The Selous is one of the largest protected areas in the world and also Africa’s oldest protected area. Three-quarters of the Selous consists of woodland of various types, short grassy plains and seasonally flooded pans. Over half of Tanzania’s elephants live in the Selous ecosystem where they roam the miombo forests. The reserve has over 150,000 buffalo, 40,000 hippos, 1,500 wild dogs, 3,000 to 4,000 lions as well as several hundred thousand plains game. Although the Selous is best known for its spectacular mammals - especially elephants bathing and criss-crossing the Rufiji River, the area is known for its abundant and varied bird life. Another Selous favourite is the many hippos and crocodiles. The most popular bird life is sandbanks, oxbow lakes, lagoons and channels along the Rufiji River, where the Selous Wilderness Camp is located.
Guests may experience game viewing on foot, by boat or by vehicle. Selous Wilderness Camp offers half and full-day river safaris, game drives and walking safaris with the occasional surprise bush picnic.
