Located in the east of Selous Game Reserve and overlooking the Rufiji River, Impala Camp is one of the smaller properties found in the reserve, with only 8 safari tents available. The camp blends well with its wild surroundings, sheltered by Tamarind trees and Borassus palms. During the rainy season the two lakes the camp lies between, Siwandu and Mzizimia, become a hotspot for wildlife.
The camp is rustic but this adds a simple charm to the property's style. Set high on wooden platforms, the tents are comfortable tented accommodation and provide views of the lagoon and river. The netted windows have roll down blinds made of canvas, while the tent doors are double zipped with one layer gauze and the other canvas. To stay cool from the heat of the day there is a floor fan.
Adjacent to the main bedroom lies a dressing room comprising open wardrobe and canvas shelves, behind which guests can find the bathroom, which hold a flush toilet and shower that provides both hot and cold water. Power is supplied by generators, when they are switched off electricity is provided by battery inverters. The camp provides guests with a well-stocked bar, comfortable lounge, pool and delicious cuisine.
1 hour drive from Mtemere Airstrip following an approximately 40 minute flight from Dar es Salaam.
Game drives, boat safaris, walking safaris and fishing.
