“Selou Game reserve”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Amazing place with such a range of wild life to see, even though I am close to the elephant corridor that are supposed to be moving to and from Tanzania to Mozambique near a small town of likuju, there are lots of buffalo in the area even leopards which surround are site where we work.

“Undiscovered Africa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

One of the great pleasures of the Selous is that it is enormous, being I beleive the largest Game Reserve in the world, so there are absolutely no restrictions on where one can go. As a result a visitor will see few other vehicles during a full day visit, and unlike the Serengeti if you happen to fine a Lion kill one can enjoy the spectacle without dozens of other vehicles suddenly appearing to join you.
There is plenty of game.
The Mtemere gate is about a five hour drive from Dar-es-Salaam or one can fly into the airstrip there, the option we chose.
The entry fee is $US 65 per 24 hours, which I think is a bit steep.

“African Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Amazing experience from the base tent camp to the 2 day safari, it was the thrill of a lifetime! I would recommend this reserve to anyone ready to get close to the animals of Tanzania. Our guide were awesome. We saw lions, zebra, giraffe, elephant, water buffalo and every animal native to that area. We were NOT disappointed. It is hard to describe in words. If you have been considering a trip to Africa..... This is one place I would not miss!!!

“Super safari without the crowds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

Highly recommend the Selous as a safari destination.
Generally a fly-in from either Dar Es Salaa, or Zanzibar....and out of course making it good for combining with a beach rest. Often needed after a safari!
Good opportunities to see the endangered Wild Dog, which is not seen in the more popular Northern Tanzanian safari destinations.
Also with large rivers, there is a variety of habitat which in turn makes for a variety of fauna and flora, including
excellent birding.
Need to book lodges in advance as not many and also they are small.
