Siwandu Walking Safari
To get as close to nature as possible, a walking safari or "fly-camp" in the Selous is not to be missed. Escape the modern world completely and immerse yourself in pure wilderness and get a taste of safari and adventure the way it used to be done "old style". The most back to basics, natural mode of transport, walking, has been greatly neglected since the introduction of vehicles into Africa. Re live the experiences of some of the worlds greatest explorers by going fly-camping and spending one or two nights in some of Africa's most unspoilt wilderness in the company of an armed qualified guide who will escort you through this magic land on foot, explaining the smaller but no less important details of nature often unseen from vehicles. A truly educational experience and a sensory overload awaits you as you carefully trek through the bush and get a sense of how our ancestors used to get about , a feeling very few people in this day and age can achieve. Observe some of Africa's legendary animals on foot without them being aware of your presence, a feat impossible to achieve in a vehicle, and gain a true understanding of the workings of animals and their relationship with the environment and get a front row seat of an animals life from their point of view.
Depart from Siwandu (formerly Selous Safari Camp) for a walking adventure and arrive at a basic yet luxurious little camp site which will have already been set up and prepared. Sleep in ensuite canvas tents under the starry sky and enjoy hot "bucket" showers and good home cooked food around a fire as the sun sets. A magical experience!
