Selous Riverside Safari Camp

Feefo logo

Overview

Selous Riverside Safari Camp is hidden among emerald trees on the riverine fringes of Tanzania’s great Rufiji River. This enchanting waterway is the defining feature of Selous Game Reserve and the life-blood of substantial numbers of predators, the Big 5, Jurassic-sized crocodiles, over 60 000 elephants, and more than 430 recorded bird species. Although Selous is Africa’s largest game reserve (bigger than Switzerland), it remains relatively unknown to outsiders and is perhaps Tanzania’s best-kept secret.

Go on game drives, guided walks and boat safaris to explore a phenomenally untamed and unbelievably beautiful environment – a photographer’s paradise and a treasure for any wildlife enthusiast. This authentic safari camp’s tranquil and secluded river setting ensures a sense of utmost relaxation throughout your stay, the ideal place to go off the grid completely.

  • Guided nature walks in an untouched wilderness
  • Boat safaris on the Rufiji River

Selous Riverside Safari Camp

We had a wonderful time on the safari. The Selous Riverside Camp was very nice, as was their entire staff. Rahma was a very knowledgeable tour guide and gave extra effort to find the locations with the animals that we were most looking for. Clive and Rain were gracious hosts and they run a very clean and comfortable camp. The food was very good. I would recommend your company and the Selous Riverside Camp to all of my friends.

Selous-my favorite part of the trip. Loved the ability to do walking and river safaris. We did three walking safaris and learned so much. Enjoyed being close up and learning much more about the insects, mammals and vegetation. Saw less animals, bu t thoroughly enjoyed the area and the lack of crowds. Loved the facility and the management there is excellent.
