Selous Game Reserve
is an extremely large and important conservation area located in Southern Tanzania.

Selous is the only major safari reserve to be located on the coast, which means that it has an unusually humid climate and a very languid atmosphere. It is particularly well known for its motorboat safari out on the Great Rufiji River and walking safari is also widely offered. African wild dogs are a particular speciality. There is an unusually broad range of camps and lodges to choose from.

The main potential downsides for Selous are that the wildlife viewing is not as strong as one might hope, there can be significant vehicle clustering in core areas, the area has a reputation for a lower standard of safari guiding and the reserve experiences serious poaching. Some people may find the hot and humid climate to be less than ideal for safari.
