Welcome to Selous Game Reserve
Only the section of the reserve north from the Rufiji River is open for tourism; large areas of the south are zoned as hunting concessions. Yet the wealth of Selous' wildlife and its stunning riverine scenery rarely fail to impress. Another draw is the Selous' relative lack of congestion in comparison with Tanzania's northern parks.
Visit soon, however: much of Selous' wealth is under threat from poaching, a uranium mining project and a planned hydroelectric power project along the Rufiji River.
