Standing as the largest game reserve in Africa, Selous is also the second largest conservation area in Africa sized at 5,000 square kilometres. It is definitely noted as even four times bigger than the Serengeti. While in Tanzania, it is very special to take a safari to Selous as it is one of the most remote game reserves hence least visited parks in Africa. 
This reserve has a higher density and diversity of species than any other Miombo woodland area; there are more than 2,100 plants which have been recorded and more are thought to exist in the remote forests in the south.
Similarly, the reserve protects an impressive large mammal fauna as it contains globally significant populations of African elephant , black rhinoceros  and wild hunting dogs . It also includes one of the world’s largest known populations of hippopotamus  and buffalo.
There are also important populations of ungulates including sable antelope , Lichtenstein’s hartebeest , greater kudu , eland  and Nyassa wildebeest .
In addition, there is also a large number of Nile crocodile and 350 species of birds, including the endemic Udzungwa forest partridge  and the rufous-winged sunbird.
Because of this high density and diversity of species, the Selous Game Reserve is a natural habitat of outstanding importance for in-situ conservation of biological diversity.
