We went on our second Tanzanian Safari in August, but our first to the southern parks. We spent the first half of this visit on part of the northern safari circuit, then drove south in the land cruiser with a new guide for the southern parks. Selous Game Reserve was the main reason we decided to visit the “south,” and we spent the last three nights of our safari at Rufiji River Camp. Having just stayed at Ruaha River Lodge and Vuma Hills Camp, both Fox properties, we had high expectations for Rufiji River Camp. We were warmly greeted on arrival, with fresh juice as is the custom. After checkin and introductions, we were escorted to our spacious tent overlooking the Rufiji River. The “tent” was on a platform, with a large deck and multiple sitting areas, and two “doors”- one the

Having returned with a Sundance Spirit group of 28 where we took Rufiji River Camp exclusively it is worthy of stating that every single one of our guests lofty expectations were by far & away exceeded - this is a safari camp which has perfect location, large spacious guest canvas tented accommodation, each with a private (solid wall) bathroom, huge shower area, flush loo, double his n hers basins, ample piping hot water & the particular one we were allocated had its own plunge pool. Rufiji during our stay was managed by a young lady names Stephie, who was vastly more savvy & worldly wise than her tender age; she will go far up the ladder in the safari profession as she is delightfully hospitable, attentive, proactive, swift to act of guest requests & seemingly was always a

Staff were very good and helpful, and knowledgeable when on the safari The jeeps were the best and very comfortable. The experience was out of this world. Been on other safaris but would say this one was the most memorable. Would recommend to friends and family.

Our first safari and not knowing what to expect we were told about the Rufiji Rover Camp and how personal and friendly the set up and staff were. We arrived by plane from Dar es Salaam on a 30min flight and met at the runway by our Guide, Hassan. We arrived to a warm welcome at reception, checked in and were taken to our accommodation which looked out over the Rufiji river. Amazing views. The team had arranged a safari drive before lunch for us and this was just the perfect start to an amazing experience. Food is good as three meals a day are nutritional and tasty and should cater for most tastes. Surroundings are very picturesque and being in the wild with the noises of animals in so close is an experience we will never forgot. In the camp we were visited by several animal

We spent 4 days here in August and had an amazing time. Having never been on safari before, we didn't know what to expect. The location is beautiful. We had a family suite, 2 tents joined by decking and a plunge pool. The accommodation is comfortable and spacious. The staff were lovely and the food was always good and plentiful. Our guide, Wasiri, was really knowledgable and made the holiday extra special. We had some amazing game viewing and he was a massive hit with all 3 children. Thank you!
