Siwandu Camp is a peaceful camp located in an open palm forest next to the large Lake Nzerakera, which joins the Great Rufiji River. Situated in the northern part of the Selous Game Reserve, the camp blends in with the natural environment, also known as one of the most exciting areas of the reserve.
A five minute drive from Siwandu airstrip, which is just a 45 minute flight away from Dar es Salaam, the camp is easily accessible but with that faraway feel.
Enjoy spacious octagonal safari tents, thoughtfully positioned in an arrangement by the lake to ensure maximum privacy, along with wonderful views. The reserve is the largest in Africa, four times larger than the Serengeti.
There is a wealth of animals here, which makes for excellent game viewing, including fantastic opportunities to spot African Wild Dogs, thanks to the reserve being home to largest population of wild dogs in the world.
Siwandu Camp offers a range of activities to guests. Game drives are done in open jeep vehicles, ensuring that you get great views and a personable experience. Game walks at dawn are a fantastic opportunity to connect to nature, are slow paced, and look at larger and smaller animals species as well as flora and fauna.
Fabulous boating cruises take you down the Rufiji River delta in the wet season, which is the largest of its kind in East Africa. For the rest of the year, guests cruise down Lake Nzerakera.
You can even enjoy a sun downer or dine in style while on the boat, which is particularly special when animals come to drink at the water’s edge.
