      Beho Beho

      Stone Cottages with River Views in Tanzania

      Beho Beho is known as wansalishi which means the pioneer when translated from Swahili. The first camp in the northern sector of the Selous game reserve, its stone cottages, perched on the lower slopes of Namikwera Hill overlooking Kipalala Hill, offer panoramic views over the Rufiji River flood plain. Located 145 miles southwest of Dar es Salaam, as the crow flies, the camp is 3 miles from the grave of Frederick Courteney Selous. Beho Beho has eight individual, very spacious Bandas, (stone-built and palm-thatched cottages) furnished with king-sized beds, Zanzibari day beds, writing desks and comfortable furniture. The front of the banda is totally open and extends on to a spacious verandah. The banda can be secured for the night with 'tented curtains' or left open as desired. Each banda has a separate dressing room leading into an en-suite bathroom with twin basins, high flush WC and an 'open air' shower. The main lodge is furnished in the style of a private house with comfortable seating and dining areas the most noticeable thing is that there are few walls. Shaded and protected by a huge palm-thatched roof, there is also a full-sized billiards table, the Eagle's Nest for private dining and lots of cozy nooks. Meals are a moveable feast and are not confined to the formal dining area. There are several lookouts where breakfast and lunch are served and of course areas for dining under the stars. Bush breakfasts and picnics are also arranged for longer safaris. The swimming pool has magnificent views along the Kipalala valley. There are many areas offering private sunbathing or quiet relaxation in the shade. Game drives are in special adapted 4WD vehicles which offer raised seating for better game viewing. Game drives are best taken early in the morning or at dusk. Game walks in the wilderness of Africa will be yours as you walk through the bush in the vicinity of Beho Beho. Many different tracks can be followed with either a circular walk returning to the camp or a pre-arranged location can be made for you to be collected by a safari vehicle. Or enjoy a boat safari, after a short game drive you will arrive at Lake Tagalala for your boating safari. The lake is surrounded by a number of natural springs which attracts amazing birdlife as well as large hippo and crocodile populations. After a bush breakfast a short walk takes you to the hot sulphur springs, Maji Moto, where you swim in the deep natural pools before returning to Beho Beho.
