Selous Game Reserve

The Selous Game Reserve

Selous Game Reserve Named after legendary British explorer, Frederick Courtenay Selous, the Reserve (more than three times the size of Serengeti National Park and twice the size of Belgium ), was founded in 1905 by the colonial administration and later expanded to include the traditional elephant migration routes.

The Reserve is uninhabited and little touched by human interference. Visitors therefore will find themselves in a pristine wilderness far away from the established tourist routes. Its wildlife (including some of the last remaining black rhinoes) is spectacular, and some mammal populations (buffaloes, elephants, hippos, wild dogs, crocodiles) are the largest in Africa.
