia and Siwandu in the Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania. The camp is superbly located for some of the best game viewing in the Reserve.

Each guest tent is set on raised stilts with its own private deck, ideal for relaxing in the heat of the day before the evening game drive or sitting out with your morning coffee and watching the animal life on the river in front of you.

Two of the tents share a deck and these are therefore ideal for a family. Every room has an en-suite bathroom with shower, flush loo and twin washbasins. The decor is simple with local colors and fabrics but perfectly comfortable and remains a traditional safari feel to them.

Game viewing can be done in a variety of ways. The experienced guides can take you out by boat to discover the secrets which lie in the waters of the Rufiji River. Boat safaris can be organized in the morning or in the afternoon. It is a unique experience to see the wildlife from a different point of view.

The camp has six landrovers and four boats as well as a walking safari team with an armed guide. It is also possible to arrange fly-camping. If you wish to go fishing the camp can also arrange this for you at an additional cost for the rod hire.

Days 2 & 3: Selous Game Reserve

Spend day two and three exploring Selous Game Reserve on 4×4 game drives in an open-sided safari vehicle. Africa’s largest game reserve, Selous is an incredibly vast wilderness area spanning 54 600 km². That’s more than three times the size of the Serengeti National Park which covers about 14 760km².

Selous was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982 for its exceptional value as one of the largest undisturbed wilderness areas in Africa. This massive game reserve incorporates un-spoilt mountains, forests, lakes, river and plains.

Selous is also noted for its high plant and wildlife diversity. On our game drives, we get to experience the diverse habitats of Selous, from grassland plains and wetlands to woodlands and riverine forests. We stop to watch animals and birds, take photos and have picnic lunches at scenic spots overlooking the lakes.

What animals will we see in Selous? Common wildlife sightings include hippos, endangered wild dogs, wildebeest and lions, along with plenty of plains game such as zebras, giraffes and a variety of antelopes. Selous game reserve is home to the Big Five of Africa. In addition to lions, buffalos and elephants are commonly sighted.

Leopards are occasionally seen but rhinos are only found in the southern part of Selous. There are plenty of crocodiles and spotted hyenas so chances of spotting these carnivores are high. Antelope species include sable, puku, greater kudu, eland, Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, bushbuck, duiker, klipspringer, oryx, waterbuck and an abundance of impalas.

At the end of our exciting days of game viewing in Selous, we return to the lodge for a refreshing dip in the pool and sundowners next to the Rufiji River. The Selous Impala Camp is located east of the famed Siwandu region of the park, Impala is located on the outer edge of a bend in the Rufiji River which affords it sweeping views up and down the river.
