When to Visit

Selous Game Reserve is best visited between the months of June and February. The camp is seasonal and closes at the end of March through to the 1st June. The dry season is from June to end October November time and during this period the park dries up and the temperatures increase until the rains break. The rain is heavy but short lived with wonderful clear skies following a downpour. The river fills up and birdlife is supplemented by migrant species.
