About
Description
Imagine the silence and a powerful untamed nature… untouched forest, and crocodile filled lakes. On the river, a small canoe gently rows through the king palm trees. Nature awakes. In the first light of dawn, the More golden elephants approach the river to drink. A group of still impalas watching us move between the hippopotamuses and crocodiles are disturbed by our passage.The largest African reserve is crossed by the Rufiji River and its tributaries which forms a network of lakes ideal for boat safaris.Wildlife observation and bird watching (350 catalogued species) take place in a superb natural setting. Respecting nature’s rhythm, you can be assured of close contact with the wildlife. With elephant population of over 50,000 and more than 5000 leopards, the Selous has undoubtedly the most rewarding game to offer. Other rare species include the African hunting dog. The Reserve provides home for some of the last remaining black rhinos.Selous Riverside Safari Camp, located just 6 km east from the Mtemere Gate that gives access to the magnificent Selous Game Reserve, is a cozy and exclusive 10 tents´ camp with breathtaking views over the Rufiji River. Hidden amongst dense forest and on the banks of the Rufiji River, Selous Riverside Safari Camp provides the most breathtaking view as dawn arises and a whole new adventure is about to begin.Lavishly furnished, the Camp provides comfort, style but also a feel of arguably the most untouched bush anywhere on the African horizon. Attention has been paid to every detail to make sure you experience the true essence of an adventures safari of a lifetime. A personal and friendly service is part of our culture and we aim to provide you with every comfort during your stay at Selous Riverside Safari Camp.To the 10 spacious luxury tents, decorated beautifully in African style, a new state-of-the-art honeymoon tent has been recently added, with stunning river-front location and view, as the other tents.
