Close, tantalisingly close…so close, in fact, that you will feel part of this natural setting.
With its faithful reproduction of original habitats from all five continents, Selwo Adventure is home to over 2,000 animals living in semi-freedom. Its four routes may be followed either on foot or aboard an all-terrain vehicle.
In the Central Village,the spirit of Asia is present in the shape of the prince of the jungle: the Bengal Tiger. The Bats’ Grotto is home to night creatures which ordinarily only come to life when others are sleeping, yet thanks to a specially devised lighting system, eagle owls and bats are active here during the daytime, immerse in the artificial night recreated by the grotto.
The Lake Reserve is home to the larger mammals, such as the giraffe, elephant and white rhinoceros. Brown bears, bison, camels and lions abound along the Valley Route, while up in the skies, the Birds’ Canyon is Europe’s largest aviary with over a 1,000 different species.
Selwo also boast a range of other activities: you can enjoy a trip on a camel’s back, walk across suspension bridges, try your hand at archery or even ride a zip line.
And for those who would like to spend a little longer here, Selwo lodge is a rural hotel combining the style of the typical African huts of the Watu and Masai villages with the comfort of luxury accommodation.
For younger visitors, there is much to be learned by paying a visit to the Nature Classroom located at the Gateway to Nature, where an innovative educational programme will teach them about the environment.
