Selous Game Reserve

Tanzania safari holidays to the Selous Game Reserve

The Selous Game Reserve is vast, and it's characterised by grassy plains, open woodland, mountains and forests as well as the channels, lakes and swamps of the Rufiji River.

When considered as a whole, it is Africa’s largest game reserve. However, it is really divided into two parts: a larger southern section, which is used for hunting safaris; and a significantly smaller, northern section where there is no hunting - it is only used for photographic safaris. Our safari holidays to Selous visit only the northern part of the game reserve, which you can explore by boat, vehicle or on foot! To get even closer to the bush, you might even consider the fly-camping excursions offered by some camps.

Almost all of those trips combine particularly easily with our ideas for beach holidays in Zanzibar, or our beach breaks to Mafia.
