The Selous & Ruaha

Why Visit

Southern Tanzania features two contrasting landscapes, one a Game Reserve and the other a National Park. The Selous Game Reserve is vast and home to the mighty Rufiji River, drawing wildlife from a vast area especially in the drier months. Ruaha National Park is well off the beaten track, at higher altitude and with a sense of remoteness hard to find in many mainstream safari areas. Both have excellent wildlife viewing.  

About the Selous and Ruaha

A combination of these two areas gives a very real chance of seeing wild dogs, incredible birdlife and big cats. Diversity of wildlife and activities are the buzz-words here - days on safari in boats on the Rufiji, walking with guides and experiencing a very interactive and authentic safari. Both areas are home to the big cats plus large plains game, Ruaha is one of the few places where you can spend a day without seeing other vehicles.    

  • Walk with armed rangers and track the big game
  • Enjoy sundowners after a boat trip along the Rufiji
  • Stay at simple authentic bush camps or top-end lodges
  • Explore with some of the most knowledgeable guides in East Africa
  • Experience contrasts – the rugged beauty of Ruaha and the delta-like lushness of the Selous
