Selous Impala Camp

Pros

  • You rarely see any other vehicles on game drives
  • The staff are very knowledgeable
  • Overall a fantastic camp

Cons

  • As there are fewer game vehicles in the area, animal sightings are not as prolific as in the north
  • There may be a "late departure" extra day's park or reserve entry fees charged $50 pp if you arrive in the morning and depart in the afternoon

Fodor's Review

This attractive small camp on Lake Mzizimia's shores nestles among borassus palms and riverine bush with great views over the Rufiji. Tents on wooden platforms raised on stilts, each with its own en-suite bathroom and private veranda, have comfortable African-theme soft furnishings and rustic handmade wooden furniture. Join other guests in the main thatch lounge, which is also raised on a platform with views of the river, for meals and sundowners. If you're here in the dry season between June and October, you'll see plains game galore as the animals come to drink at the perennial river. As well as elephant, buffalo, hippo, antelope of all kinds, and the always lying-in-wait crocodiles, there's a good chance of spotting lion and wild dog.Go for a guided game walk with an armed ranger, a game drive, or a boat safari; visit Stiegler's Gorge or the Maja Moto hot springs; or just chill out at this comfortable and unpretentious camp. There are some very good deals available if you fly in with Coastal Aviation, which operates the camp.
