The famous Selous Game Reserve is THE largest Game Reserve in all of Africa, spanning 55,000km2. The Selous riverine wilderness is diverse and rich in both habitat and wildlife.
The camps are situated on the renowned Rufiji River, which is home to thousands of hippos and crocodile. As the year progresses most of smaller lakes and puddles dry up, which forces many animals to congregate near the river. This provides our camps with prime game and bird watching, right from the comfort of your deck chair. Some species not found in other parts of Tanzania are common in the Selous, such as common waterbuck, Nyasaland wildebeest, Roosevelt sable, greater kudu and Livingstone eland. Uncongested and exclusive, the Selous Game Reserve represents a perfect “escape” from it all. Spend your time watching animals, on the river fishing for the elusive tiger fish, taking a guided walk through the bush or having a sundowner at an open fire - the possibilities are endless.
