ABOUT NYERERE NATIONAL PARK

The Selous stretches for over 45,000 square kilometers. It is Africa’s largest game reserve, yet visited by few. Meandering through the plains and woodlands, the Rufiji River gives rise to a labyrinth of streams, channels, and pretty lakes in a delicate water paradise.

Skeletal leadwood trees stand in glassy lagoons where terrapins ripple the surface. There are perfect pods of hippos, rainbow-colored birds, and flitting butterflies on yellow cassia flowers. It is a vast wilderness area and superb for photography.

Wildlife Of The Nyerere National Park

There is abundant game in the reserve, with Africa’s largest buffalo and lion populations, numerous leopards and thriving packs of wild dogs. Wildebeest, zebra, impala, hartebeest, greater kudu and eland are all common.

In the heat of the afternoon, herds of over fifty giraffes drink from the lakes, whilst elephant herds cross the channels to the lush islands.

Boat Trips In Nyerere National Park

Boat trips are a speciality in the Selous and floating quietly along on the water is magical. You will see yellow-billed storks nesting in borassus palms, baboons at the water’s edge and white-crowned plovers cleaning the teeth of crocodiles. The riverine forest is perfect for gentle rambles in search of blue samango monkeys and black and white colobus.

Driving in open 4x4s, you will see plenty of games but no other vehicles, as the Selous is a very peaceful park with only a handful of small camps
