Selous Game Reserve is pronounced Selooo. It is the largest protected wildlife area in Africa with 45,000 Square Kilometers of wilderness. It is bigger than the size of Switzerland, bigger than the size of South Africa’s Kruger National Park and twice the size of the famous Serengeti National Park. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1982. It is named after the Englishman Frederick Courtenay Selous (1851-1917) who used to hunt and explore in the area during the British colonial era in Tanzania.

Selous hosts the largest population of elephants, lions, leopards, sable antelope, African wild dogs, buffalos and hippos. The park is also home toTanzania’s largest river, the hypnotic Rufiji River bisecting the reserve and home to hippos, crocodiles and various water-associated birds. The river forms a complex network of channels, lakes and swamps that create one of the most outstanding ecological wildlife systems in East Africa.

Well-watered, Selous Game Reserve is also home to the ferocious yet attractive tiger fish and vandu catfish, the latter equipped with a primitive set of lungs which allows it to migrate from one landlocked pool to another. The Selous is also rich in, open woodland, grassy plains, mountains and forests.

We promise you a fantastic safari, wonderful surroundings, a great guide, and breathtaking views of our Mother Planet on this camping safari.
