Selous Game Reserve
The Selous Game Reserve is Africa's largest protected wildlife reserve and covers more than 5% of Tanzania's total area. It's rivers, hills,and plains are home to roaming elephant populations, the area's famous wild dogs, and some of the last black rhino left in the region.
The Rufigi River Delta is a striking feature of the game reserve. It connects the Great Ruaha River with the Rufiji River and not far from the park boundaries empties out into the Indian Ocean along the Tanzanian Coast. The Rufiji River is the largest water catchment locations in the region, and as such, is home to a plethora of varied water and bird life. Along its shores, oppulent hippos sleep languidly in the mud and sun themselves, mouths wide open, as the river passes by. Crocodiles are also common along the Rufiji's riverbanks, their armour plated skins the only rough edges in the rivers incessant flow. Stiggler's Gorge, where the Great Ruaha River meets the Rufiji River, is a breathtaking example of the diversity and spectacular scenery along the game reserve's waterways.

Ruaha National Park
Ruaha lies 130 kilometers west of Iringa town. Its name derived from the Great Ruaha River, which flows through it creating spectacular gorges and scenery. Hippos, crocodiles, turtles and fish inhabit the river. The park is also known for its sable and roan antelopes, and its rich bird life. With herds of more than 10,000 elephants, vast concentrations of buffalo, gazelle, and over 400 bird species, Ruaha's limitless wilderness, together with the surrounding game reserves of Rungwa and Kisigo stretches over 40,000 square kilometres.
Elephants are found in some of the highest concentration in the country, travelling in matriarch-lead herds through ancient grazing lands and seasonal supplies of water. The Great Ruaha River is the main feature of the park ,and meanders through its borders. On its banks, the game viewing is spectacular, whether done by land or by water. Hippos yawn under the midday sun and crocodiles lie lazily along the banks. Fish eagles dive and swoop along the riverbanks, and at night the sound of frogs croaking happily in the reeds extends across the hills and plains.
