Select Worldwide Hunting Safaris partnered with Heritage Safaris to offer you world-class trophy hunting in Tanzania.
In the true tradition of wild Africa, Heritage Safaris specializes in dangerous game hunting (Buffalo, Crocodile, Elephant, Hippo, Leopard & Lion) as well as plains game hunting of species not typically found in other regions (Lichtenstein hartebeest, Roosevelt Sable, Nyasa Wildebeest, etc). Because of the extensive and expansive nature of our hunting concession Heritage Safaris relies on experienced and fully qualified trackers thoroughly familiar with the terrain and geographical features of the landscape, as well as the habits and movements of the game species, to heighten the success of our hunters. These are true professionals, who love and live for what they do. Applied methods of hunting are spot-and-stalk, tracking, hunting from blinds, etc.
There are minimum caliber requirements in Tanzania; .240 for plains game and .375 for dangerous game. Bow hunting is permitted. The use of automatic weapons and hand guns are prohibited.
The fleet of hunting vehicles are reliable, fully equipped, rugged vehicles suitable for the rigors of the African bush.
The hunting season in Tanzania is open from 1st of July to 30 November.
Heritage Safaris operates in the Selous Game Reserve in blocks U4, LR1, LR2 & MS1 consisting of 480,000 hectares (over 1.1M acres) of pristine African wilderness specifically set aside for world-class dangerous game and plains game hunting without equal, and designed by nature to challenge you and your senses. Most of the terrain in Tanzania is dry savannah. However, in some areas, especially in the Selous Region, there are fairly dense forests.
The Selous Game Reserve is one of the oldest and largest reserves in all of Africa; 4 times the size of the famed Serengeti, and larger than Switzerland. The Selous contains globally significant populations of Buffalo, Elephant, Lion, Leopards and many other species. Within the Selous there is no habitation, no cultivation, no cattle and no fences. Access to the Selous is strictly controlled, and limited to the clients, invited guests, and staff of the registered safari companies approved by the Tanzanian Government.
The Selous, Africa’s Largest and Oldest Game Reserve
The hunting camp is accessed from Dar es Salaam via private air charter or vehicle, which we arrange on behalf of our clients. The camp is located directly on the banks of the mighty Rufiji River. Hippo and crocodile bask on the sandbars of the Rufiji River mere meters from the banks of our camp where there is spectacular Tiger fishing when one wants a period of relaxation.
The camp is erected anew at the beginning of each safari season and consists of a thatched roof, open air dining rondavel where daily meals are served at a spacious table with comfortable seating. A generously stocked kitchen with refrigerator and freezer are adjacent to the dining area. Three fully and freshly prepared sumptuous meals along with evening appetizers around the boma fire are served daily.
Successful hunts result in the preparation of delicious game dishes. Under the same thatched roof is a comfortable seating area with sofas, chairs and tables for relaxing after meals. Outside a pleasant fire pit is located where clients can enjoy the traditional “sun downer” while gazing at the stunning sunsets across the Rufiji River.
The floored sleeping tents are spacious, airy, and equipped with electricity (solar power and generator), enclosed shower, lavatory (sink with running water & flush toilets); hot water is on demand. Clients sleep in real beds with full service linen. Daily laundry service is included. The camp is also equipped with Satellite phones and limited Wi-Fi.
In short, the entire camp operation is structured to provide all the basic comforts of home in a wilderness setting without having to endure the discomfort of a rugged environment.
