The Selous Game Reserve is a protected area in southern Tanzania. It covers a total area of 50,000 km2 (19,000 sq mi) and has additional buffer zones. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982 due to its wildlife diversity and undisturbed nature. Some of the typical wildlife of the miombo inhabits the reserve, such as African bush elephant, black rhino, hippopotamus, lion, East African wild dog, Cape buffaloes, Masai giraffe, Plains zebra, and Nile crocodile. Permanent human habitation is not permitted within the reserve. All human entry and exit is controlled by the Wildlife Division of the Tanzanian Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism.

The reserve was named after Frederick Selous, a famous big game hunter and early conservationist, who died at Beho Beho in this territory in 1917 while fighting against the Germans during World War I. Scottish explorer and cartographer Keith Johnston had died at Beho Beho in 1879 while leading a Royal Geographical Society expedition to the Great Lakes of Africa with Joseph Thomson.

DAY 1

Depart with the 8:30am Coastal flight from Dar es Salaam to Selous (ETA: 9:15am). Upon arrival you will be met by your Lodge/camp guide and game drive transfer to your camp. Enjoy an afternoon game drive or boat safari. Selous is the largest Game Reserve, four times the size of the Serengeti and at least twice the size of Belgium. In Selous you can see many giraffes, zebras, hippos, crocodiles and a fair chance of predators. The landscapes are incredibly diverse, making it a home to a great diversity of animals also. Unique about this park is the opportunity to do a boat safari which compliments game drives by getting to see animals from a complete different perspective as they come to drink from the River. If you’re lucky you may even see elephants coming to cross the river or take a bath! Arrive back at your camp to a bonfire and wonderfully prepared dinner. Fall asleep to the sounds of the bush at your camp or lodge. FB
