Suni Fly-in Safari

Experience a variety of safari activities from the comfort of a traditional tented camp overlooking a stunning stretch of the Rufiji River. Spectacular wildlife, immersive experiences and simple comforts await guests at Selous Impala Camp.

Suni Fly-in Safari: Summary

Suni safari in a nutshell

This fly-in safari offers a well-rounded experience for great value in southern Tanzania’s vast and luscious Selous Game Reserve. Combining excellent wildlife viewing with a range of activities, Selous Impala Camp provides guests with stimulating variation and considerable comfort.

The camp is situated on a stunning stretch of the Rufiji River, where the wooden decking outside the communal areas and eight elevated bedroom tents provides an optimal place for guests to sit and enjoy the spectacular views. Nestled in the heart of northern Selous, the camp often sees a plethora of thrilling game walking right through its grounds. Return from game drives, boating safaris along the river or informative bush walks to observe large elephant herds and big cats come down to the water to drink.

Perfect for the more adventurous, Selous Impala also offers guests the opportunity to fly-camp and spend an evening or two sleeping out under the stars, utterly immersed in the calls and smells of the bush.

Designed with simple style, the camp aims to provide an authentic bush experience that lacks nothing in comfort. With the possibility of sighting leopards, roaming packs of wild dog and large herds of buffalo, amongst many other exciting species, this make for a stimulating, varied and convenient safari experience.
