10 photos to ignite your wanderlust to Selous, Tanzania

Selous is one of the largest reserves in the world. Unfortunately, because it’s considered a game reserve and not a national park, the Tanzanian government still allows people to shoot some animals in certain areas. However, when you go to the Lake Manze area, you will never be disturbed by hunters. Shortly after rainy season (June, July), Selous is green and lush and the animals are widespread, which means you won’t get to see as many in comparison to dry season.

When the water is still plenty, you’ll find lots of hippos, crocodiles, elephants, giraffes, impalas, wildebeests, baboons, and a variety of birds. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot buffaloes, and if you’re very lucky lions and leopards.

During dry season (starting September/October going into December/January), you’re guaranteed to spot all animals more easily because they will all flock to the water.
