General Information

Selous Safari Camp blends in superbly with its natural surroundings in what is one of the most photogenic areas of the Selous Game Reserve. All safari tents are widely spaced along the lakeshore ensuring maximum privacy and wonderful views. Each tent sits atop its own raised timber platform with two large verandahs on either side where one can sit with a cup of tea in the morning watching the bush come to life at sunrise, or nursing a gin and tonic as the bush gets ready for the night at sunset.

The spacious tents are luxuriously appointed, with en-suite bathrooms and open-air hot water showers. Ceiling fans are present in all the rooms situated above the king sizes beds where guests can rest away the exertions of the morning activity and cool down during the heat of the day before heading out again later.

The camp as a whole is comprised of two separate camps, North and South. North camp possessing 6 tents and South camp with 7 tents. In this way, there is never the feeling of having too many people around and each camp can provide a high level of seclusion enabling guests to become familiar with all their fellow travellers as well as the staff. Each section has its own swimming pool, well stocked bar and dining area, and each has its own kitchen where chefs produce the finest cuisine. All meals are complimented by a good wine selection. No movement between camps is required as each has its own host, game viewing vehicles, jetty for boat safaris and walking guides

Hippos moving through the camp are a nightly occurence and some of Selous’ elephant frequently meander between the tents looking for a late night snack. The African sound of whooping hyenas and bellowing hippos is a constant background medley throughout the night causing the more wary traveller to check tent zips are secured.

Location

Selous Safari Camp is located in the Selous Game Reserve on the shores of Lake Nzerakera, a massive lake joining the Rufiji River.
