Exploring the Selous Reserve

Nothing screams significance and individuality like being designated by the UNESCO as a world heritage site. Selous game reserve can proudly claim that title and so much more with its never-ending wildlife diversity and scenic landscapes its a sight for sore eyes. The park is situated in the heart of Tanzania. Starting its life as a declared protected area by the German Governor of Tanganyika Hermann von Wissmann with its status being changed in 1905 to a hunting reserve and named after Fredrick Selous. Up till today, the park is still occupied by many of the typical wildlife of the miombo inhabitants such as black rhinos, lions, East African wild dog, Massai giraffe, and plains zebra including so much more making it a variant enclosure of wildlife. The game reserve is also filled with many interesting areas such as the Rufiji River that flows into the Indian ocean opposite of Mafia island, Stiegler Goerge a canyon of 100 meters depth and width. Most of the reserve remains looked over for game hunting purposes through privately leased hunting concessions. Nevertheless, a large area of the reserve nearing Rufuji river has been designated as a Photographer zone and serves as a popular tourist attraction.
