Situated in the cool highlands of Selous Game Reserve, Beho Beho feels like a home away from home set in the picturesque wilderness.
Accommodations consist of eight individual stone and palm-leaf thatched cottages that are scattered across the property with four on each side of the main house. Each banda comprises a spacious and airy bedroom with a king-sized bed and a sitting area with plush chairs and Zanzibari day bed. The main suite has an open front, but at night a curtain with gauze windows can be drawn across and fastened for added privacy. The suites also come with a separate dressing room and large en suite bathroom with a twin vanity, flush toilet, and open-air shower. At the front of the banda lies a shaded veranda. The rooms even feature a tripod mounted telescope for spotting game.
The camp is located in Selous Game Reserve. Encompassing an area of over 21,000 square miles, not counting additional buffer zones, Selous is about three times the size of South Africa’s Kruger National Park and twice the size of Serengeti National Park. Its rivers and lakes sustain phenomenal wildlife concentrations, including Africa’s largest populations of elephant and wild dog. Along the Rufiji River and beyond, an astonishing number of animal and bird species can be found including waterbuck, reedbuck, bushbuck, crocodile, hippo, and black and white colobus monkeys. Sandbanks are crowded with huge crocodiles, exposed mud banks are shaded under red clouds of carmine bee-eaters, and swampy islands are visited by wandering elephants.
