Wallace, a rock in the back row for both Munster and Ireland, will be continuing a family tradition of playing for the Lions.
A versatile back-rower, Wallace will be hoping to make it second time lucky with the Lions having been part of the 2001 party that lost the series in Australia.
The Munster forward failed to make a huge impact on the Test team eight years ago but looks a certain starter for Ian McGeechan in South Africa.
The 32-year-old, who can feature at six, seven or eight, made his debut for Ireland against Argentina in 2000 but did not become a regular until 2006.
Now a permanent fixture for his country, Wallace helped secure Grand Slam glory earlier this year having already helped Munster become the kings of Europe on two occasions.
His selection sees him continue a family tradition with the Lions, following in the footsteps of older brothers Richard and David, who also represented Britain and Ireland during their playing careers.
