Siwandu Camp’s 25-year long history of withstanding floods, tornadoes and other natural phenomena echo the enduring nature of the African landscape. Situated in the Selous Game Reserve, which has bragging rights for being 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 are sure to attract the most ardent of nature and safari-lovers.
The game reserve is home to an impressive number of animals including 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 more than 400 species of bird and 2,100 species of plant that can be found on this broad stretch of land. It will come as no surprise that due to its prime location, unrivalled game viewing is available from Siwandu Camp.
The camp is divided evenly into two smaller camps in order to give visitors a more intimate experience. Each camp has its own entertainment, bar and dining area and a kitchen where chefs prepare food with added local flair. All needs are catered for as both camps are equipped with their own guides, swimming pools, vehicles, jetty boats and hosts. Guests will spend the night in their spacious tents, either observing the reserve’s inhabitants as they lumber past, or gazing at the night sky from their open air shower adjacent to the en-suite bathrooms. For those seeking the ultimate safari experience, a camp can be booked in its entirety to ensure the guests have a truly intimate stay in the heart of Africa.
