Nyerere National Park

What to do

When visiting Nyerere National Park, there are two different boat safaris available. The quick, 2-3 hour boat safari excursions along the Rufiji River outside the reserve, or the all-day boat safaris that explore the Rufiji River and the Selous Lakes. Both the morning and the afternoon are options for a quick boat safari. There is lovely light in the morning, but due to the higher temperatures in the afternoon, there is a larger likelihood of spotting crocodiles. The benefit of an afternoon boat safari is that you may cruise at dusk. One of the most stunning and game-rich regions of the Selous Game Reserve ecosystem, which spans the Rufiji River basin in southeast Tanzania, is Nyerere National Park, now the biggest National Park in Africa.

Wildlife Safaris

A natural environment

The ultimate wildlife adventure and an incredible introduction to unspoiled Africa can be found near Selous mapumziko Lodge at Nyerere National Park, a stunning, distinctive, and unspoiled safari location. Game drives, bird viewing, walking safaris, and boat safaris are just a few of the diverse safari pursuits available in the park. Particularly, the boat safari distinguishes this park from the others. Boat safaris are a great opportunity to view large animals and observe birds because of the park’s numerous canals. It has some of the most abundant animals and reptiles in Africa, including buffalo, elephants, lion prides, leopards, hyenas, eland, impala, bush deer, and giant Nile crocodiles in the river and lakes. Its fauna is very beautiful.
