Selous & serengeti odyssey
8 days 7 nights From - $5300.00 / pps
The best of the Northern Serengeti - home to fantastic year round resident game. Followed by the adventure of the Selous Game Reserve where you can experience the wonders of the bush by boat, on foot or out under the stars in our fly camp. We think this is one of the best itineraries; heaps of variety in landscape, camp experience, activities and wildlife.
Experiences: Game drives, night & day, Fly Camping, Boating
Areas: Serengeti & Selous Game Reserve
FLY FROM ARUSHA TO THE NORTHERN SERENGETI
Hop on an early flight from Arusha, up over the Ngorongoro Highlands and beyond to the wide plains of the Northern Serengeti. You'll be met by your Nomad guide for a short game drive to our Lamai Serengeti. Relax, settle into your room, taking in the extraordinary views across the Lamai Wedge, and perhaps head out for a game drive after lunch to see the lay of the land.
Get yourself to Lamai between November and March, slow down a little and we'll show you another side to the Serengeti. Unlike the southern plains of the Serengeti that dry out, forcing all but the hardiest of species to leave, this area remains lush and green. There's a collective sigh of relief from the resident game when the one and a half million migrating wildebeest - and the madness that attends them - leave town for a few months. And the resident game at Lamai Serengeti is spectacular. We venture out in custom-built 4x4s, or on foot to explore the winding river lines, rocky outcrops and sweeping plains. If you were to visit just one part of the Serengeti, we really think it ought to be here
camp: 3 nights lamai serengeti
day 5: WALK INTO OUR FLYCAMP FOR THE NIGHT
After tea this afternoon we will desert the lodge and walk with you into the big beyond. The further we go, the deeper the wilderness, the bigger it feels. At some point, we come upon our camp-out spot and home for one night. There’s a murmur of voices, the fire is lit. It feels secure and cosy. After a good nights sleep under the African sky we will give you breakfast, and walk you back to the lodge for the rest of your stay.
SAND RIVERS FLYCAMP
If you really want to connect with the African bush, just put yourself right out there and spend a night with only the finest line drawn between us and wild Africa. Because we know the bush, and we know what’s safe and what’s comfortable. In our flycamps we strip away all but the basic necessities to get you as close to the Africa wilderness as you’ll ever want to be. We give you safety and comfort, a proper, sweet sleep under the stars, and a major bucket-list experience.
FLY FROM THE SERENGETI TO THE SELOUS GAME RESERVE
Depart from the Kogatende Airstrip for your flight to the Selous via Arusha. When you arrive at Kiba Airstrip you will be collected by your Nomad guide and driven back to Sand Rivers, set on the banks of the Rufiji River the whole atmosphere is different in the Selous.
SAND RIVERS SELOUS
Days at Sand Rivers are about exploring. Our open-sided 4x4 vehicles are a great way of seeing things. For covering a bit of distance when that's what's needed. But, we like to retain spontaneity wherever we can. Often the best way to see things, to avoid scattering animals from the lakeshore, or spooking a herd of elephant as they feed, is to hop down and quietly work our way into a good position on foot. And the same goes for our boats. Being on the river is a fantastic contrast to time spent in a vehicle. All in all, days at Sand Rivers aren't about box ticking, or endless driving in search of the next animal. It's a sense of gradual absorption in this corner of the natural world that we'd love you to feel.
