2.Roho Ya Selous Luxury Camp
On a hill overlooking a vital waterway, Roho ya Selous is perfectly positioned for exploration. This Tanzania Luxury Accommodation in Nyerere NP has eight rooms perfectly suited as a retreat after a day on safari.
Roho ya Selous is in the heart of Nyerere National Park (formerly Selous Game Reserve).It is also the largest reserve in Africa and home to one of the biggest populations of wild dogs on the continent. Roho ya Selous sit close to the Rufiji River, a key waterway which links Lake Manze to Lake Nzerakera. This is right in the heart of the Selous Game Reserve. This pristine region is also sparse on safari camps, but abundant in wildlife. The reserve’s denizens include leopard, wild dog, lion, and some 400 species of birds, and Roho ya Selous places you in their well-traveled path.
Larger than the country of Switzerland and encompassing 30,000 square miles, Selous Game Reserve is indeed a safari playground. As for camp, it includes eight comfortable stretch-canvas tents, one designed specifically for families. Keeping in line with the sensibilities and luxuries of the Asilia family of tented camps, each abode has comfortable and functional amenities. En suite bathrooms include flushing toilets and hot running water ever at the ready. An over-bed “Evening Breeze” cooling system comes standard, making the warmer seasons effortlessly bearable in the retreat of your private tent.
From its hillside location overlooking the water, guests have a variety of options for exploring the area. The waterways surrounding Roho ya Selous offer a chance to explore too. Your guides can also escort you on boating and catch-and-release fishing excursions on Lake Nzerakera and the Rufiji River. Embark on game drives and walking safaris with the skilled guides who will reveal just a sliver of Africa’s largest protected reserve. With such a vast and under populated area to traverse, each day at this camp promises to be completely different from the next.
Beho Beho is certainly a Luxury Accommodation in Nyerere NP that is in the top three in East Africa if not Africa at the moment…they have been leading the way for the last few years in the Selous. Great location, up in the Beho Beho hills, away from the relative “traffic” in the park’s centre. Great game viewing, with lion prides to the east and west and elephant wandering through the small valley below. Excellent service, also something that they pride themselves on.
Superlatives really tend to fail us when talking about Beho Beho. Where other camps in the park score highly in certain aspects (such as game viewing, or service, or location), Beho Beho manages to tick all of the boxes. The guiding and game around the camp will satisfy even the most ardent of safari-philes. The rooms and communal areas will definitely tick the boxes of those looking for understated luxury. Finally, the food and service will content even the most fussy of eaters or hard to please!
Originally used as a hunting camp (a long time ago), Beho Beho, today, has the feel of a camp that has been in its location for years. The river stone that they have used to construct the sumptuous rooms and main buildings blends perfectly with the bush surroundings
It is true that the price tag is higher than other camps in the park but, for your once in a lifetime trip, we would argue. Those why not spend a little more and make it something that you will aspire to for the rest of your life, rather than something memorable!

What we love about Kiba Point Selous
- Ask your guide to take you fishing in the nearby river and get the chef to prepare your catch for dinner.
- When at a wildlife sighting, hop down from the game vehicle at your guide’s instruction and quietly work your way into a good position on foot.
