City & Safari
Would you like to leave the busy city life behind you and see the beauty of nature? Never been on safari or do you want to go again spotting the wildlife? Book this three-day urban-& safari trip and combine the city life with the quiet nature. Dar es Salaam is the economic capital of Tanzania, a real African metropolis with millions of inhabitants. The traffic is a true chaos, so let our driver do its job and have a good look especially around you. It is well worth it to visit the national museums, markets and the centre to get the best idea why here it is different from what you are used to at home. The car ride to Selous Game Reserve, the nature park in the South of Tanzania, is also an experience in itself. You'll drive through beautiful natural areas with the most impressive views, and then the next day you’ll go on game drive. A full day of watching wildlife and enjoy the African nature that you normally see only on TV.

Selous Game Reserve
Welcome to Selous Game Reserve, the largest nature park in the South of Tanzania. Behold the unspoiled nature and the diversity of landscapes in the park. Come face to face with the Big 5 and see animals up close that are only here in East African life. Selous is the only nature park where may drive off road, so forget your binoculars, we drive to the animals! Our rangers and drivers are trained in spotting animals and can tell you everything about nature as well as about the animals. Through the natural park flows the mighty Rufiji river where many animals lessen their thirst and among others, hippos have their home. With our safari boat and jeep you will experience the park in different ways and you’ll admire the unique nature up close.
Africa Safari Camp
Africa Safari Camp is our third accommodation and is located on the edge of Selous Game Reserve. This unique location is a treat for any traveler in the middle of nature and is equipped with all the comforts and facilities. Around Selous and our camp there are no fences, making you be right in the habitat of the wild animals. Discover footprints of elephants and/or impala, just steps from your front door. But don't be afraid, the resort is designed in such a way, that you are safe on the premises of the camp at all times. Enjoy a relaxing swim in the pool or come relax in our lounge bar where you can read a book quietly with the birds singing in the background after a full safari day. Indulge your inner self with dinners and watch, from the restaurant, the wild animals coming to drink from the pond. You’ll stay in one of our spacious bungalows, cabins or luxury tents, each one equipped with a private bathroom and toilet, hot water and shower. They also have large, comfortable beds and ceiling fans.

It’s not by land, but by boat, on the Rufiji river, where hundreds of hippos are laying down to rest. Watch this beautiful natural phenomenon and spot, next to these giant beasts, also various bird and the unique pigmy marmoset that live along the banks of the river.
