The Selous – Niassa Miombo woodland ecosystem as a whole is the largest trans-boundary natural dry forest ecosystem in Africa covering 150,000 km2 and extends across southern Tanzania into neighbouring Mozambique. The wide variety of wildlife habitats – forests, wooded grasslands, open savannahs, granite inselbergs, seasonal and permanent wetlands and rivers – account for globally significant biodiversity. The core conservation areas for its continued existence are:
- the Selous Game Reserve (47.000 km2) of Tanzania, UNESCO World Heritage-Site
- the Niassa Game Reserve (42.400 km2) of Mozambique
The Selous – Niassa Wildlife Corridor provides a significant biological link between the two reserves and consequently for the Miombo woodland eco-system, thus conserving one of the largest elephant ranges in the world containing also approximately 13% of the world’s remaining wild dog population.
Lake Tanganyika and Lake Malawi are part of the Southern Rift Valley with dramatic views and extremely deep lakes.
South – Eastern Tanzania and Northern Mozambique do not attract mass tourism thus making it very appealing for those who would like to experience very individualised services.
Malawi, fondly referred to as the “WARM HEART OF AFRICA” is truly one of the best places to experience real Africa. This is a destination for people who would like to see and appreciate Africa as it is. Every place you visit, the people are very friendly and helpful.
