Selous Game Reserve

The largest game reserve in Africa, Selous contains some of the greatest concentrations of big game left on earth, including many of the last remaining black rhino, and one of the largest populations of wild dog in Africa. Owing to this huge array of wildlife, as well as its sheer scale and unique topography, Selous is now a designated world heritage site.

Lovely memories of a holiday to Tanzania

Thank you for organising our trip for us - the itinerary was spot on and we had a lovely time together.
