Review

Located over to the eastern edge of the main game viewing area, Selous Impala Camp is still privately owned and, especially in low season when it drops its rates and offers a 4th night for free, offers very good value for money. Impala has definitely grown to be one of our favourite properties over the last few years and, with the owner lead attention to detail, great guiding and accommodation, it is certainly our pick of the mid-priced properties in the park.

Location

Set to the east of the famed Siwandu region of the park, Impala is located on the outer edge of a bend in the Rufiji River which affords it sweeping views up and down the river. On the whole the game viewing in this area is very reliable and, being set slightly away from the main game viewing area allows it to feel a little more secluded than properties like Siwandu and Manze.

Layout

As with all of the properties in the Selous, Selous Impala Camp has made the most of its location along the banks of the Rufiji River with all of the 8 tents featuring views out across the river and seclusion from those around. With a good sized swimming pool and a great dining area and bar looking out over the river, it is a good way to send a few nights in the bush!

 

Rooms

The large tents that are used for the property have plenty of room inside and are set on their own decking, each with a verandah and views out over the Rufiji River. While these are standard canvas tents, they are well ventilated and have ensuite facilities that keep them cool and comfortable.

Activities

Selous Impala Camp is definitely one of the better properties for those that are wanting to concentrate on their safari experience with very experienced guides for walking, boating and game driving activities…all of which can be chosen on a daily basis if preferred.

great location for game viewing, stunning views from camp and facilities, excellent for families

not necessarily the best value in the main season but a steal in the fringe seasons
