Flycamping

The best walking safaris in Selous are those where visitors travel at a slow and gentle pace not covering much distance, only a few kilometres in an hour, rather stopping regularly in order to look and listen.  When one arrives at the flycamp in the early evening, it is all about experiencing nature at its best.  One can watch elephants passing by the camp in the moonlight.  Sleeping in the heart of the untamed African bush makes for an outstanding and unforgettable experience.
