Tanzania Buffalo in the Selous Game Reserve

Outfitter #482

September and October

Hunt the famed Selous wildlife reserve in Tanzania for Cape buffalo, plainsgame and more. Custom packages may be set up for leopard, lion, etc.


The Selous is a multimillion acre world heritage site, and boasts some of the wildest country in Africa. Our outfitter has had some of the best blocks in the Selous since 1986, and they are well looked after.

Cape buffalo are plentiful and success is generally 100%.

You will stay in east Africa style tents, eat in a thatched roof open mess, and hunt with some of Tanzania’s best PH’s.  You can often hear lions roaring right from camp, and you begin your hunting as soon as you pull out each morning.

There isn’t much of Africa that still this wild, and the Selous is a place every serious Africa hunter should experience.
