Selous Game Reserve is a vast of 48,000 square kilometres area lying at the heart of southern Tanzania. It is Africa's largest wildlife reserve and home to large herds of elephants, buffalos, crocodiles, hippo, wild dogs and many bird species and some of Tanzania's last remaining black rhino. Bisecting it is the Rufiji River, which cuts a path past woodlands, grasslands and stands of Borassus palm as well as provides unparalleled water-based wildlife watching. 

Only the section of the reserve north of the Rufiji River is open for tourism; large areas of the south are zoned as hunting concessions. Yet, the wealth of Selous wildlife and stunning riverine scenery rarely fail to impress. Plan your Tanzania holiday right now.
