Hunting Areas


Selous Game Reserve is situated in the southern part of Tanzania and named after Frederick Courtney Selous, a famous hunter and naturalist who was killed and burried there in the First World War. It is uninhabited and divided into some 46 hunting blocks, varying in size from 300 to 500 square miles. The size of each block has been determined from its topographical situation and game concentration.

The vegetation is mainly ‘miombo’ bush with dense thickets in some areas. Some of the largest rivers in Tanzania flow through the Selous. Game that can be taken in the Reserve includes elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, wildebeest, hartebeest, impala, warthog, eland, sable and greater kudu.
