Siwandu (previously known as Selous Safari Camp) is situated within an open palm forest on the shores of Lake Nzerakera, a massive lake adjoining the Great Rufiji River. The camp has a prime position at the centre of this unique riverine and lake complex, with the highest concentration of African wildlife and myriad birdlife.
The camp as a whole is comprised of two separate camps, North and South. North camp has 6 tents and South camp has 7 tents. The spacious tents are luxuriously appointed, with en suite bathrooms and open air hot water showers. Ceiling fans are present in all the rooms situated above king-size beds.
Siwandu offers a large selection of activities to choose from be it by boat, vehicle or foot. Experienced guides personally tailor all activities to suit guests so that you get the most out of the Reserve in the time available.
For drives there are open 4x4 vehicles, specially adapted for close-up game viewing, which make for exhilarating early morning and evening drives into the surrounding bush. The boat safaris are conducted in sturdy metal boats with a powerful outboard motor on the back and a covered canopy. Another unique opportunity the Selous has to offer is the possibility of doing a walking safari through the bush. These guided walks are the only activity which leaves very early due to the need to avoid the sun and the heat of midday. Walks leave at 06h30 accompanied with a watchman and a fully qualified armed guide.
