Selous Game Reserve

Overview

Selous Game Reserve is located in Southern Tanzania, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Twice the size of Denmark, the Selous is one of the world’s largest game reserves – 55,000 sq km of untamed bush, crocodile-filled lakes, rivers and immense floodplains – remote, vast, and pristine African wilderness! It supports Africa’s biggest population of buffalo, elephant, hippo, wild dog and crocodile. The Selous boasts one of the world’s largest population of elephant, strongest herd of buffalo and hippos and some of the last remaining Black Rhino. The Selous is said to be one of the few places in Africa with a healthy population of wild dogs, also a good presence of predators like lion, leopard and cheetah. In addition to this, there are also warthog, wildebeest, giraffe, hartebeest, sable antelope, greater kudu and eland. Over a million animals inhabit this great wilderness; and more than 350 species of birds have been recorded including the goliath heron, fish eagle and kingfishers to excite any keen ornithologist. The park is split into two distinct grounds, the Selous and the Mikumi, by the great Rufiji River. The reserve combines many types of vegetation, from the BehoBeho Mountains to the Rufiji River with lakes, streams and swamps full of buffalo, waterbuck and Borassus palms. Stieglers Gorge, 100 m deep and 100 m wide, is a magnificent natural feature with a gut-wrenching cable car that ferries safari vehicles across the river. It also happens to be a spot favoured by the leopards. Selous offers a wide range of activities not found in the other Tanzanian national parks.
