Overview of Siwandu

Situated in the prime wildlife-viewing location of the mighty Nyerere National Park (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, Nyerere National Park 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.

    Tent

    Spacious, octagonal tents of canvas and secure mosquito netting, topped in thatch, not only allows for constant air-flow, but also allows you to see animals that may saunter past through camp. The design of the tents takes you back to the safari days of old, and everything about them is supremely comfortable. The outdoor, solar-heated shower is a beautiful addition as well as the sofa in front of the tent, to relax during leisure hours in this wild landscape.

    General Facilities

    Each of the two sections of the camp has its own swimming pool and fully stocked bar where you can relax without being bothered by large crowds.

    The lounge areas feature large, comfortable sofas, beautiful views over the surrounding wilderness and a wildlife reference library where you can learn more about the animals you’ve spotted during the day.

    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.

      All the flights were on time, all the transports were waiting for us as planned and were very friendly and professional, so all the coordination on your end was really terrific. We loved both Ras Kutani and the Siwandu safari resort. We were treated very well in both places. The managers and staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. The accommodations were lovely and quite comfortable. The beach was great, and the safari outstanding.
