The Selous Game Reserve and the Ruaha National Park are captivating wilderness areas where remote landscapes and abundant wildlife never fail to enthral.

A unique place to visit in Tanzania there are only a small handful of camps and they can be reached by light aircraft from Dar es Salaam, or, if time allows, by road.

Between them, the Selous and Ruaha are home to the continent’s largest populations of buffalo, elephant, hippo, crocodile and the endangered African hunting dog.

Other big game include lion, leopard, roan antelope, sable and both greater and lesser kudu

Selous Game Reserve

The Selous covers around 50,000 km2, four times the size of the Serengeti and nearly the size of Ireland. This vast wilderness area encompasses diverse habitats: lakes, hot springs, acacia woodlands, gorges, riverine forest, and open grassland.

Ruaha National Park

Further west, the Ruaha National Park is in a transition zone where the species of southern and eastern Africa overlap and it is one of the last great, undiscovered wilderness areas. Naturalists and birders will delight in the 1600 plant and 450 bird species.
