You want a spectacular, once-in-a-lifetime experience yet of a good value during your Tanzania vacation, then Selous Riverside Safari Camp is one of the places to let it unfold. Imagine the feeling of sitting on the private deck of your tent, nestled within the trees. Before you is a blue-gray river that curves along the lush green landscape. Overhead, the African sun paints the sky in glorious warm tones of gold, red and orange. Located in southern Tanzania near the Selous Game Reserve, Selous Riverside Safari Camp is designed to give you exactly this experience during your holidays in Africa. The camp is set among the dense forest along the Rufiji River, and you enjoy all of the homely comforts that make your visit as contented as it is exciting. Traveling to the camp takes you along a rural, tree-lined road that also gives you the opportunity to see a local village. Once at the camp, the staff extends a friendly and warm riverside welcome to AfricanMecca guests, complete with refreshments and moist towels. With over 350 species of avi-fauna, thousands of lion, tens of thousands of elephant and many other types of wildlife, your stay at Selous Riverside Safari Camp during your photographic safari tour of Africa will be memorable and incredibly exciting. You may even see the rare and endangered black rhino and African wild dogs.

Accommodation At Selous Riverside Safari Camp

As you plan your travel to Africa, know that Selous Riverside Safari Camp offers you personal and friendly service in a traditional tented camp (read more on where else to stay in Selous on your Tanzanian safari). Elevated and thatched with a secondary roof, the tents provide a great view and extra in-tent coolness. With only 10 canvas tents, AfricanMecca guests will have the privacy needed to immerse themselves in the solitude and beauty of the wilderness surroundings. The small number of guests also means that wildlife are less likely to be skittish around the camp grounds so you can watch as the animals come to the river to drink. The rug and curtain decor of your tent envelops you in Swahili culture, and each tent includes modern conveniences, such as a shower, basin, flush toilet, hot and cold running water, electricity and much more. All of the common areas and guest tents offer incredible views of the river. In the morning, sip on a cup of the finest Tanzanian coffee while watching elephant walk to the river where they drink, bathe and play in the water. Late in the afternoon, refresh from a long day of game viewing on the poolside sun deck that extends to the river. As the sun sets, join other guests in the lounge to share your Tanzania wildlife safari experiences and plan the next day's activities. For your comfort and safety, the tents at Selous Riverside Safari Camp have mosquito nets for use at night.

Safari At Selous Riverside Safari Camp

At the heart of your Selous Riverside Safari Camp safari is the wildlife viewing experiences. The camp offers game drives, boat safaris and walking safaris. You may also learn more about the local peoples through cultural activities. Seasonal fishing is offered, and you may arrange this activity after you arrive at the camp subject to availability. Game drives, the most popular activity on an AfricanMecca vacation itinerary, takes you to the vast expanse of the Selous Game Reserve, the largest game reserve in Africa and the second largest in the world. Over 800,000 animals roam freely across 21,000 square miles (55,000 sq km) of diverse landscape (view map of the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania), such as open savannah, acacia woodlands, dense forest, lakes, rivers and much more. Game drives are offered in the morning or afternoon, and can be combined with other activities, such as boat safaris and walking safaris, to give you an unparalleled experience during your safari in Africa. Your Tanzania dreams of an African safari begin to unfold as you travel with your professional guide who has an intimate knowledge of the ecology and wildlife behaviors found within the game reserve. Your guide may also use radio communication with other trusted guides to trade up-to-date information about the animals to give you a truly exceptional experience in the Selous Game Reserve. During your game drive tour of Tanzania, you may see the peaceful and highly social elephant watch over their young calves, sensing the danger of nearby predators, such as lion, hyena, cheetah and many others. Other fauna found within the reserve include wildebeest, giraffe, impala, reedbuck and many others (read more on when is the best time to visit Selous for a southern Tanzania safari). The Rufiji River is home to hippos that thrive on the aquatic vegetation, crocodile that lurk on the shores and hundreds of species of birds – best seen during boating safaris in Selous.

Dining At Selous Riverside Safari Camp

Enjoy delicious African cuisine during your wilderness trip to Selous. Your meals are strikingly prepared with fresh, organic, locally-sourced ingredients. As you awaken to greet the day, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee or tea wafts into your tent – available on request. At the dining area, a variety of tasty cold and warm dishes await your selection, such as toast with jam and marmalade, cereals, fresh fruit, assorted cheeses, eggs, fresh bread, croissants, pancakes and much more. As your energy is depleted from the spectacular experience of Africa, lunch and dinner rejuvenate you with an array of options, such as meat, poultry, fish, soups, salads, vegetables, delightful desserts and much more. Vegetarian options are available for AfricanMecca visitors, and the kitchen staff can also prepare food to meet your special dietary needs. To accompany your meals, Selous Riverside Safari Camp offers a selection of coffee, tea, wine, beer, spirits, infusions, fresh juices and bottled water. Drinks are at an additional cost. Evenings in Africa are magical, and a perfect time to have a glass of cognac while watching the sun dips below the horizon.

These are either packed to take with you or prepared in a specially designed bush kitchen while you rest under the shade of an acacia tree among the wildlife.
