Africa is a long way to travel, and to maximize your time and your experience, we recommend the following.
The first is to spend two more nights in the Serengeti at a more intimate tented camp. There are three different options for camps from higher end to mid level. When we say “tented” camps they are not your basic tents. They are more like hotel rooms with ensuite facilities and depending on the camp they range from 5 star to 3 star. In a tented camp, you are closer to the wildlife and in some ways get a truer sense to what it’s like to be in the Serengeti.
The second is to spend some time at Selous National Park. Due to its remote location, and because it is most easily accessible only by small aircraft, the Selous Game Reserve has remained one of the untouched gems of Tanzania’s national parks and game reserves, and offers visitors a chance to see a wild and expansive Africa far from paved roads and curio shops.
It is home to some of the biggest quantities and largest variety of animals and birds in Africa. Selous has the world’s largest number of big game, more than 120,000 elephants, 160,000 buffaloes and about 2,000 rhinoceros, In addition, Selous contains Africa’s greatest concentration ofhippopotamus, crocodile and wild dog. The Selous is a rare combination of woodlands, marshes, savannah and open grass plains, crisscrossed by many rivers, one being the mighty Rufiji River.
