The Selous Game Reserve encompasses 55,000 square kilometers of wilderness. At well over twice the size of the Kruger National Park, the Selous Reserve is one of the largest wildlife sanctuaries anywhere. The Selous is world renowned for its wild character and large populations of elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, crocodile and African wild dog. Within this special place, deep in its southern reaches and far from anyone else, you find Lukula Selous. Lukula Selous is a private photographic sanctuary of over 300,000 acres where only one group of guests is permitted into the entire area at any given time. The group may be an individual, a couple, a family or a private group of friends or colleagues, up to a maximum of eight people, with no age limits. We only host guests for five months of the year, from July through November, during the dry season when the animals concentrate along the waterways that meander through this sector of the Reserve. Privacy and complete freedom capture the spirit of Lukula Selous. Select, small groups and individuals have the opportunity to explore this wilderness in complete privacy and with complete freedom under expert guidance only. The minimum stay is four nights, but if guests wish to enjoy longer canoeing safaris and camp-outs with an authentic ‘portered’ fly camp to explore the different sectors of the area, we recommend longer stays of up to one week or more. Lukula Selous boasts a diverse habitat ranging from open flood plains interspersed with dense riparian forests that border the Lukula, Luwegu and Chi rivers, to open savanna, which recedes to forested, rolling hills and steep ridges of exposed rock. A landscape seldom visited and unchanged by man, rich in wildlife and spectacular with nature.
