Sheltered in a grove of palms on the shores of Lake Nzerakera, part of the watery byways of the Rufiji River system, Siwandu is perfectly situated to fully experience the breathtaking landscape and abundant wildlife of Selous Game Reserve. The Reserve is the largest in Africa, spanning 55,000km² and is four times larger than the Serengeti. Inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Selous’ riverine wilderness and diverse habitat creates the perfect environment for a wealth of animals of all shapes and sizes as well as support an extraordinary array of different vegetation types. Due to the local topography around Siwandu, our location is considered the undisputed prime position for superlative game viewing. The spacious octagonal tents of canvas and secure mosquito netting and topped in thatch, not only allows for constant air-flow, but also enables guests to gaze upon the animals as they saunter past on the same day. Observe them while reclining on the majestic king sized bed under the overhead fan or from the open-air stargazer, solar-heated showers which adjoin the en suite bathrooms. Siwandu is evenly divided into two more intimately sized camps; North Camp and South Camp. Each camp has its own lounge, well stocked bar and dining area, and each has its own kitchen where our chefs produce fine cuisine. All meals are complimented by a good wine selection. No movement between camps is required as each has its own host, guides, swimming pool, game vehicles and jetty for boat safaris.
