Located in southern Tanzania, the Selous Game Reserve is Africa’s largest game reserve and one of our favourite game
viewing areas in Africa. It’s really a hidden gem! It’s much quieter than the Northern parks, the rivers and lakes
of the Selous are the lifeblood to a park that hosts phenomenal volumes of game including Africa’s largest elephant
and wild dog populations and probably it’s largest buffalo, hippo, crocodile and lion prides. As you have probably
gathered from reading this page, we are real fans of the Selous...untouched African wilderness and is still easily
accessible from Dar and Zanzibar. It is probably our favouriteTanzania safari location.
Home to some of Africa’s best boat safaris, walking and fly camping trips makes the Selous the park in Tanzania
with the greatest diversity of safari activities. It is not only a great place for the safari enthusiast but also an amazing
introduction to unspoilt Africa. Not only is the game viewing superb, especially in the peak season months, but
the wilderness on offer is some of the most untouched in Africa and the sheer diversity of activities on offer makes
for a superb safari experience. The boating safaris in particular are something that sets this reserve apart from other
Tanzanian parks and the fact that the park is so much quieter than the majority of the rest of the country just adds to
the attraction of Selous. The lodges are superb value, small and personal with phenomenal food and
service and a world apart from the huge 100 room hotels of the Mara.
