Selous Wilderness Camp


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

Although there is quite a cluster of camps outside the eastern Mtemere Gate of the Selous Game Reserve, this camp is the only one on the south bank of the river and therefore feels a good deal more remote.

It is also by far the best constructed lodge, as good as any inside the reserve. That said, when we last visited in June 2011 the camp was not in a great state of repair, as you can see from the images, but we have been assured that everything would be up to scratch by the time the season got under way.

That aside, the main downside is being located outside the reserve and having to repeatedly enter the park via Mtemere Gate to go on safari, although the camp does offer motorboat and walking safari outside the reserve.

Selous Wilderness Camp is somewhere we tend to only recommend when the better camps inside the reserve are full.
