Here’s why you need to visit Nyerere National Park:
It’s Massive! It’s Isolated.
The Selous Game Reserve was established in 1922 making it the first wildlife reserve in Africa. Not only is Selous the oldest reserve but it is also the largest with a size of 50,000 sq km before it was turned into a National Park. Because the park is located in such a secluded place, it doesn’t have the sort of crowd that other wildlife parks have.
According to UNESCO, there more than 2,000 species of plants in Nyerere and all those plants mean that there are many more animals lurking around behind every tree.
