Day’s safari Selous Game Reserve: The Selous is Africa’s largest game reserve, a wilderness area bigger than Denmark or Switzerland. The park covers more than 5% of Tanzania’s total land area. Selous is still an uninhabited, untamed slice of ‘Old Africa’. In 1982 the Reserve’s unique ecosystem was recognized internationally and the area designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations.

The Rufiji River: an outstanding water system
The wide, meandering Rufiji River is one of the largest water systems in East Africa. With its associated wetland, lakes and swamps it is one of the most outstanding ecological systems in the whole eastern Africa. Boat trips and longer safaris down the spectacular River offer visitors a chance to see hippos, bird life and even crocodiles up close.

See a pack of African Wild Dog! 
During a game drive or walk one might be lucky enough to see a pack of African Wild Dog disappearing throughout Africa but thriving in the Selous. These complex and fascinating mammals show little fear of vehicles and it is often possible to observe their intense social life from close proximity. In the tourist area the density of dogs is higher than anywhere else in Africa.
Walking and boat safaris are on offer to visitors to the small and remote camps and lodges with little chance of bumping into any sign of human life. Fly camping or mobile walking safaris are becoming popular.
