Fodor's Expert Review Beho Beho

Selous Game Reserve, Lindi, Tanzania Fodor's Choice

Many safari aficionados consider Beho Beho to be one of the best accommodations in East Africa. The ultraluxurious lodge has superb views over the floodplains, fine dining, and impeccable service. The hand-built cobblestone-and-thatch chalets have private en suite bathrooms with unique views, an elegant dressing room decorated with African artifacts, and an indoor sunken verandah with a day couch and a balcony that overlooks the wide floodplains and a plunge pool. Although not on the river, a pool in front of the camp lets you gaze out over the wilderness to spot buffalo, hippo, and other game. At the hot sulfur springs of Maji Moto, you can swim in deep natural pools. If you stay more than four nights, seize the opportunity to stay in the wonderful tree house perched in the branches of an ancient leadwood tree, with a star bed and bathroom.
