Siwandu Luxury Safari Lodges, Tanzania

Your safari tent stands on a raised platform. It’s spacious and airy, cool and even romantic. It’s shaded by a whispering palm forest and has modern safari luxuries like an en suite, an open air shower and two large game-viewing verandas.

Wonderful. But it’s the location that makes Siwandu (formerly known as Selous Safari Camp) so irresistible. Set in the heart of a little known game reserve that is actually twice the size of Belgium, it takes advantage of its position amidst the mighty Rufiji river system to show you a wonderful array of game animals – all of whom are drawn irresistibly to the water, the lakes, the tributaries and secret watering holes.
