The Selous Game Reserve is home to some of the most wild-wildlife left on the African Continent.

Home to the World's largest population of African Wild Dogs (Lycaon pictus) a rare and protected species, Africa's highest concentration of Hippos and more than half of Tanzania's Elephants; the Selous is both vast and untamed. In 1982 the UN decided it was such a remarkable place that they declared it a World Heritage Site, an award that it continues to deserve to this day. One of Africa's great wild places, it is yet to be discovered by many guests to the country and leaves its visitors with one of the most intimate experiences that Africa can offer.


The Selous Game Reserve was first set aside as a wildlife reserve as early as 1896 by German Kaiser Wilhelm II and takes its name from renowned Hunter, explorer, writer and soldier Frederick Courtney Selous, who was killed during the First World War inside the reserve and was buried near to the spot where he fell (marked by a grave to this day)
