Siwandu reigns supreme in our opinion. It has a fantastic location, great guides and gorgeous tents offering every luxury in a truly authentic style.  Discreetly tucked amongst the palm trees on the banks of Lake Nzerakera, it has everything you could want in a safari holiday and is definitely our number one tented camp in the Selous.
 

Siwandu - The Facts 

 
Siwandu Camp (formerly known as the Selous Safari Camp) is situated in its own secluded little part of the Siwandu area of the game reserve.  It’s about a 45 minute flight from Dar es Salaam, right in the middle of a network of lakes and rivers that give it a huge diversity of wildlife.
 
The camp itself is split into two separate parts, offering even more privacy for its guests; it also gives a group the opportunity to take a whole side.  The tents are all placed along the banks of the river giving them tremendous views of the animals coming to drink, especially the elephants that are frequent visitors to the area (mostly around supper time!).  The tents are large and spacious with an elegant design that takes you back to the safari days of old.  Everything about them is supremely comfortable and makes for an incredible stay. The most authentic Tanzanian honeymoon in the region.
 
Many of the guides have spent years in the Selous Game Reserve and know it like the back of their hand.  They really are impressive be it on the water, on land or setting up your tent under the stars.
 
Over all our years in Tanzania safari we’ve never heard a bad word about Siwandu and our own experiences there have all been amazing.

Standards of guiding and wildlife expertise are hard to beat with many of the guides having spent all their years in the Siwandu.  Taking the opportunity to fly-camp under the stars with the experts is extremely worthwhile.  Typical days involve a morning and an afternoon game activity; on foot, by boat, or from an open sided vehicle, and for the anglers among you, a spot of fishing.  Not to mention that the twenty minute drive from the airstrip to the camp seems to always muster an exciting introduction!  As soon as you set down in the Selous the adventure begins...

Loved this one too. The “tents” were beautiful, the whole camp was very luxurious and the staff were brilliant and really make the place special. They also gave us lots of honeymoon treats like lunch on the lake one day and a candlelit dinner by the pool on the last night which was lovely. Our guide was great too, so so knowledgeable and showed us so much big and little stuff!
