Selous Game Reserve


Safari Highlights

Today we can enjoy more game drives or bush walks, or alternatively take advantage of the boat cruises and fishing trips offered; cruising along the Rufiji River, seeing the hippo, antelope and other animals which congregate along the shoreline, not to mention the rich variety of birdlife, is a serene and pleasant way to view the wildlife.

The lodge also offers fishing trips for those who want to spend more time on the river, or we can request a picnic lunch for a day trip to the dramatic Stiegler’s Gorge – a nearby beauty spot where the Rufiji River runs at its fastest through a narrow gorge. Here the water echoes with the grunts of hippo and otherworldly screeches from the hyrax in the forest-clad rocky walls either side. The wildlife viewing here is excellent – with plentiful hippo pods, wonderful birdlife, and the occasional leopard sighting.
