Fodor's Review

This camp—the oldest in the reserve—has a great location on a wide bend on the Rufiji at the end of the eastern sector of the reserve. You'll stay in comfortable en-suite tents spread out along the river, all with private verandahs and sitting rooms, some with private plunge pools. Depending on the length of your stay you can choose any or all of the activities on offer including game drives, walking safaris, boat safaris, and overnight fly-camping.
