Nyerere National Park (formerly known as Selous Game Reserve) is a vast 30,000 square km swathe of untamed wilderness in Southern Tanzania, teeming with game.
Nyerere is an excellent destination for the safari connoisseur as well as first-timers who would like to explore the wilderness by boat and on foot as well as in vehicles.
The Great Rufiji River meanders through the reserve and a highlight of staying in Nyerere is a peaceful cruise around the oxbow lakes and drifting down the river along doum-palmed banks abundant with crocodiles, hippos and a wide variety of birdlife. Another highlight is the walking safaris, which teach you about the habitat and flora and fauna, giving you a fascinating and different dimension to your safari.
Game drives are abundant with animals and elephant and giraffe are commonly seen, as well as lion, kudu, sable and the rare wild-dog, for which Nyerere is famous.
