Rufiji River Camp 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 one of 14 spacious and comfortable en-suite tents spread out along the river, all with private verandahs and sitting rooms (three are suites with two tents and a private pool). 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. Game is prolific, you won't have to leave camp to see elephants, buffalo, hippo, and all sorts of other game, including a good chance of seeing wild dogs. Sit out on the sunset deck and wait for Africa's wildlife to come to you.
