The Selous Game Reserve is the largest protected wet wilderness area in Africa and indeed in the world. It is 54,000 square miles, making up almost 6% of Tanzania's land surface.
The park was originally gazetted by the German Colonial Government in 1905 and was renamed by the British after World War I when Germany lost the war.
The park has undergone a number of changes and was originally created for hunters who were attracted to the huge elephant herds of southern Tanzania. After independence, Tanzania's first President, Julius Nyerere, placed a high priority on conservation and protection of wildlife and expanded the Selous Game Reserve to its present boundaries.
