Heritage Safaris Articles

Conservation, and sustaining natural wildlife to thrive in the Selous is extremely important to Heritage Safaris.

Tanzania is the biggest country in East Africa, the hunting districts amongst the best in Africa and the game populations are very well controlled. The country has set-aside one quarter of its total land as wildlife habitat, a strict game management program is carried out and constant efforts are made to control poaching.

Heritage Safaris contributes annually to the private conservation efforts of Luke Samaras Ltd to ensure the longevity of the Selous species and communities in Tanzania.

The plan was perfect; we'd slipped into the blind during the pre-dawn darkness with minimal fuss and now all we had to do was wait for the sun to rise.
