Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania


Named after Frederick Selous, a naturalist, explorer, and soldier, Selous Game Reserve is the largest wildlife sanctuary in Africa. With an area of 50,000 square km, it is host to rivers such as the Kilombero, Ruaha, and Rufiji. Its vegetation is woodland, with patches of dense hardwood forest and some of the finest virgin bush left in Africa. The reserve, established in 1922, holds one of the largest remaining concentrations of big-tusked elephants and large-maned lions, as well as such other mammals as buffalo, leopard, rhinoceros, zebra, and various antelopes. This virtually inaccessible reserve was opened to visitors in 1963 when hunting tracks were constructed. [—Adapted from Encyclopedia Britannica, 2004]
