SED Adventures offers the best Selous Game Reserve safaris. You can enjoy Selous Game Reserve safaris at an affordable price through SED Adventures. Selous Game Reserve is a vast of 48,000 square kilometres area lying at the heart of southern Tanzania. Its staggering wildlife diversity and undisturbed natural landscapes have seen it designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, although the region was first set aside as a protected area as far back as 1896 by the German Governor of Tanganyika, Hermann von Wissmann.
While many areas of the reserve are still used for game hunting as privately leased concessions, the northern part of Selous Game Reserve along the Rufiji River is a popular safari destination and photography zone. It’s dotted with high-end lodges and camps that run daily game drives and walking safaris, as well as boat safaris to spot animals as they refuel along the banks of the Rufiji River.
The Selous Game Reserve is not the easiest Tanzania safari destination to access by road but it’s well-served by flights and can even be visited along with the country’s rail system. It also forms part of the Southern Circuit, which includes the Ruaha National Park, the Mikumi National Park, and the Udzungwa Mountains National Park, making it a great option for those who want to explore multiple parks during their Tanzania safari tour.
Selous’ vast numbers of animals have seen it identified as one of the greatest surviving African wildernesses and one that’s not to be missed. If you’ve already experienced the Northern Circuit or want to get away from the crowds, here are a few reasons why you should consider the Selous Game Reserve safari.
Animals you can see in the Selous Game Reserve Safari
Encompassing Acacia savannah, wetlands and extensive Miombo woodlands, the Selous Game Reserve is a spectacular natural destination. Much of the wildlife action concentrates around the Rufiji River while the dramatic, 100-meter-deep Stiegler Gorge is another frequently visited tourist area. It boasts some of the largest populations of species in Africa, although their densities are lower than other reserves due to the sheer size of Selous.
The Selous Game Reserve is home to huge numbers of buffalos (120,000 - 150,000), as well as large numbers of hippos and around 4,000 lions - among the largest populations in Africa. It also supports healthy populations of wildebeest, zebra, and impala, together with giraffe, greater kudu, waterbuck, Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, and eland.
The Selous Game Reserve is also considered an important sanctuary for the endangered African wild dog, as well as sable and puku antelope. Add to that spotted hyena, leopard, black rhino and Nile crocodile and it’s no wonder Selous is renowned amongst safari enthusiasts. While the park was once home to around 109,000 elephants (at the time the largest population in the world), numbers have significantly dropped due to poaching and there are only around 13,000 left today.
The best time to visit the Selous Game Reserve Safaris is the dry season from June to October. The wildlife is much easier to spot as it gathers around limited water resources and the vegetation is also much thinner during this period. Clear and sunny skies make it an ideal time to be out on safari and there are far fewer mosquitoes.
