Selous Luxury Camp


... also known as Selous Serena Camp, is located in the Selous Game Reserve in Southern Tanzania.

This medium quality permanent lodge is in an unusually remote location in Selous, an extremely large and important game reserve with an unusual languid atmosphere. It is a comfortable camp, alongside a small stream, with a decent swimming pool and twelve guest rooms offering high levels of conventional comforts. It is also relatively low cost. Vehicle traffic in this particular area is very low. Activities include vehicle safari and walking safari. Wildlife viewing is particularly strong during the Jun/Nov dry season, whilst the reserve remains a beautiful place to visit during the converse Dec/Mar green season.

The main potential downsides are that this is a less than obvious location, away from the main river and a really long way from the main wildlife areas, making for some very long and potentially tiresome and repetitive drives. The lodge situation and design is relatively unattractive and the guest mix tends to be a little bit mainstream. Guests are often asked to share safari vehicles, there can be significant vehicle clustering on sightings in this core area and the safari guiding can be quite average.
