Siwandu is a classic luxury tented camp located on the banks of Lake Nzerakera in the most prolific and thrilling game viewing area of the Selous. North camp caters for 6 tents and the South camp caters for 7 tents, each with its own pool, dining and main area providing a very personal and intimate safari experience.
The North camp can be partly or completely booked (4-6 tents) to ensure the ultimate 'private' exclusivity.
Siwandu offers an exceptionally large array of activities to choose from be it by boat, vehicle or foot, your guides will personally tailor all activities to suit the guest so that they get the most out of the Reserve in the time they have available. All Selous activities generally go out after breakfast, quite different to other places due to the topography of the land and the animal's dependence on drinking water. The main game movements in Selous occur a little later in the day as most animals make their way down to the lakes to drink only after the sun has come up, before this time most of the animals are far inland where there is little road networks for driving. In this way our guests can relax and after a nice leisurely breakfast embark on a drive or boat with a full stomach and then can stay out in the reserve all the way until lunch. After some more food and a small siesta, guests can then go out again in the late afternoon from about 16h00 when animals generally come back to life again providing more interesting game viewing. All activities must return to camp after sunset for about 19h00 as this is the rule of the park. Night Drives are not allowed in Selous.
