Unlike the parks in Tanzania, this stretch of land is preserved as a game reserve, with no permanent human habitation.
It is an impressive size, covering over 5% of Tanzania, Selous Game Reserve is bigger than Switzerland. Consequently, this reserve is a World Heritage Site.
The Rufiji River that runs through Selous never fails to deliver stunning scenery and is the best place to experience water-based wildlife.
The habitats within the reserve fluctuate between savanna, wetlands, and woodlands, making for diverse game viewing.
With very few roads, and no souvenir shops in sight, a drive through this game reserve is truly the best way to witness Tanzania’s natural beauty.
