Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dear all

We have chosen Selius Park for a one day Safari trip duringbour stay in Zanzibar , because it was more closer to our hotel located in Nungwi region ; so after a 1 hour by car and another 1 hour by plane , started at 05:30 , we have landed in the jungle ( as if it would be one of Escobar’s landing trips ) at Selous Park .

It was truelly amazing trip , we have saw all the great 5 animals , a lot of others , but the ones to remember was the encounter with the lions and the one with the elefants ….

Everything was ephical due to the highly exeprienced and highly friendly tour guide & off roader Jay ( Will Smith of Africa ) and his help Harry Man ; we have felt to be special and he tried all the trails ofvthe Bushmanns in order to approfitate and to see as much animals in close encounters as possible …

Otherwise he was a great host also , bringing along for us Tea , Coffe and Food . We have enjoyed the trip and we have learned a lot about the African animals fun facts …

Great day , I am recommending also for famillies with children , everything is safe but with a great deal of adventure smell in the air !

In order to catch a littlebit the taste I will attach some photos taken during the trip ,

Wonderful experience I will never forget. We could observe the life of family-lions (parents and three kids) and two male big lions feeding on a hippo, we saw a lot of wildbeests like giraffes, zebras, gnus, antelopes, warthogs, elephants, buffalos, birds, vultures feeding on a hyena killed by a lion, and on the lake and river we could observe so many hippos and crocodiles.
We spent an extraordinary one and a half day in Selous and we had very good, experienced guide/driver who told us a lot of interesting things about the animals. I recommend this adventure to everyone. What is also great about the Selous Park, it's that there are not so many jeeps and turists, and you can do a lot of offroads, the lanscapes are the most beautiful.

What fantastic 8 days we have had. Tanzania Horizon Safaris had arranged everything down to the last detail for us. We visited Selous Game Reserve, Mikumi National Park & Ruaha National Park . The guides were really super. What lovely men and how much they knew about all the places that we visited. I will recommend anyone who wants to plan a safari to do this through Tanzania Horizon Safaris. Thank you for this unforgettable journey. You can contact Elizabeth who made all the plans for this trip +255 716-597071

I stayed 6 days in Selous National Park (in non-hunting area). The landscape of the park is beautiful and varied; it is mainly bushy savannah surrounding Rufiji river, and there are several small lakes where animals come to drink. The fauna in Selous is exceptionnal. In the park, during safaris, we have seen:
- lions, leopards,
- packs of African wild dogs: I was very happy because it was the first time that I cound see these fantastic animals
- spotted hyenas, black-backed jackals
- other mammals, e.g.: zebras, giraffes, buffalos, gazelles, waterbucks, warthogs…
- a lot of birds.
Taken together, I highly recommend to visit Selous National Park

Thanks to Tanzania Horizon Safaris, it was a great experience we had from this guys.
An experience of a lifetime. Felt thoroughly looked after and catered to.We saw the most amazing wildlife and were privileged with the vast bush knowledge of our guide Said, and the love of the Tanzania for their landscape. Southern circuit is the best place to visit, we visited Ruaha National Park, Selous GR & Mikumi National Park. Everyone, everywhere, was so genuinely radiant and generous, and we are in love with the Tanzania people! Thanks to Tanzania Horizon Safaris for good guidance and organizing a wonderful safari to us.

It was very interesting safari 5 days Mikumi and Selous Game Reserve, we thought it would be normal but it wasn't, it was over expectations, the Licious Adventures Safari team is very welcoming and organised, the price was affordable. In short they exceeded our expectations. We recommend Licious Adventures and rating it 5 stars.

It is bigest conservation area in Tanzania and even Africa. Most of turist visit just north area of reserve near river Rufiji. Landscape around river is fantastic, big lakes, dense riverine forest, palm tree. There is plenty wildlife but aninals are bit more shy then in other parks. If you find lion pridfe you are alone with them not with ten other cars..
Also birdlife near river is very rich. This relatively little visited park (now receive name Nyerere NP) have enough lodges for different budget level and campsites especialy around the river just outside of park.. I can highly recomend for real african enthusiast

We had a great time in Selous with Halisi African Adventures.
The boat safari was very nice to see hippos and crocodiles.
Then we had two days of game drives, where we saw lions, zebras, giraffes, impalas, lions, pumbas, and elephants. And the final day we had a walking safari, also nice to see monkeys, insects, plants.
We stayed at the hippo camp, very nice place, surrounded by nature.
Our tour guide Frank was very nice and new where to find all the animals during the game rides and made very nice meals for us during our stay.
We definitely recommend Halisi African Adventures

We had a fantastic trip. We found exactly what we were looking for and very often what we found was beyond our expectations.

No problems during the whole duration of the safari. Our guide was top notch! Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha NP is the place to go!

I used Tanzania Horizon Safaris to organise our trip  from Dar Es Salaam to Ruaha, Mikumi and Selous Game Reserve. It was very straightforward to book and pay, Elizabeth  was in email and phone contact at all times. We had to make last minute changes due to a flight being delayed, and it was not a problem at all. Our driver was excellent, he drove very safely and was kind and considerate. Would definitely recommend Tanzania Horizon Safaris .
