The Selous Safari Camp
Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania - Classic 4
Located in the northeastern sector of the Selous Game Reserve, The Selous Safari Camp is close to the grave of Frederick Selous, the naturalist, big game hunter and explorer, after whom the Reserve was named. Rainfall is more reliable here than in many other areas of Africa, and the large animals of the Selous have no need to migrate in the dry seasons. Elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, wild dog and antelope, among others, are all to be found here together with a spectacular variety of birds.
Selous Safari Camp lies on the edge of Lake Nzerekera. This area is highly populated with game and viewing from one's tent is often spectacular. The tents are raised, on wooden platforms, and look out over Lake Nzerekera. Located for maximum privacy they all have generous viewing decks on which to relax and take your ease. The dining room, lounge and bar are mounted on a high platform, giving spectacular views across the Lake. In the evening a small bonfire is lit on the lakeside for clients to sit around for their sundowner and to listen to and relate the excitements of the day. In the evenings a three course, silver service dinner is served and the delicious breakfasts feature lovely platters of fruits and freshly baked breads.
Almost everyone comes here for the game and viewing from the four-wheel drive vehicles is excellent. In the afternoon, when it is hot, you may just lie around the pool. Boat trips in the aluminum boats will bring you as close as you dare to hippo and crocodile. However, at The Selous Safari Camp you need not necessarily leave your tent for a real African wildlife experience - the animals will often come close to you
