WHERE TO STAY IN SELOUS RESERVE
Most lodges have swimming pools and some also have private plunge pools or outdoor showers on their viewing decks. Dining is usually flexible, in impressive surroundings with silver service, crystal and fine linen. In the highest range of luxury accommodation, Azura Selous aspires to recreate times past with sumptuous air-conditioned villa tents hung with an overhead fan, antique furnishings and personal butler service, whilst Serena Mivumo River Lodge comprises an opulently spectacular complex of classical luxury chalets for guests on boutique trip in Africa. Beho Beho was the first lodge built in the Selous. Family owned, it offers home-from-home relaxed comfort in stone cottages with wonderful views in the Beho Beho hills, where they catch every cooling breeze. Sand River consists of eight thatched cottages, stone-built, thatched, quiet and comfortable in an unrivalled riverside setting. Also in the “Safari Tier 1” is the very different Siwandu Safari Camp, composed of two tiny tented campgrounds in the heart of wilderness, providing ultimate seclusion and privacy for small groups to experience genuine bush living.
In the “Safari Tier 2”, Selous Impala Camp is another small tented base of less pretentious impact where the emphasis is on personal attention and flexibility in pursuit of the most cherished close to nature dreams of every AfricanMecca guest on safari in Selous. Selous Serena Camp is another fine deluxe option. More budget-conscious visitors have the choice of no-frills tented accommodation in close contact with the free-roaming animal world as at Lake Manze Camp, Rufiji River Camp or the larger Selous Mbuyu Safari Camp with its more regimented services. Selous River Camp offers a choice of mud huts or simple backpacker tents just outside the Selous Game Reserve boundary and are deeply involved with the ethnic local community. So the choice is yours: unadulterated natural world with casual doorstep encounters with indigenous wildlife; ecologically responsible simplicity, cultural involvement, international or ethnic cuisine, individual or standardized activities, pampered or stoic lifestyle, historical self-indulgence or ethnic simplicity, antique curlicues or clean modern lines. There is a Tanzanian dream holiday safari experience to suit every traveler.

Warren & Sharon Hanselman - California, United States
Dear Altaf, We had a really remarkable time in Tanzania and Zanzibar. Our favorite was Mivumo River Lodge in Selous. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and we will never forget it. Thanks to everyone at AfricanMecca Safaris for making our trip so special!
Rachel Flynn & Family - California, United States
We have returned from our African adventure and would like to thank you very much for your part in making this such a wonderful experience. We were lucky enough to time the Great Migration from the Serengeti, which was amazing.
Denise Paterson - Belmont, Australia
We had an absolutely unforgettable time. Both our guides were outstanding with so much knowledge. At Selous Game Reserve, we found a group of wild dogs cooling off near a pool of water. The safari was everything we had hoped for.
Gunnar and Liz Kristiansen - Ontario, Canada
I booked my safari holiday through AfricanMecca. They were the most helpful company I have ever dealt with and I work within the travel industry. I had the most amazing time. The holiday went as clockwork with no hitches anywhere.
Shelley Roberts - Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom
AfricanMecca's professionalism and care understands that what distinguishes Africa is its authenticity, the land, people and wildlife who do not share our world of fashion and fanfare that distinguish so many travel companies today.

EAST AFRICA SAFARI BOOKING TRIP IDEA FOR SELOUS IN SOUTHERN TANZANIA
When visiting Selous Game Reserve, we recommend combining it with offbeat parks in Southern and Western Tanzania such as Ruaha or Katavi ending with a chimpanzee trekking safari at Gombe or Mahale.
You may optionally extend out to Northern Tanzania safari parks such as Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti (wildebeest migration). End your trip with a Swahili cultural tour and beach holiday in Zanzibar.

GUIDE ON SELOUS RESERVE
Selous is Tanzania's richest, yet little known and unfrequented wilderness area, where it is still possible to feel the isolation, the vastness and the splendor of authentic travel in Africa as it once was.

SAFARI & TOUR IN SELOUS
The superlative way to experience all that a Selous exploratory tour offers is by a game drive through the area during the early morning or late afternoon, and combined with a walking and boating trip.

BEST TIME TO VISIT SELOUS
The best game viewing is to be had in the dry season, from late June to October, when vegetation is sparse and when thirsty ungulate herds move towards water, trailed by lions, hyenas, leopards and wild dogs.
