Selous Mid-range Flying
The Selous Game Reserve is the largest conservation area on the planet with the exceptions of the polar regions. Just a 40 minute flight from Dar Es Salaam this is an ideal opportunity to make your weekend special. For a short Tanzania safari it is actually more economical to fly than to drive.
