Selous is the largest protected wildlife area in Africa. The Reserve is named after the famous hunter-explorer Fredrick Courtney Selous (1851 1917), from Britain. The environment of the Reserve is both striking and diverse, from rolling Miombo ,savannah woodland, thickets, grassland plains, rocky and ruggedness terrain to the several watercourses (Lakes and rivers). This landscape is largely broken up by the mighty Rufiji River, which forms the most extensive catchment area in the whole of East Africa. The river is more than one kilometer wide as it flows into the Indian Ocean. The Rufiji is fed by three main rivers, the Kilombero, Luwegu, and Great Ruaha.
