Nestled on the shores of Lake Nzerakera, Siwandu is a comfortable and elegant safari camp in the wildlife-rich Selous Game Reserve.
Accommodations at the camp consist of ten spacious octagonal tents scattered around the camp for maximum privacy. Each tent made of canvas and mosquito netting with a thatched roof allows for natural cooling and boasts panoramic views, so guests can marvel at the animals wandering past from the comfort of their king-sized bed. The en suite bathrooms feature an indoor shower as well as a romantic stargazer shower heated by solar-power. The tent’s wooden deck veranda is the ideal place to relax and admire the beauties of nature.
The camp is located on the banks of Lake Nzerakera, part of the watery byways of the Rufiji River system 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, 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.
