vernight at Rufiji River Camp on a full board basis plus shared activities. Selous

This must be the largest unspoilt game reserve in Africa. The reserve is named after the late Captain Frederick Courteney Selous, a famous elephant hunter who was killed by a German sniper in 1917. General accessibility to the 55,000 sq km reserve used to be difficult, however, there are now flights, a limited train service from Dar es Salaam and a convenient dirt road linking the park with other southern Tanzanian attractions. The reserve is immense, remote and wild and no human habitation is allowed within its boundaries, apart from within camps and lodges. Today it boasts some of Africa’s finest virgin bush, unchanged through centuries and inhabited by three quarters of a million wild animals. The river systems and gorges are fascinating, as are the swamps, woodlands and savannahs, all home to hippo, crocodile, elephant, buffalo, wildebeest, zebras, giraffe, waterbuck, baboon, leopards, lion, wild dog, eland, sable and roan, to mention just a few of the species. The bird-life is also extremely rich. There are a number of camps in the northern sector of the park, offering a mix of rustic and exotic accommodation. Game drives are by open four-wheel drive vehicle or by boat, a wonderfully peaceful way to view game. For a real highlight, choose a safari that offers escorted walking safaris.

Rufiji River Camp

Situated in the heart of this pristine nature reserve is the Rufiji River Camp, where guests stay in palm leafed comfortable tents that are simple, with verandas and en suite facilities and have views facing the river. The central building houses a restaurant, bar and library, all with a view of the river and the sunset. The camps dining room provides good international cuisine, while the bar offers guests a wide selection of wines and spirits. The camp tries hard to be eco-friendly. Electricity is guaranteed by solar but its use is deliberately limited to bathroom and tent illumination, some kitchen functions and the recharging of video batteries. The camp aims to offer guests a more intimate relationship with nature and experienced guides specialise in 4x4 safaris, walking safaris and explorations by boat along the river banks. The opportunities for fishing and bird watching is excellent.
