The perfect luxury Selous safari holiday

The Selous Game Reserve offers an exclusive safari experience in it's vast wilderness. With the largest populations of elephant, buffalo, crocodile and hippos on the continent you can be sure of an exciting safari holiday

Situated in the heart of southern Tanzania the Selous is Africa’s largest protected area of some 48’000 sq kms, equivalent to the size of Switzerland. This remote wilderness holds the largest elephant, buffalo, crocodile and hippo populations on the continent, as well as great numbers of lion, giraffe, bushbuck, eland, greater kudu, leopard and antelope. It is also one of the last strongholds of the African wild dog, the second most endangered carnivore on our planet.

Activities on a tailor made Selous safari include game drives and exciting motorized launch excursions on the giant Rufiji River. The Selous area is also ideal for walking safaris and fly camping.

The life blood of the reserve is the mighty Rufiji River which cuts through the reserve in a snake-like pattern, leaving large sandy outcrops that make perfect spots for a sun-downer drink. The water draws in the wildlife so most of the camps and lodges are situated on the banks of the Rufiji. Guests can see animal activity from the balcony of their tent, as well as venture out on a motorized boat to see hippos, crocodiles and many species of birds. The main benefits of a Selous Safari are the relatively low visitor numbers, making it a far more exclusive experience than other areas of Tanzania, and game viewing activities that other safari destinations can’t offer. As well as game drives in open-sided safari vehicles, there are also river or lake safaris, walking safaris with a ranger, and a really exciting overnight fly camping trip in star gazer tents.
