overview

Situated in the prime wildlife-viewing location of the mighty Selous Game Reserve, Siwandu promises an unparalleled safari experience in luxury tented accommodation. Ideal for romantics, the camp is divided into two sections to offer maximum privacy in this remote and beautiful location. Tents are dotted along the shores of Lake Nzerakera and sheltered by a palm forest - elephant and hippo frequently wander through the camp on their way to the lake.

As one of Africa's wildest and least known reserves, Selous Game Reserve offers incredible game viewing and you'll enjoy daily game drives in the reserve. You'll be able to spot members of the largest crocodile and hippo populations in Africa, and perhaps get the chance to see the rare African wild dog. Boat safaris on the Rufiji River depart from the camp's two jetties and you can also enjoy excellent bird watching and guided walking tours through the bush.

Traveller Reviews

  • The Selous Riverside Camp was awesome - I have told all my friends that they have to go there. The accomodations and food were incredible. The staff is A-1 and they cater to your every need.

"The wildlife passing the tents at regular intervals and the resident herd of impala was fantastic! The pick was the afternoon boat ride - concentration of crocodile was unbelievable."
