Selous Game Reserve
The worlds largest game reserve is just under 55 000sq km. Situated in the southern part of Tanzania, and named after Frederick Courtney Selous, the famous hunter and naturalist who was killed and buried there in the First World War. It is uninhabited and divided into approximately 45 hunting blocks. The vegetation varies from miombo woodland, rivers and thickets to more rough mountainous terrain in the southern areas. The reserve has a number of large rivers; Ruaha, Rufiji and Kilombero running through it. The buffalo populations are fantastic, as well as lion, leopard, elephant, hippo, crocodile and a wide range of plainsgame. Great general bag area offering some of the finest hunting in Africa.

These areas all have excellent populations of lion, leopard, buffalo, eland, sable, bohor-reedbuck as well as Topi and Roan antelope,with some of the areas holding the elusive sitatunga, all these are species unique to western Tanzania. Vegetation varies from miombo woodland and open grassland, to swamp and wetlands in some of the reserves.
