Being the largest reserve in Africa with the size larger than Switzerland or Denmark, its named after the conservationist and hunter Englishman Frederick Selous. The reserve varies from rolling grassy woodlands and plains, to rocky outcrops cut by the Rufiji River - the lifeblood of the park, whose tributaries form a network of lakes, lagoons and channels. Volcanic hot springs even burst forth in places. The Rufiji offers a superb method of game viewing especially during the dry season when animals congregate. It’s the host of the biggest elephant population in Tanzania of up to 70000 70,000 large number of Buffalo, hippo, crocodile, Wild dog lion, Bushbuck, reedbuck, waterbuck, giraffe, Eland, Baboon, Greater Kudu, Zebra and the rare Sable and roan antelope. About 400 bird species recorded. The topography of the reserve varies from Savannah, woodland, garland plains and rock outcrops cut by the Rufiji river, Accommodation: luxury Tented Camp. Mbuyu Safari Camp, Rufiji River Camp, Sable Mountain lodge, Selous Mbega camp, Selous Safari camp, Sand river lodge or campsite. The dry season sets in during June to November and is the best time for game viewing along the rivers. Elephants come out of the bush at that time and predators are more commonly seen. January to April is wonderful for birdlife ad lush scenery but many roads become impassable after heavy rains. December to February is still good for game viewing but can be rather hot and humid. The safari lodges are usually closed from March to May..
