Day 4: In Ruaha

Terrain and wildlife in Ruaha is varied and dramatic. Open plains are filled

with baobab and iconic purple-tinged hills provide the backdrop to this

beautiful scenery. Riverine bush and dry river beds can prove the hideout for

kudu and elephant while huge herds of buffalo and scores of giraffe are

never far away. Big cats are also a-plenty – Ruaha is never short on

excitement; and when the big game gets too much, the prolific birdlife here

will delight even the most disinterested of twitchers.

warm welcome and short drive to camp will see you at Selous Lake Manze for

lunch while enjoying the spectacular lake view.

If you can, tear yourself away and head to your beautiful lake side tent to

relax through the heat of the day, gathering back in the mess for tea at cake

as the sun starts to cool. Then it’s time to board a small boat for a relaxed

meander up the river – a wonderful contrast to the previous days’ game

drives.  As the sun sets, drift back to camp in time for sundowners before

dinner.

viewing this area of the Selous has to offer. You might start by following the

tracks will lead to a foray on foot to explore further. At lunchtime you’ll arrive

at the hot springs – a refreshing dip in these natural plunge pools will work up

an appetite for a delicious picnic lunch. Then game drive back to camp for hot

showers and pre-dinner drinks around the bar. Your day ends with another

dinner of great food and great conversation, and falling to sleep to sounds of

the bush – the perfect lullaby

Accommodation: Lake Manze Camp

Make the most of all that’s on offer here today.  Back on the water for an

early morning boat trip where you’ll find a sandbar in the scenic Stiegler’s

at camp and little relax, you’ll meet for tea and then set out on foot, ultimately
