Boat Safaris

The Selous is one of the very few game reserves in Africa where you can view game from the water, and after the dust and bumpy roads of a game drive, there's nothing more relaxing that drifting along the river watching the wildlife.

We offer two types of boat safari from camp, short 2-3 hour boat trips along the Rufiji River outside the reserve, and full day boat safaris which, in addition to the Rufiji River, explore the lakes of the Selous. Both safaris are accompanied by our expert guide and make use of our open-sided, canvas-roofed boats.


Boat safaris are the ideal way of enjoying the stunning scenery of the Rufiji River with its many hippos, crocodiles and beautiful birdlife. Definitely not to be missed is the sunset from the boat - there is nothing quite like the peacefulness of the river, hippos honking all around you while the sun dips below the horizon.
