"Great safari experience"

Romain, our guide was really great. He new where to find animals in the reserve, he made sure we get the best view. Romain also helped us to get SIM cards on our way to the reserve and was always helpful and knew everything we asked about.

Boat safari was also an amazing experience. We've seen many hippos and crocodiles, definitely not a waste of time.

Walking Safari with a bushman gave us a lot of new information on animals living in Selous as well as on local traditions. We could tell that the guide is putting on a show and it was a bit exaggerated but overall experience is on plus.

Accommodation was very modest. But we had electricity and hot showers. We also knew we should not expect 5 star hotel in the bush. Food was nice, mostly local and the view from the camp was really breathtaking.

"Great Experience "

Superb experience! A 5/5.

Lenard is the best guide, patient and very knowledgeable about flora and fauna.

He is smiling and has lots of anecdotes to tell us. In addition, very careful on the road which is not the case for all guides in Tanzania.

The proposed experiences are nice and we do not get bored!

It is not the must of comfort but for 3 days it does the trick.

To conclude, I recommend this trip.

"3 night safari in Selous"

First of all, our guide Michael was super good! He really made an effort for us to see the animals and stopped for time enough to take good photos. He had good knowledge of the animals and nature and was a very reliable driver also. Felt safe all the time.

Journey from Dar is quite long so be prepared. I think it took about 6hrs to reach the camp.

Food was Ok and the camp staff very nice and polite. Tentroom was clean and good and beds comfortable. Pool was Ok but the water is really warm😂

Boat safari and walking safari were nice but the game drives were absolutely the best! We saw a lot more animals than I could ever imagine!

Overall, it was a super good safari from the more budget side. Nothing luxurious but to get that kind of safari search from the high end..

And there are baboons in the camp, they were nice to watch:)

"Great experience "

Our guide Lenard was great. He was very friendly and chatty and helped with anything we needed, he even told us stories about Tanzania which we really loved. The camp we stayed in has WiFi which was amazing. We loved our accommodation.... we were not exactly sure what kind of tents/house we’d get but it turned out to be a huge tent build into a floor with a big roof - it was really unexpected and it looked awesome! Safari trips were amazing, we saw most of the animals (enjoyed watching lions sleep) and had a nice picnic in the park, which is around the corner from the camp. What we also loved is that there were monkeys jumping around the camp, we saw at least 3 different kinds and they were super cute. It was the wilderness we came to experience.

"Safari great but the stay not so mutch..."

I really enjoyed the safari tour in the car and the walking safari. Michael and our guide at the walking safari was exellent. They enjoyed their jobs and they were really impressive.

Location was beautiful and close to nature, lovable.

"Very nice safari and a perfect guide!"

It was such a nice trip! Our guide was the best - he was so humorous and knew a lot about the animals. We were supposed to have a trip to selous game reserve and mikumi, but because of the rain we couldn’t drive to mikumi. The office and our guide handled it very well, and we got some compensation for it.
