Selous Game Reserve safari is part of the Art in Tanzania sustainable travel programs. The task is to raise funds for the NGO community work as we operate as a self-sustainable entity.
The Selous Game Reserve is a protected area in southern Tanzania. It covers an area of 50,000 km2 (19,000 sq mi) and has additional buffer zones. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982 due to its wildlife diversity and undisturbed nature. Some of the diverse wildlife of the miombo include the African bush elephant, south-central black rhinoceros, hippopotamus, lion, African wild dog, African buffalo, Masai giraffe, Plains zebra and Nile crocodile.
