    Day 1: THE FLIGHT FROM SERENGETI TO NYERERE NATIONAL PARK

    Arriving late afternoon. The guide from Camp /lodge will be at the airstrip waiting to greet you and take you to check in at the Camp/lodge.

    This huge conservation area is a World Heritage Site and was gazetted into a National Park in 2019. Previously, named after Frederick Courteney Selous who died in the reserve. The National Park is north of the sprawling Rufiji River and is reserved for photographic safaris. The river is a myriad of wide open water, lakes and channels and Selous is the only reserve that offers boating safaris in addition to the more classic vehicle and walking safaris.

     

    Nyerere is estimated to have one third of all Tanzania’s African Hunting Dog. The landscape is predominantly flat and covered with miombo trees. Lions and leopards join the Hunting dogs as prevalent predators in the reserve and there is a good variety of prey animals from wildebeest and buffalo to smaller animals like warthog and impala. The river supports a rich and varied bird life, the banks providing a nesting bank for the bee eaters and fishing grounds for Kingfishers.
