    Thanks for your email. Our trip was great. We have seen so many animals like giraffe, hippo, elephant, many beautiful birds, black mamba and other snakes, kudu, impala, buffalo, baboons, crocodile and big groups of lions on both days. One group was already on the place we have expected to have lunch…

    We could tell the driver whenever we would like to stop to take pictures or to enjoy the landscape.

    Also the food was delicious and the accomodation was very quiet, except the bush babys we could hear at night…

    When we arrived after 6hours drive from dar es salam we could relax on the boat an see first animals like hippos, lizard, crocodiles and birds. Sunset on rufiji river was great.

    The walking safari was very interesting and we could learn a lot about animals and plants.

    We can really recomend doing this 4 days selous safari.

    Thanks for all

    Review We just had an amazing safari in selous-mikumi-ruaha (7days). The driver (William) drove really safe and had al lot of knowledge about the animals and provides answers to every question. He’s really experienced, knows the parks and the surrounding areas. Even when the car broke down he made sure it was fixed as quick and possible and that the safari wasn’t compromised. The cook (Amos) was really friendly and happy all the time. He made delicious food (even for us vegetarians). We loved his veggie pies and he even made bush pizza! He made a lot of delicious food (often more than we could eat) and enjoyed taking care of us.

    All the places we stayed where good especially the one in Ruaha which was inside the park! Because it’s a rather new company we didn’t really know what to expect. Just make sure to check beforehand if you sleep in or outside the park!! There where some small misunderstandings in our case but the company is open for feedback and we are happy with the way they solved the issue.

    The only thing we didn’t like was the walking safari. You won’t see any animals and it outside the park. We also didn’t like the way the bushman acted out all the things the local people did in the past. Some of the information was interesting but he was pretty loud and he was pretty focused on elephant dung (drinking from it, smoking it etc).

    Concluding: great safari with very good Gide/driver and amazing cook.

    Review We booked a five day safari to Selous and Mikumi NP. Before going on safari we were a bit worried since we didn’t have to pay deposit and everything was arranged via whats app. Upon arrival at Dar es Salaam I met the owner of the agency and everything was perfectly fine. They picked us up and together with another couple went to Selous. The first camp was beyond expectations. Great view and the tents were quiet luxurious. The boat safari was great to experience as well. The walking safari is more a bush walk and was quiet disapointing. The game viewing was beyond expectations and we saw many animals. During the five days we had a cook and he made sure that everyday we had good food with fresh ingredients. Our driver William was very helpful and explained us many things. The camp in Mikumi was a bit more basic. The park is less touristic which was nice. Overall, we had a great safari!!

    It was the greatest experience ever.

    Being able to see all that nature and animals at the Safari was amaizing. We have to give a special thank you to our guid Manjani, who search for all the best view points at Selous Game Reserve. Also a big thank you to our Chef Kapongo the food was always amaizing and very delisious. The staff at the Selous Ngalawa Camp was Super friendly and nice to us. As our boat safari guide (Ibrahini), Excelen! Very yang but explained everything and aswer to all of our questions. We will definetly come back and recomend Selous Ngalawa Camp team.
