Experience The Very Best Of Tanzania's Selous Game Reserve With Our Portfolio Of Safari Lodges And Camps
The Selous Game Reserve (A UNESCO World Heritage Site) is an absolute massive reserve in the south of Tanzania that sprawls out over 50 000 km². To offer some perspective on the size. To put that into perspective, the Game Reserve is larger than Switzerland (41,285 km²).
The Selous (now the Nyerere National Park) offers spectacular scenery and wildlife, including; lion, leopard, elephant, black rhino, buffalo (the "Big 5"), wild dog, hippo, crocodile, and numerous species of plains game. Over 400 species have been recorded for birders, with summer being the best period to spot all those migrant species.
Depending on where one is staying within the reserve, game drives, walking, fishing, boating, and dedicated photographic safaris are available. It is worth bearing in mind that due to the pure size of the Game Reserve, safari activities differ dramatically depending on which area you will be staying in. For a truly inspiring Selous safari option, look at spending at least three nights in two different regions of the reserve, depending on time and budget.
We've put together a list of the finest Selous lodges and safari camps in different areas of the reserve and surrounding concessions, all of which provide exceptional wildlife encounters. As a general guideline, safari lodges and camps in the Selous are smaller and more remote than any other destination within Tanzania, with the bonus that all lodging choices provide a more intimate and private safari experience. The lodge and camp options in the portfolio below are most suitable for romantics, honeymooners, couples, and photographers alike. There are a few options that are suitable for families; however, keep in mind that malaria is present in the area, and most camps are unfenced (wildlife does wander through the camps). Just as a side note, because of the Selous (Nyerere National Park) remoteness, most transfers to the individual lodges and safari camps are by light aircraft; transfers by road are generally considered too long.
The size of the below Tanzania lodges portfolio will increase over time as we include exciting accommodation options that will only add value to your Tanzania Safari itinerary.
