1896 CE • Selous Game Reserve
"The Selous Game Reserve is located in southern Tanzania and is Africa’s largest game reserve — three times the size of South Africa’s Kruger National Park, and twice the size of the Serengeti National Park. The reserve is relatively unimpacted by human activity, and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982 due to the diversity of the wildlife. This includes one of the most significant concentrations of elephant and black rhinoceros in Africa, alongside high numbers of cheetah, giraffe, crocodile and hippo."
