Selous Game Reserve Safaris

Selous Game Reserve Safaris Place You in a Wildlife and Nature Haven

 A Selous Game Reserve safari takes you to the largest Game Reserve in the world. By definition, a game reserve allows hunting but the huge reserve of Selous is zoned between tourist areas and hunting blocks. While national parks in Tanzania do not allow any hunting, all game reserves do permit regular hunting. The reserve remains uninhabited by man and houses a significantly sized elephant population that roams across a region as extensive as Switzerland. As a renowned World Heritage Site, Selous offers travelers the chance to take a one of kind trip into wild, untouched bush area. The game reserve consists of a combination of grassy woodlands, rocky outcrops, and plains regions combined with the Rufiji River. Selous Game Reserve safaris take place in the southern portion of Tanzania where traffic is far quieter as compared to parks in the northern area, but it is important to note the climate is extremely hot and game drives are conducted in the early mornings and late afternoons. The park is home to a wide range of animal species due to the lakes and rivers of the area with some of the largest forms of wildlife including:

  • Buffalo
  • Hippos
  • Crocodiles
  • Lions
  • Elephants

It is home to one of the largest varieties of wildlife species and is considered a true gem by many. Few safaris feature only the Selous, but a visit to the Selous is most often combined with parks in northern Tanzania such as the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Tarangire. The mostly untouched location allows visitors to view nature at its best without the hassle of extensive traffic or intervention of man. Selous Game Reserve safaris place travelers in an unscathed environment where an opportunity is provided to take boat safaris, bush walking, and fly camping adventures. This location offers a broad range of activities to travelers in an unspoiled environment. The quieter atmosphere supplied on a Selous Game Reserve safari makes a visit to this location ideal for some.  Accommodations are usually more expensive than in northern Tanzania due to the smaller more intimate permanent tented camps that populate the Selous Game Reserve. If you are seeking a unique travel opportunity, Selous Game Reserve is a good choice for seeing the lands, game, and marvels of Africa in an unforgettable setting.
