Selous River Camp


... is located in the Selous Game Reserve in Southern Tanzania.

These days there is a host of lodges clustered outside the eastern Mtemere Gate of Selous Game Reserve. This camp is one of the better ones, although that is not necessarily saying a great deal.

Set on the banks of the Rufiji just outside the reserve boundary, this simple camp comprises pleasant sand-floored restaurant and bar areas above the river, with several simple rooms lining the bank downstream. All quite rudimentary, but lifted by the presence of the very friendly and animated British owners.

Various walks are offered around the village and forests, as well as boat safari on the river outside the reserve. For vehicle safari you need to pass back and forth through the main gate each time.

There is no doubt that staying at Selous River Camp does represent a considerable compromise compared with the camps inside the reserve, but it is a usable option if budget or availability dictate.
