Reserve. All day game drive in a specially modified safari vehicle with a
professional guide, in which you should see and learn much about a large
number of animals, including all the great favorites lion, elephant,
giraffe, buffalo, zebra and all the other major species including the
now rare African hunting dog. (Note that rhino are not seen in the Selous).
Great variety of bird species. Wonderful scenery, with varied topography:
wetlands, dry grassland, light acacia forest and higher ground with long
views to far-off mountains. Packed lunch and time to rest. Your guide will
select a location with shade and water nearby to watch animals coming to
drink place with a clear view all round so that no predator can creep
up unseen! Back to the lodge by 6.30 for sunset and dinner when you are
ready.
