Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Selous Game Reserve

overview

Safari Highlights

The Selous is the largest game reserve in all of Africa and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982, due to its vast tracts of unspoiled habitat, and high biodiversity. The reserve was originally named for Sir Frederick Selous, a famous big game hunter and conservationist from the early 20th century. Today it is best known for its sense of remote wilderness and vast populations of wildlife – elephants, hippo, buffalo and crocodile can be found here in larger numbers than anywhere else on the continent. It is also one of the last remaining strongholds for the rare and endangered African wild dog.

Despite such incredible wildlife, surprisingly (and rather pleasingly), the Selous gets few visitors. Your lodge is perfectly situated for exploring the surrounding area with game drives in 4x4 open-sided vehicles and daily walking safaris accompanied by an experienced bush guide and armed scout. Bush lunches are served on request – dining beneath the shade of a large acacia tree in the middle of the African savannah is the perfect way to while away the heat of the day.
