“Definitely worth a visit. I recommend spending around 3 days in Selous.” - Steve_c

Watch the sunset as you take a peaceful boat trip in the Rufiji river

My fondest memory of Selous was spending the evenings watching the sunset in the amazing African skies as I took a personal boat ride in the murky waters of the crocodile-infested yet calm part of the Rufiji River. I don't think you need to spend more than three days here but it is worth visiting this place simply to experience things most parks don't offer. For example, walking safaris are permitted in Selous unlike most parks.
I remember the excitement flowing through me as we quietly followed a safari guide armed with a rifle on a 3-hour walking safari. The majority of your safari will consist of game drives so the opportunity to get out and walk in nature and stretch my limbs was a welcomed one.
The highlights for me were the boat ride and the walking safari. Selous also has several high end lodges and camps if you're looking for luxury on your safari.
