Tanzania - Touring Holidays
Spot the ‘Big Five’ on thrilling game drives and study exciting bird and mammal life in Tanzania.
At 56,000 square kilometres, Selous Game Reserve is roughly the size of Ireland and is home to a rich variety of wildlife, including one of the largest elephant populations in the whole of Africa. There are also some 150,000 buffalo, 40,000 hippos, 1,500 African hunting dogs, 4,000 lions and several hundred thousand antelope. Birds are also in abundance here, with more than 440 species recorded at the last count. As the reserve is so vast you’re unlikely to see another human during your game drive, but hopefully you will tick off a huge list of wildlife including the ‘Big Five’.
Look out for a variety of wildlife species at Lake Tagalala. The lake is famed for its massive crocodile numbers, rare birds including the African skimmer and the only recorded Humblots heron on the entire continent’s mainland.
