A UNESCO World Heritage site in its own right and twice as huge as the Serengeti National Park and home to an astonishing population of wildlife, it seemed inconceivable that Selous Game Reserve do not enjoy the same tourism traffic. Yet the reserve, spanning over 45,000 square kilometres is Africa's largest. Like Botswana's Okavango Delta, the landscape is formed by a complex network of channels, lakes and swamps creating one of the most incredible ecosystems encouraging wildlife to thrive in healthy numbers without the need for seasonal migration.
Why Selous Game Reserve?
Game viewing in Selous Game Reserve is rewarding with an abundance of wildlife in healthy numbers such as the endangered African wild dog, lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, hippos, wildebeest, zebras, one of the largest herds of buffaloes in Africa, waterbucks, kudu and a huge diversity of bird life. The lack of human activity and accessbility (only by small planes) also help to contribute to the growing numbers that provide a more than equal safari experience anywhere in Tanzania.
