Selous & Ruaha

The Selous - an enormous, little-known game reserve with World Heritage listing. The Rufiji River flows through the northern part of the reserve and it is here that the wildlife accumulates. There are great herds of elephants and pods of hippos plus, if you're lucky, the beautiful sable antelope and endangered painted hunting dog. The local giraffe population is large - hence the nickname Giraffic Park!  Ruaha, further south west is similar but even more untouched and remote.  Wild!
