It is Africa's biggest game reserve, yet visited by few. Meandering through the woodlands and plains, the Rufij River gives rise to a labyrinth of stream, pretty lakes and channels in a delicate water paradise. Here are some of the best attractions of Selous:
Stieglers Gorge, which averages hundred meter in depth, is named after Swiss explorer who was killed here by an elephant in 1907. It has more recently gained focus as the place of a planned huge hydroelectric power station.
THE Grave of explorer and hunter Frederick Courteney Selous, who was killed in this place in 1917.
This is a plentiful game in the reserve, with Africa's biggest lion and buffalo populations, numerous leopard and thriving packs of wild dog. Zebra, wildebeest, hartebeest, greater kudu, and eland are all general. In the heat of the afternoon, herds of over 50 giraffe drink from the lakes, whilst elephant herds cross the channels to the green islands.
The day's activities tend to target on traveling by boat or walking, with overnight accommodation in simple dome tents, with warm bucket showers rigged in trees and green bush dinners set out at the water's edge.
