SIWANDU

Siwandu is situated within an open palm forest on the shores of Lake Nzerakera, a massive lake adjoining the Great Rufiji River, in one of the most photogenic areas of the Selous Game Reserve. There are no fences and no artificial modifications so animals can wander freely through the camp, and often do! Hippos moving through the camp are a nightly occurence and some of Selous elephant frequently meander between the tents looking for a late night snack. This is real Africa!

THE CAMP
The camp is comprised of two separate camps, North and South. North camp possessing 6 tents and South camp with 7 tents. Each section has its own swimming pool, bar and dining area, and each has its own kitchen where chefs produce surprisingly good cuisine. All meals are complimented by a good wine selection. No movement between camps is required as each has its own host, game viewing vehicles, jetty for boat safaris and walking guides. All safari tents are widely spaced along the lake shore ensuring privacy and wonderful views. Each tent sits atop its own raised timber platform with two large verandahs on either side where one can sit with a cup of tea in the morning watching the bush come to life at sunrise, or nursing a gin and tonic as the bush gets ready for the night at sunset.

ACTIVITIES
Siwandu offers a diverse range of activities to ensure guests take full advantage of having the African wilderness on their doorstep. Accompanied by expert guides, the shared game drives in customised 4x4 safari vehicles head out into the reserve daily in search of Africa's amazing wildlife. Game walks are also offered, and they are a wonderful way to get close to nature and to learn about some of the smaller species and ecosystems in the reserve as well as the flora and fauna (16 years & over). Or you will explore the sinuous waterways of the Rufiji River delta, the largest in East Africa, by boat. When the rains have fallen, cruises venture into the river but for the rest of the year Siwandu guests boat on Lake Nzerakera in sturdy metal boats with covered canopies, or the pontoon boat that allows guests the experience of dining or sipping a sundowner on the move, while watching animals come down to drink.
