Review

The first of the camps catering to the top end of the market, Siwandu Camp (formerly Selous Safari Camp) offers great value for money and is ideal for those that want this level of luxury and service but without the price tag. Comparatively, it arguably doesn't live up to the safari standards of somewhere like Beho Beho, or the visual beauty of Sand Rivers, but this is definitely in the running!

Set just back from the banks of the Rufiji, Siwandu Camp is a luxury tented camp that offers great value for money and is definitely the real deal as far as the game and overall experience is concerned. The area that it is in, the Siwandu region, is known for its good game and, in particular, leopard sightings. On top of this, they have access to a good section of the Rufiji, which allows clients the opportunity to go out onto the river to have a look at hippo and elephant.

Made up of the Siwandu main camp (9 tents) and Siwandu Private Camp (with a further 4) there are quite a few options on offer in the Siwandu Camp. The tents themselves are vast and feature flush loos and brass fittings throughout and, with their design being such that, once you are inside it is all enclosed, it means that you don't have to worry about the midnight dash!

The main areas are similarly well thought out with the main restaurant and lounge areas being up on stilts, allowing for great views out to the River and beyond. Combined with a friendly group of staff and good guides from the area, Siwandu Camp is certainly one of the top 3 in the park at the moment.
