Siwandu (formerly Selous Safari Camp) is delightfully situated within an open palm forest on the shores of Lake Nzerakera, a massive lake adjoining the Great Rufiji River. Blending in superbly with its natural surroundings in what is one of the most photogenic areas of the Selous Game Reserve.
All safari tents at Siwandu are widely spaced along the lake shore ensuring maximum privacy and wonderful views. Each tent sits atop its own raised timber platform with two large verandahs on either side where one can sit with a cup of tea in the morning watching the bush come to life at sunrise, or nursing a gin and tonic as the bush gets ready for the night at sunset.
The spacious tents are luxuriously appointed, with en suite bathrooms and open air hot water showers. Ceiling fans are present in all the rooms situated above the king sizes beds where guests can rest away the exertions of the morning activity and cool down during the heat of the day before heading out again later.
Siwandu as a whole is comprised of two separate camps, North and South. North camp possessing 6 tents and South camp with 7 tents. Each section has its own swimming pool, well stocked bar and dining area, and each has its own well supplied kitchen where our chefs produce the finest cuisine. All meals are complimented by a good wine selection.
Siwandu (formerly Selous Safari Camp) offers an exceptionally large array of activities to choose from be it by boat, vehicle or foot, your guides will personally taylor all activities to suit the guest so that they get the most out of the Reserve in the time they have available.
