The diverse Selous Game Reserve is one of the few places in the world whose ecology and biological processes are totally undisturbed by man. For that matter Selous Game Reserve is the 2nd largest remaining wilderness in Africa covering 44800kmsq. The life line of Selous is the river Rufiji which flows across the Reserve and covers the large parts of the wooded grasslands of the northern Selous, caused by the seasonal floods of the rising water of the Rufiji River. The grasslands creates a very dynamic ecosystem including a diverse range of wildlife with significant predator/prey relationships. Selous Game Reserve harbours one of the most significant concentrations of elephant, black rhinoceros, cheetah, giraffe, hippopotamus and crocodile, amongst many other species. It is in fact a UNESCO world heritage site due to the diversity of its wildlife and undisturbed nature.
