Beho Beho, Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania
A Luxury Tented Camp in Tanzania
Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania
Per Person Per Night
Beho Beho is known as ‘wansalishi’ which means, when translated from the Swahili, ‘the pioneer’. The first camp in the northern sector of the Selous Game Reserve, its stone cottages, perched on Kipalala Hill, offer panoramic views over the Rufiji river flood plain. 145 miles south west of Dar es Salaam, as the crow flies, the camp is 3 miles from the grave of Frederick Courteney Selous. Always designated as a ‘private camp’ it has fiercely protected its individuality and privileged location as one of the most ‘magical’ places it is possible to visit in safari Africa.
Furnished in the style of a private house, with comfortable seating and dining areas, the most noticeable thing is that there are few walls. Shaded and protected by a huge palm thatched roof there is also a full sized billiards table, a study with personal computer, the Eagle’s Nest, a Lookout banda and the Parade Ground for communal meals. Meals are a moveable feast and are not confined to the formal dining areas and a feature of the camp is that each meal is taken at a different venue. It is not part of the Beho Beho ethos to serve private meals other than to guests staying in Baileys Banda. Breakfast is usually taken in the bush.
WHY CHOOSE BEHO BEHO?
- Beho Beho is an ideal location for small residential conferences, seminars and presentations
- The bandas have been designed as a comfortable home away from home for intrepid travellers and to be planned as a sophisticated haven where guests can relax in privacy in order to enjoy the ‘holiday’ part of their safari.
- Treehouse is a wonderful experience that will certainly enhance your safari and give you an even greater fund of stories to take home.
Our Thoughts on Beho Beho
Review by Nandini R
Beho was really beautiful!
They have a location advantage that very few lodges enjoy. Quite remote and not crowded most of the time. They have a great walking path…600 metres up and down. My husband really enjoyed his walks!
The staff were extremely professional, helpful, polite and had no expectations. Since they are not a chain their service was very personalized service. Their lady host was always ready to help.
Of course, December was very hot. For better weather and fewer people, we were recommended to visit between early July and November. Despite the heat, animal sightings were very good. Resident elephant….nice walks inside the bush… food in abundance hot breakfasts, buffet lunches, set menu dinner. Of course, their Indian food wasn’t as good as Asilia’s. Their African meals were excellent. Alcohol – very good selection
They are very flexible with their vehicle and ride timings. They insisted we eat lunch a huge spread before departure. Their guides were very efficient. Guides rotate so no one guide is attached to a guest. Even the camp manager guides.
Finally, communal dining. This time it was okay since we had only one other American couple. Two camp staff always ate with us.
Certainly, very exciting!!!
We were warned and beautifully maneuvered.
