The climate is tropical, with two rainy seasons; from January – March it is hot with occasional showers. The heaviest rains are between March – May.

Although it remains one of the least scientifically researched areas in Africa, some 1700 botanical species have been identified. In the far south, the vastness of the reserve and its general inaccessibility has turned the Selous into a magnificent refuge for animals, birds, insects and reptiles.
