Tanzania: one of the last frontiers of Africa with its vast plains and Rift Valley.

Tanzania has the finest wildlife in Africa, and abounds in a wide variety of animal and bird life. Buffalo, lion, and elephant are known for quality in Tanzania.

In addition to the world famous mountain Kilimanjaro, the country is noted for its spectacular game parks, scenery, and wide variety of game animals found nowhere else in Africa. Who among us has not wanted to witness the spectacle of the magnificent migration of millions of wildebeest, zebra, and antelope as they move southward into the plains of Tanzania!

The Selous Game Reserve is located in the southeast part of the country, and consists of nearly 55,000 square kilometers. It is the largest safari area in Tanzania, if not all of Africa, and is totally uninhabited by either people or livestock. The Selous is crossed by a number of rivers such as the Rufiji, Ruaha, and Kilombero, and is noted for its large population of buffalo, lion, leopard, hyena,elephant, crocodile, hippo sable, roan, waterbuck, wildebeest, zebra, kongoni, bushbuck, and a wide variety of other antelope. The vegetation is mainly miombo and mopane bush with dense thickets, open plains, and a wide variety of large trees and thick brush along the riverline areas. It is perhaps the most scenic of all hunting areas in the country.

Tanzania is known for excellent buffalo with heavy bosses and good width. Elephant are plentiful and of good quality with thinner but longer ivory than in other countries. Recent increased concession costs and increased trophy fees have made Tanzania a more expensive safari destination, but still worth consideration for a unique safari.
