The Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest faunal reserves of the world, located in the south of Tanzania. It was named after Englishman Sir Frederick Selous, a famous big game hunter and early conservationist, who died at Beho Beho in this territory in 1917 while fighting against the Germans during World War I. Scottish explorer and cartographer Keith Johnston also died at Beho Beho in 1879 while leading a RSGS expedition to the Great Lakes of Africa with Joseph Thomson. The Selous was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982 due to the diversity of its wildlife and undisturbed nature.

The reserve covers a total area of 54,600 km2 (21,100 sq mi) and has additional buffer zones. Within the reserve no permanent human habitation or permanent structures are permitted. All (human) entry and exit is carefully controlled by the Wildlife Division of the Tanzanian Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism. Some of the typical animals of the savanna (for example elephants, hippopotami, African wild dog, cape buffalo and crocodiles) can be found in this park in larger numbers than in any other African game reserve or national park.

Rain drops ......i seeee............. you are useful

I think the tourism board has an home work to do.....that is aggressive marketing of tourism products such as THIS FORGOTTEN SELOUS GAME RESERVE,SOUTHERN CIRCUITS AT LARGE AND MWANZA CITY....because Most people outside our boarders know only about Serengeti,Zanzibar may be and some still think Mt K'njaro is in Kenya

Yap. It unfortunately doesn't get enough promotion, even though its the largest game reserve in the world, largest fauna and a unesco world heritage site.
