About Selous Game Reserve
Covering an area of around 50,000 square kilometres, the Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest protected wildlife areas in the world. Despite this great size, the reserve is largely uninhabited by man and is recognised as Africa’s largest unspoiled wilderness. In recognition of the unique ecological importance of the reserve, it was granted World Heritage Site status, by the United Nations in 1982. Very little development has taken place in the Selous, and this makes it most natural wilderness remaining in Africa today.
The reserve contains a wide variety of wildlife habitats, which include open grasslands, acacia and miombo woodlands, riverine forests, and swamps. It is home to thousands of the big mammals, hundreds of bird species, countless small animals, and many reptile varieties.
The River Rufiji is the main feature in the Selous Game Reserve, with main tributaries twisting and turning across the flood plains as the river runs towards the Indian Ocean. The river’s delta contains the largest mangrove forest in the world. Boat Safaris on the river and on the adjacent lakes are a special way to observe wildlife and to see some of the best scenery in the reserve. Hippos, crocodiles, waterbucks, buffaloes, and a large variety of water birds such as herons, kingfishers, and geese are abundant in and around the river.
