February 1, 2017

Tanzania has the second largest number of bird species in Africa (over 1,115 spc) and the Selous is home to more than 430 of these.

Recently Gerard Desroches went on a Tanzania safari and visited the Selous Game Reserve (where he stayed at Selous Impala camp)  and the Ruaha National Park. Here are just a few of his photos of some of the bigger birds in Selous.

We recommend you try Selous Impala camp or Lake Manze camp for a birding safari in this area. These camps are 8-12 tents, with great guiding and max 4 persons per vehicle on game drives.

Ask for their 4 for 3 special rates in low season.
