Siwandu Camp’s history of withstanding floods, tornadoes and other natural phenomena echoes the enduring nature of the African landscape. Situated in Selous Game Reserve, the largest in Africa at 55,000km² and a UNESCO World Heritage Site to boot, the camp’s existence on the shores of Lake Nzerakera in Tanzania is sure to attract the most ardent of nature and safari-lovers.
The game reserve is home to 120,000 buffalo, 40,000 hippos, approximately 4,000 lion, and more than half of the country’s elephant population. To top it off, bird and botany enthusiasts will be floored by the 400 bird species and 2,100 plant species found on this broad stretch of land. It will come as no surprise that game-viewing is available from Siwandu Camp.
The camp is divided into two smaller camps to give visitors a more intimate experience. Each has its own entertainment, bar and dining area. Both camps are equipped with guides, swimming pools, vehicles, jetty boats, and hosts. Guests will spend the night in their spacious tents, observing the wildlife as they lumber past, or gazing at the night sky from their open-air shower.
