Located in the Selous Game Reserve on the shores of Lake Nzerakera, Siwandu is one of the best camps in the park with luxurious tents, excellent service and top class guiding. Accommodation comes in the form of luxury tents, which boast en-suite bathrooms and ceiling fans. South Camp possesses 7 tents, while North Camp holds 6. This is great for controlling the level of intimacy felt in camp in relation to the size of guest numbers, with the camp able to be compressed with few visitors present.

Each section of the camp includes its own dining area, bar and swimming pool. Delicious wines and cuisine are prepared by the camp chefs. Guests have everything they need at each fully stocked camp, with a jetty for boat safaris and game viewing vehicles on hand.

Aside from a curio shop present in South Camp, the two sections are very much the same, with accommodation practically identical. The octagonal tents are sheltered under thatched roofs and raised off the ground, each possessing a veranda from which to look out upon the lake. The comfortable tent interior is the perfect place to relax after a hard day on safari.

Review of Siwandu

Alex & Eva

The Selous Safari Camp was the first place we stayed on our honeymoon, and was an amazing start to the experience! The camp is very well-designed, with spacious tented rooms with a thatched roof built on raised wooden decking. The beds are huge and very comfortable, the bathroom area is huge and the outdoor shower is great! The tented accommodation really allows you to experience the wildlife at all hours…
