A Watery Wonderland In Southern Tanzania - With The Selous Safari Company
Southern Tanzania is a landscape of huge lakes and rivers. Try a boat safari on the lake at Selous Safari Camp; follow the Ruaha River on a walking safari from Jongomero Camp or canoe at the beach retreat of Ras Kutani with The Selous Safari Company.
Situated within an open palm forest on the shores of Lake Nzerakera in the Selous Game Reserve is the 13-tent Selous Safari Camp. The huge lake supports a myriad of birdlife and the largest crocodile and hippo population in Africa. Guests at the camp are able to take a leisurely boat safari on the lake and the nearby Rufiji River, getting closer to these mysterious creatures than would ever be possible from land, before enjoying a sundowner on the darkening water as fish eagles hunt overhead.
Located north-west of the Selous Game Reserve, the Ruaha National Park is a semi-arid wilderness and home to the boutique, eight-tent Jongomero Camp which resides on the banks of the seasonal Jongomero River. In the dry season the wisest of Africa’s beasts come into their own, finding water in the most remarkable of places. On a walking safari and even from the comfort of their private veranda, guests can frequently see elephant digging for water in the sand river bed, finding abundant fresh water for their herd.
The antithesis of the hot, untamed bush region, Ras Kutani is an exclusive retreat on the windswept shores of southern Tanzania. Offering a true castaway experience with long stretches of unspoilt white-sand beaches, wild, white water perfect for body-boarding and a millpond-still lagoon for canoeing, Ras Kutani is the ideal place to round-off a safari adventure. There’s the chance to see dolphins, whales, turtles hatching (in season) and even a shipwreck.
