Welcome to Selous Game Reserve

Discover the largest protected, undisturbed and dense park in Tanzania. Selous game reserve has the largest fauna reserve of the world.
The Selous Game Reserve, covering 50,000 square kilometers, is amongst the largest
protected areas in Africa and is relatively undisturbed by human impact. The property harbors one of the most significant concentrations of elephant, black rhinoceros, cheetah, giraffe,hippopotamus and crocodile, amongst many other species. The reserve also has an exceptionally high variety of habitats including Miombo woodlands, open grasslands, riverine forests and swamps, making it a valuable laboratory for on-going ecological and biological processes.
The Selous Park has a variety of vegetation zones, ranging from dense thickets to open wooded grasslands, nyasa wildebeest and hartebeest are typical of the miombo woodland. Other relatively widespread mammals include yellow baboon, leopard, spotted hyena, the largest population of the wild dog in Africa (endangered: approximately 1,300).
The adjacent Mikumi lowlands and mountains and Kilombero wetlands and the nearby
Udzungwa Mountains are rich in vulnerable bird species which, like the Kilombero weaver,might stray into the reserve. The globally threatened wattle crane, corncrake and lesser kestrel also occur. Reptiles and amphibians are numerous but little studied.
