SELOUS

Starting from € 650 per person per day sharing

General

With just eight canvas tented rooms, each with air-cooling systems over your bed to ensure a peaceful night’s sleep in the hotter months, this is the perfect balance between comfort and adventure.

The open-sided mess area under stretched canvas offers plentiful shade and catches the breeze whichever way the wind is blowing. In the evening gather at the mess tent to share stories of your day’s adventures with fellow guests, enjoying a delicious dinner surrounded by the night-time sounds of the bush.

All meals are prepared in camp by the resident chefs, and are usually enjoyed communally. Breakfast is served buffet-style so you can choose from a lighter start to your day or a full cooked breakfast if you’ve worked up an appetite on your early morning safari. Light buffet-style lunches in camp include fresh salads and vegetables with your main course. Tea and cake at 4pm are a camp tradition and set you up for your afternoon safari, and dinner is a relaxed three-course affair, often served under the African night sky.

Tucked away into the trees, each of the eight tents are set far apart to maximise privacy. They are stylish and spacious, measuring an impressive 60m² inside. Thoughtful details include an evening breeze cooling system over the bed to allow you to sleep peacefully even during the hotter months, and a beautiful wall hanging separating the en-suite bathroom, complete with indoor and outdoor shower. A veranda offers a shady spot to unwind during the heat of the day and watch game as it passes through camp.

The very best time for rewarding game viewing is in the cooler early mornings and late afternoons, when the animals are at their most active. Depending on the season, your day may start slightly earlier or later, but the general pace of life in camp is focused on giving you the very best possible game-viewing experience.

Area Information

This enchanting Camp lies in the very heart of the photographic sector of the Selous Game Reserve, a prime position for game-viewing and exploring this rugged and beautiful region. Set on a hill overlooking the water, it sits close to a key waterway which links Lake Manze to Lake Nzerakera, where pods of hippos wallow and fish eagles perch on branches in search of their next catch. The camp is truly immersed in this wild environment, and it’s not uncommon to find a giraffe wandering along the sandy path behind your tent on its way to the water.

The Selous is quite unlike the grassy plains of the northern parks such as the Serengeti. Instead, you’ll find yourself surrounded by swamps, palm trees and of course the rivers and lakes which breathe life into this vast reserve. These diverse habitats are part of what makes a safari in Selous so rewarding; by traversing ever-changing landscapes on your explorations you are always encountering different flora and fauna along the way. As well as the traditional safari species including elephant, buffalo, hippo, lion and leopard, the Selous is home to one of the the largest populations of wild dog (also known as African hunting dog) on the planet. These canines are some of the most impressive predators in Africa, using their stamina to outrun their prey, travelling tremendous distances in the process. To see a pack of wild dog on your safari is truly unforgettable, whether this is your first safari or your hundredth. Birders won’t be disappointed here either, with more than 400 species recorded and a good number of the highly sought-after Pel’s fishing owl.
