PLAN­NING TO VISIT?

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Tracking -

The best time to visit is from June to Oc­to­ber, the dry sea­son, when the an­i­mals gather at wa­ter holes.

In­di­vid­ual or tai­lor-made tours to Selous, with 4WD game drives, walk­ing or boat­ing sa­faris, or bird­ing, are of­fered by Scott Dunn ( scottdunn.com). Pack­age hol­i­days are of­fered by Ex­plore ( ex­plore.co.uk).

In­de­pen­dent trav­ellers can fly to Dar es Salaam then trans­fer on to Selous with air­lines such as Coastal Avi­a­tion ( coastal.co.tz). The jour­ney takes six hours in a 4WD or five hours by train. There is a range of ac­com­mo­da­tion within Selous and re­serve en­trance fees are usu­ally around £70 for 24 hours.
