Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania

Located in southern Tanznaia, Selous Game Reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and vast wildlife sanctuary totalling 50,000 square kilometres.  Many amazing wild creatures are found in abundance here, amongst the dramatic and wild landscape which is relatively free of human impact.

The topography of the park ranges from grassy woodlands and plains, to dense thickets and also rocky outcrops, bisected by the Rufiji River.  The tributaries of Rufiji form a network of lakes, lagoons and channels.  Boating safaris on the river are highly recommended as the ultimate way to take in the stunning natural beauty of the park, not to mention the crocodiles and hippo that dwell in the brown waters.  Listening to the sounds of the water and watching the black-and-white colobus monkeys swinging in the trees of the riverine forest really is something you can only experience here.

One third of the world’s African wild dog are resident at Selous – this is a rare opportunity to see these rare and fascinating creatures in the wild.  Large numbers of elephant, black rhinoceros, cheetah and giraffe live in this sanctuary, along with waterbuck and reedbuck, which gather at the shores of Lake Tagalala, and magnificent sable and  greater kudu grazing in the longer grasses and shrubs.
