In the Selous Game Reserve the rivers and lakes are the lifeblood to a park that hosts phenomenal volumes of game including lion prides, Africa’s largest elephant populations, and most likely it’s largest buffalo, hippo and crocodile. It’s much quieter than the Northern parks making it a hidden gem!
This park is so vast it is impossible to count its game and that is exactly what makes it special. The Selous is untouched African wilderness and the fact that it is still easily accessible makes it one of our favorite safari locations. Home to some of Africa's best boat safaris, walking and fly camping trips, the Selous has Tanzania's greatest diversity of safari activities. It is not only a great place for the safari enthusiast but also an amazing introduction to unspoiled Africa.
The wildlife in the Selous is both resident and migratory. Lion are particularly strong here and there are large numbers of leopard. The park also hosts very good buffalo, giraffe, eland, hyena, sable, hippo, crocodile, kudu, baboon, wildebeest, zebra, impala, hartebeest, colobus and vervet monkeys. With everything going on you will have plenty to see and do in the Selous.
