Game Drive Safaris

All game drives are provided in spacious tailor-designed 4WD vehicles with open sides and raised seating for ideal game viewing. Games drives are best when taken early in the morning or at dusk and can be accompanied by a sunrise bush breakfast or sundowner picnic.
Walking Safaris

Accompanied by highly trained and professional guides, walking safaris offer guests the rare chance to get up-close and personal with the `little five`, as well as learn about the relationship between flora and fauna and the medicinal values of the plants that thrive in the reserve. A highly educational and uniquely enlightening experience, walking safaris follow the tracks, sights, smells and sounds of animals big and small into the wild of Africa.
Birding Safaris

Situated along the riverbanks of the Great Ruaha River means that Simbazi Selous is an ideal location for viewing endemic, aquatic and migratory birds. The river acts as a life force for abundant wildlife including a large listing of birds. Fish Eagle perch high above looking for prey, their familiar screech filling the air just before they dive towards their target. Water birds include Goliath Herons skimming the water’s surface in search of fish; flocks of Egyptian Geese fly by and land on the banks while tickbirds groom snoozing hippos. Simbazi is equipped with strong binoculars and our guides love sharing their knowledge on all the bird life that is located in Selous Game Reserve.
Boating on the Ruaha

The only way to truly appreciate the African game found in and around the rivers. Boating safaris take place early morning and late afternoon in our custom-designed boats. Attention to detail is still paramount with all boats fitted with cooler containers providing guests with cool drinks and snacks whilst meandering down the Gt. Ruaha viewing the large population of resident hippos, crocodiles, fish and birdlife.
Spa Treatments

Aside from the adventure of being in the world largest game reserve, spending time on game drives, walking safaris and boating safaris, guests can relax and unwind with a number of treatments available from the Simbazi Spa. For utter relaxation these treatments can take place in the suites, so after the treatment is complete guests can stay and relax in the privacy of their air-conditioned rooms. All our treatments are provided by qualified therapists.
