After our check in the hotel we than proceed to a half day game drive in the well vested national park which links to the southern game and the great Selous Game Park . Game drive is only allowed from 0600hrs to 1800hrs so close to this time we had back to our hotel for an overnight with the delicious meals they will prepare for us.

The next day we have an early morning game drive to try to have our last chance to spot the big five as they retreat into secluded places before sunrise. This time we greater chances to see the lions and the leopards on a kill or finishing up what was happening during the night. As we head back to hotel we have lunch and relax at the hotel and vicinity areas seeing how life is.
