For a taste of true African wilderness, well away from the safari crowds, head to southern Tanzania. Selous Game Reserve dwarfs the Serengeti in size yet receives just a fraction of its visitorsSelous is home to vast numbers of animals, including the Big Five, and offers some of the best opportunities to see endangered African wild dogs.
Nyerere National Park is easily reached from either Dar es Salaam or Zanzibar A relaxing break on an Indian Ocean beach is the perfect way to round off an action-packed safari. The main safari season is the long, dry season from June to October. This is when animals cluster around waterholes, rivers and lakes, making them easier to find.
The Selous Game Reserve can be accessed on a road safari however, when traveling from Dar es Salaam, there is a direct route that covers a distance of 240 km / 149 miles following the eastern road. The drive is bumpy and long taking you 6 to 7 hours which is nearly half a day’s drive.
