Selous Riverside Safari 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 the 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 around 5km from the gate, the lodge not only looks across the river at fields rather than bush, but also has the village in between it and the park entrance, where a little bit of cultural interaction may be possible.

The main building is relatively substantial, with a modest pool and small bar on a terrace over the river. Guest tents are arranged either side of the main area and all are raised up on decks and are very large with en suite facilities and with solar electricity 24 hrs a day. Deluxe tents all have large private pools on the deck.

Selous Riverside Safari Camp represents a considerable compromise in terms of location compared with the camps inside the reserve, but facilities and service levels are to good levels, making it a usable option if budget or availability dictate.
