Selous Safari Camp
Selous Safari Camp is situated within an open palm forest on the shores of Lake Nzerakera, adjoining the Great Rufiji River in Selous National Park. Selous Safari Camp comprises of two seperate camps, North (6 tents) and South (7 tents), each with its own swimming pool, bar, dining area and kitchen (from where chefs produce the finest cuisine). Each camps also has its own host, game viewing vehicles, jetty for boat safaris and walking guides. All tents, with en suite bathrooms and open air hot water showers, are spaced along the lake shore, each atop a raised timber platform with two large verandahs. There are no fences and no artificial modifications so animals wander freely through the camp. Hippos are a nightly occurence while elephants frequently meander between the tents. The African sound of whooping Hyenas and bellowing Hippos is constant background medley. Game viewing activites are by boat, vehicle or foot. Game drives are open 4WD vehicles specially adapted for close-up game viewing. Boat safaris are in sturdy metal boats with a powerful outboard motor and a covered canopy. Each boat safari is guided by a boatman who knows all the little nooks and crannies. Guided walks pace is not fast, concentrating more on ecology, tracking, dung identification, medicinal uses of trees, birds and generally interpreting the bush giving guests a much greater, broader understanding of nature.
