Selous Game Reserve

Priced from (AUD) $
Star rating:

This remote reserve in southern Tanzania has vast tracts of virgin bush and provides the more adventurous travelers with a taste of untouched Africa.

The Selous Game Reserve (54,490 km. sq.) is five times the size of the Serengeti, and with its mighty Rufiji River, forests, and rolling savannah is one of the strongholds for some of Africa’s wildest elephants. Due to its remote location, being easily accessible only by small aircraft, the Selous Game Reserve has remained one of the untouched gems of Tanzania’s wilderness areas, and offers visitors a chance to see a wild and expansive Africa far from paved roads and curio shops.

Being a game reserve, walking activities and canoeing on the Rufiji River are allowed. This can bring about close encounters with the elusive, endangered African wild dog.

Samburu, Shabe & Buffalo springs National Game Reserves


A world apart from the lush green parks of the south, this fascinating semi-desert northern frontier district of Kenya has its own unique species not found in the less arid areas of the south. The tranquil Ewaso Nyiro River flowing through these parks provides an ideal habitat for crocodiles, large herds of elephants, elusive leopards and endemic species including Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, reticulated giraffe, Beisa oryx and Somali ostrich.

This northern rugged area is a set against a background of jagged purple mountains providing some of the best game viewing in the country.
