      Siwandu (formerly Selous Safari Camp)

      Picture the Wild Selous

      Siwandu is delightfully situated within an open palm forest on the shores of Lake Nzerakera, a massive lake adjoining the Great Rufiji River. Blending in superbly with its natural surroundings in what is one of the most photogenic areas of the Selous Game Reserve. The camp has prime position at the center of this unique riverine and lake complex, with the highest concentration of African wildlife and myriad birdlife. There are no fences and no artificial modifications so animals may wander freely through the camp and often do. Hippos moving through the camp are a nightly occurrence and some of Selous’ elephants 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 traveler to check tent zips are secured. The camp as a whole is comprised of two separate camps, North and South. North Camp possessing six tents and South Camp with seven tents. In this way, there is never the feeling of having too many people around. Each section has its own swimming pool, well stocked bar and dining area, and each has its own well supplied kitchen where our 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. 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-sized 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. Selous Safari Camp offers an exceptionally large array of activities to choose from be it by boat, vehicle or foot, your guides will personally tailor all activities to suit the guest so that they get the most out of the reserve in the time they have available. All Selous activities generally go out after breakfast, quite different to other places due to the topography of the land and the animals dependence on drinking water. The main game movements in Selous occur a little later in the day as most animals make their way down to the lakes to drink only after the sun has come up. Night drives are not allowed in Selous.

        Off-Road Game Viewing

        In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road.
