The Selous Game Reserve ecosystem consists of the Reserve, the Kilombero Game Controlled Area in the west, and the Mikumi National Park in the north. The Selous is of great historical interest, from prehistoric man, through the passage of caravans transporting slaves and ivory, through World War 1 campaigns, to its current status as an excellent safari destination.
Proclaimed a World Heritage Site, the Selous Game Reserve is a vast region of largely unexplored bush teeming with wildlife, and with very few roads in the interior, it is a serene wilderness safari experience. Bisected by the Rufiji River, the Selous is one of the most remote parks in Africa.
Walking, accompanied by an armed Park Ranger, is allowed in the Reserve, and is probably one of the best ways to enjoy the natural beauty and diversity of plant life of the area. There are sections of magnificent grass plains, wetlands, swamps and dense forest.
Perhaps the best way of exploring the Reserve is by boat, meandering through channels and swamps, and discovering hidden lagoons where elephant often come to bathe. Angling in the river can be an exciting way to pass an evening. Scheduled flights afford easy access to the Selous’ diverse lodges.
