SELOUS GAME RESERVE

Selous is the second largest conservation area in Africa sized at 5,000 km2, four times bigger than the Serengeti and UNESCO declared it a world heritage in 1982. It takes its name from Frederic Courtney Selous, a British explorer, who was slain and buried within this Reserve.

Hot volcanic springs, sporadic lakes and channels from the nearby rivers such as the Great Rhuha and Rufiji rivers give Selous Game Reserve a very diversified landscape. Along the Rufiji River you can enjoy the boat safaris sailing on the lakes and channels through to the birds and animals closely including hippos and crocodiles.

A walking safari is also an option to value if you are looking for something very special and different in the Selous game reserve.

The Selous hosts to over 350 species of birds and reptiles, many species of plants and the largest concentration of elephants on the continent have been known for taking home in this same reserve, before the Ivory war. In addition we can find also rhinos, gnus, antelopes, kudus, zebras, giraffes, lions, leopards and the largest populations of buffaloes in Africa. The Wild dogs are some of the key attractions inside the Selous, the good time to observe the scarce wild dogs is during their denning phase from June to August.

The ideal time to observe wildlife in the park is from June to October, during the dry-season, which is easier to see it because the vegetation isn’t thick and the wild animals stand around the water sources. At the end of the heavy rains, the roads are extremely impassable and many of the camps are closed till the end of the wet season.

Towards the end of the dry season especially, you can see many large mammals gather around the five lakes.

In Selous Game Reserve you will experience magnificent safari animals among the breath-taking beauty of the national park.
