Selous Safari Camp operates an authentic and elegant permanent tented camp tucked among the palm trees on the banks of the Rufiji River. This is without doubt the best tented accommodation in the Selous

The camp is spacious and stylishly designed for an atmospheric stay, with a shady swimming pool to complete its appeal. A richly furnished dining room and bar are raised high on stilts substantial enough to withstand the onslaught of elephant perusals during candlelit suppers, and the billowing sleeping tents each have their own private veranda and are colourfully bright and airy.

The atmosphere at Selous Safari Camp is relaxed and yet wonderfully comfortable, with good attention to detail; the camp staff give guests a real sense of being looked after, and provide an inspired gourmet menu that belies the rural bush location, even on intrepid fly-camping expeditions. Standards of guiding and wildlife expertise are hard to beat with many of the guides having spent all their years in the Selous Game Reserve.
