Selous Walking Safaris


If you are looking for the ultimate wildlife encounter then there is little to compare to the intensity and thrill of an escorted walking safari. And the walks from Sand Rivers Selous – shared or private – must rate as one of the finest in Africa.


The walks are of varied length and design so you can go out just for a night or two for a romantic escape or dedicate yourself to something a little more adventurous and strike out on a five night mission. Walks generally follow the course of the Rufiji River, camping on sandbanks and in riverine forest. Extremely well executed, Selous walking safaris are perfect for those aiming to dig a little deeper beneath the skin of Africa

Food & service

The walks are all vehicle supported so you are never far from back-up, as and when needed. The camps are set-up in advance of your arrival, with ice for your gin and tonics and three course meals under the African sky awaiting.


The tents consist of simple but perfect mosquito-net sleeping units, which provide the ideal balance of comfort and functionality.

The walks combine well with Sand Rivers Selous and link conveniently with Zanzibar Archipelago. Please note that there is a limited window within which to walk in the Selous (June to October) as the remainder of the year the temperatures soar, making walking uncomfortable.
