Selous Game Reserve

Selous Game Reserve is Africa’s largest game reserve and one of favourite game viewing areas in Africa. Covering 50,000 square kilometres, is amongst the largest protected areas in Africa and is relatively undisturbed by human impact

Africa’s largest and oldest game reserve is one of its most scenic wildlife destinations; the Selous is utterly beautiful.  The beauty of the park is matched by the quality of a safari here; boating, walking and fly camping compliment standard game driving in thriving wildlife areas.  This is an outrageously good safari park and an essential component of any southern circuit itinerary.

The Selous is a superb safari destination for both family safaris and African honeymoons, all the better for the ease of getting there and the lack of crowds.  The park has the widest diversity of safari activities in the country, offering the boating safaris as well as standard game drives, walking safaris and legendary fly camping trips.

The Northern section of Selous is home to a network of channels and lagoons that run off the Rufiji River.  This lush landscape provides a water supply for the region’s game and towards the end of the dry season the concentration of animals around these water sources is phenomenal.  It is here, around the river and lakes, that the majority of the camps are based; successfully relying on the animal’s need for water to provide game viewing areas.  Selous is in its peak season from July through to the middle of November – this when the dry season is raging and all the game homes in on the few permanent water sources.

The sheer volume of game in the Selous is outstanding with statistics putting most parks in Africa to shame.  Elephant, buffalo and lion are ‘arguably’ found in no greater numbers year round anywhere on the planet.  But it is the Selous’ reputation as the last true stronghold for African wild dog that draws the enthusiasts.

    Unforgetable Migration Safari experience Me and my girlfriend booked a very last minute private migration safari with East Safaris. Emanuel was extremely helpful from the outset, providing a customized itinerary on short notice and allowing us to pay via a bank transfer. The camps booked by East Safaris were absolutely stunning, excellent food and service, and very reasonably priced compared to all the other quotes we received. The safari itself was everything we had hoped for. We spent 4 night in Serengeti following the migration in north Serengeti, we where verry luck to see all the actions between predators(lion) and wildebeest, mara river crossing was extremely unforgetable experience to watch. Our driver Fadhil was a total gem. Very friendly, happy to adjust the itinerary to whatever times. If booking safari with East Safaris I highly recommend requesting Fadhil. Thanks again to Emanuel and his team for unforgetable first Safari experience! We will come bak again.

    The hospitality was amazing ,we hard best service ever and the best tour Me and my family had the most amazing safari experience. Emanuel Planned everything for us, very easy to communicate itwith him, and open for suggestions. Our guides Fadhili were experts on everything from the animals, to the roads, to the driving, to the people (Masai Cultural trip). We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have had their experience in choosing the parks we visited and the timing of the excursions each day, we literally saw thousands of animals! all Big 5 Animals. We were so close to a lion sleeping in a tree that we could have reached out of the truck and pulled his tail! I highly recommend this "7 Day Tanzania safari experience" safari which covers Tarangire park, Serengeti park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Lake Manyara park. Thank you so much Emanuel and your team, you're the best.

    Very satisfying arrangements and perfect service! We have just ended our wonderful holidays in Tanzania, all arranged by East Safaris! We (my son, my daughter and I) went on a 6 days track to mt. Kilimanjaro and afterwards 3 days of safari at Tarangire, Ngorongoro crater and lake Manyara! We have been very satisfied with the service and arrangements made, and Emanuel and his staff took very very good care of us! We will highly recommend East Safaris - they act in a professional way, they keep what’s promised and never let you down! Thank you for a wonderful experience! 🏆🏆🏆
