Selous Game Reserve
The Selous Game Reserve, a massive 50,000 square kilometres (four times the size of the Serengeti and bigger than Belgium or Switzerland) is wilderness on a huge scale. Although it is a seemingly infinite place, it has great subtlety.
Wildlife encounters are intimate and dreamlike; animals appear and disappear into the bush, and the scenery is breath-taking. This remote wilderness holds the continent’s largest populations of buffalo, elephant, hippo and crocodile as well as great numbers of lion, leopard, giraffe, roan antelope, giraffe, sable, eland and both greater and lesser kudu. It is also one of the last strongholds of the African Wild Dog - the second most endangered carnivore on our planet. The Selous is fed by the mighty Rufiji River, the largest river in East Africa which drains most of South Western Tanzania’s water, this reserve is home to over 1,000,000 large animals and is home to over half of Tanzania’s elephant population.
