South Tanzania

Summary: Explore the wilds of the Selous Game Reserve by foot, boat and vehicle! The Selous Game Reserve is a treasure of Tanzania and one of the largest protected areas in the world. At over 45,000 sq kilometers, Selous comprises 5% of Tanzania’s entire land surface. At an estimated 5,000 visitors per year, the area is uninhabited and mostly untouched by man. Not only is the area beautiful and pristine, it is also home to some spectacular wildlife. The concentration of wild dogs, elephants, crocodiles, hippos and buffalo here are some of the largest in all of Africa. Wild dogs are one of the most famous of the protected populations here, due to their extreme rarity throughout most of Africa.

Recommendations: Southern Tanzania is only recommended from June to December when temperatures are coolest and wildlife concentrations are at their highest. Although the Selous is a beautiful reserve and has a lot to offer, it is good to know what to expect before making the trek here. Approximately 90% of the Reserve lies south of the river and is set aside exclusively for controlled hunting safaris through privately leased concessions. Additionally, game viewing can be a bit more difficult here compared to some of Tanzania’s more open parks of the North, such as the Serengeti. It is also worth noting that some of the animals here tend to be a bit shy and more difficult to approach. For these reasons we only recommend the Selous as an extension to enhance a solid itinerary that already includes some of Tanzania’s northern parks to ensure the quality of our guests’ overall safari experience.
