Tanzania’s hidden gem in the south, Selous Game Reserve, is the largest protected game reserve on the African continent, twice the size of the Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania and three times Kruger National Park in South Africa. It covers an area of 54,600 square kilometers: vast wilderness with forests, grassy plains, mountains and open woodlands. The reserve was originally named after Frederick Selous Courtney who was a great hunter and explorer, and has been renamed Nyerere National Park, in honour of President Julius Nyerere, Tanzania’s first president.
