Selous walking safari
Selous and southern Tanzania, Tanzania
Follow your guide on foot as you explore the Selous, focussing on the smaller details that make up the ecosystem which you often miss on a game drive.
We recommend walking in the morning to make the most of the early morning light. Look for tracks of animals who have passed near to camp overnight as you explore the area with your guide. Stop to admire the birdlife and listen to their calls, watch as warthogs trot past with tails held high like aerials, and learn how the whistling thorn acacia defends itself from grazing antelopes. You may encounter a giraffe or herd of elephants, which feels entirely different to watching from the comfort and security of a safari vehicle. Exploring on foot slows you down, lets you listen to the sounds and breathe in the smells and is an opportunity not to missed as part of your safari here.
