Boat safari in the Selous Game Reserve
Get up close and personal with the hippos in the Selous' mighty rivers and lakes on a boat safari, perfect in the late afternoons when the wildlife often comes to the shore to drink.
Part of the magic of the Selous is the ability to get out on the water, enjoying the wildlife from a totally different perspective. Watch elephants splashing around to cool off, giraffes bending precariously to take a sip and birds return to their nests to roost for the evening as the sun starts to drop. Perhaps take a fishing rod and try your luck at catching a tiger fish. As the afternoon wears on, find a quiet spot to enjoy a sundowner, listening to the fish eagles calling across the water.
