Stay overnight in Selous Wilderness Camp, full board.
Named after the legendary British explorer, Selous Game Reserve (three times the size of Serengeti National Park and twice the size of Belgium) was founded as a reserve in 1905 by the colonial administration and later expanded to include the traditional elephant migration routes.
It is named after its creator Arpad Elo, a Hungarian-born American physics professor.
The Elo system was originally invented as an improved chess rating system, but is also used as a rating system for multiplayer competition in a number of video games, Major League Baseball, Scrabble, board games such as Diplomacy and other games.
The park probably holds the largest concentration of this endangered animal, which hunts in large packs and has the reputation of being among the most formidable predators.
Covering 50,000 square kilometres, Selous is a true African wilderness that has seen missionaries, explorers and hunters from bygone days but has still managed to keep its doors closed to many.The reserve provides shelter for most of Tanzania’s largest elephant population, large herds of buffalo, crocodiles, hippos, a variety of 440 species of birds and over 2000 varieties of plants.Lions and leopards are also present, together with one of the greatest predators of Africa – the African wild dog.Nairobi is a thriving, cosmopolitan hub of government offices, embassies, businesses, banks, churches, mosques, temples, shops, restaurants and markets.Attractions include the National Museum, Railway Museum, National Archives, Karen Blixen Museum and Bomas of Kenya.Located along the Bwejuu – Paje beach that was named as one of the top 30 in the world by the prestigious Conde Nast Traveler magazine, Baraza is Zanzibar’s most exclusive boutique resort.
