This was my second safari trip with Waterbucks and it didn't disappoint. I was going to be in Dar es Salaam to conduct another workshop and wanted to visit a different location this time. Ayaz was very easy to work with and he arranged a private 3-night, 4-day trip to Selous Game Reserve for just me. All logistics worked out... More

During next two days we had 8-hour game drives in Selous national park. We also took a two-hour walking safari before the second game drive in... More

Our guide Jumanne had great knowledge of the animals and was very good in spoting animals. We were lucky to see both leopard and lion.Vuma hills had high standard on their tents. Going there on in the morning of day one and then back to Dar on day 3 is a good setup.

However, immediately upon pick up from our hotel and arrival at the Waterbuck office, we could tell this was going to be an amazing journey. Our guide, Naza, was AMAZING. He translated, educated,...
