Big Game hunting in the Selous – Tanzania
The famous Selous Game Reserve
Welcome to some of the best big five hunting in Tanzania
The 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 buried 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. The Selous offers some of the best areas for hunting Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Wildebeest, Hartebeest, Impala, Warthog, Eland, Sable and Greater Kudu in Tanzania. Our partner in the Selous is Luke Samaras. Born and raised in Tanzania, he has over 40 years of hunting experience and a unique knowledge of this vast land. He is hunting 4 different blocks in the Selous which offers a huge variety of game and landscape.
