Major highlight in this 12day safari is the Selous Game Reserve - the largest protected wilderness in Africa, three times larger than Serengeti and twice the size of Belgium. Selous is remote and off beaten and sometimes gives the traveller much more to see and do and lots of privacy due to low volumes of tourist traffic - suited for those clients who want more that just the ordinary.
