One of the most appreciated characteristics of the Selous is the “low traffic” of vehicle on its roads. Guests often experience hours travelling about the Reserve without seeing any other vehicles. In the busiest periods they may see a maximum of 3/4 other cars. For the most classical of the safari activities, the traditional game drive, Impala Camp uses its open vehicles (with a canvas roof to protect clients from the sun) which can accommodate a maximum of six people in addition to the driver and guide occupying the front seat.
Experienced guides can take you out to discover the secrets which lie in the waters of the Rufiji River. Boat safaris can be organized in the morning or in the afternoon. It is a unique experience to see the wildlife from a different point of view. Hippos and crocodiles, together with the hundreds of different species of colourful birds, will escort you while you quietly move on the waters of the enormous river or the beautiful lakes that form this incredible ecosystem.
Bush walks are also offered and trained guides can teach you everything you want to know about trees, grasses, insect, tracks and spoors. Walking in the bush lets you feel a part of the scene.
