The airports / airstrips of the Selous

Mtemere, Matambwe, Siwandu, Beho Beho, Kiba, Sumbazi, Stiegler's Gorge

Africa's largest game reserve is the Selous, with an area of over 50 000 sq km. An untamed wilderness, where animals roam freely without borders other than those created by nature and human settlement. 

There is no airport called 'Selous'. Instead, there are a number of airstrips servicing the tourism destimations within the reserve. 

The traveller flies into the airstrip most conveniently located for the pick-up and transfer to their booked accommodations. 

The most frequently used of the airstrips is Mtemere, (GPS coordinates: 07 45 01S 038 12 47E) but this is of little significance as the airlines flying to the Selous will land and leave from wherever there arebooked and paid passengers. Aircraft will leave their primary departure point knowing where each passenger needs to be dropped, and where others need to be picked-up. 

Effectively, it's a circuit, serviced according to demand.

Watch the planes coming in fly over the strip to ensure that it is clear of wild animals.
