A great boat safari on the Rufiji


  With one of our private camping groups in the Selous Game Reserve this season,
(see www.authentictanzania.com ) we had a fantastic boat safari.


We normally spend half a day on the water with each group, exploring the river and lake systems which make this wilderness so uniquely special. Even a full day on the water is possible, with a delicious bush lunch set up on a sand bank.


We had some wonderful close encounters. A Crocodile dashing across the sand, to re-enter the water. There were Hippo out of the water. A herd of Elephants swimming across the Rufiji. Some White Fronted Bee-eaters nesting in the river banks.


The guide got some great shots of birds on the wing (a Yellow Billed Stork and a Fish Eagle).


A boat safari is a great way to get up close to the game for some exciting encounters, and it makes for a fabulous way to see the park from a different perspective.
