Covering 50,000 square kilometres, the Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest protected areas in Africa and as such it remains largely undisturbed by human impact. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to some of the highest concentrations of important species including elephant, black rhinoceros, cheetah, giraffe, hippopotamus and crocodile.
