Beautiful camp and terrific staff

Beho Beho lived up to all of the glowing reviews I had read about it before my visit.

The facilities are incredible and the food is fabulous. But what stood out most to me is the personal interest that the managers and guides and staff take in each guest. I could tell that it really mattered to each of them that I had the best experience possible at Beho Beho.

Special thanks to Rika, Werner, Herribert, Salum and Saningo for a great stay in a wonderful place.

Fabulous safari

Staying at the camp was an amazing experience, partly due to the wonderful set up where animals can walk through the camp. We woke up on our first morning to find elephants blocking our path from our room to the communal area - how amazing is that!? It is beautifully decorated, with a homely feel but stylish too.

The guides and staff were so welcoming, and genuinely interested in us and what we wanted to do with our time and our safari experience. We loved meeting the different guides and enjoyed being able to dine with them and hear their stories and adventures. The food was fantastic and every night we had a wonderful dinner; they also took into account our dietary requirements and always provided excellent alternatives when needed.

We had expected to enjoy our holiday but our safari at Beho Beho exceeded our expectations because of how the guides made it such a personal experience.

Beho Beho review

A luxury camp. Service, accommodation, food and facilities could not be better.

Slower paced safari than Mwagusi, animal sightings and guiding good. Meal times feel quite formal.

Utterly wonderful

It is almost unbelievable that such a luxurious safari venue could exist in such a remote location and provide the high standards of service we experienced at Beho Beho.

The location on a hillside overlooking Selous gives constant interest from the passing game and the advantage of the breeze to cool the high tempreatures.

Guiding is of outstanding quality and so is the range of birds and animals that can be seen. We learnt so much during our stay. The real sense of being in the wild can be judged by our only seeing one other vehicle on safaris during our 5 night stay.

The tracks in the area are rough so you will be bumped around from time to time.

Do take the all-day trip to Tagalalla Lake if you get the chance and be surprised by the whole experience.

Food is of a standard that surpasses many leading restaurants - you won't be any lighter on your return.

Endless care and attention has gone into every aspect, from ironwood trees to hold up the roof to table decorations that change with every meal and a different setting for each dinner. It is that depth of thought and individuality that sets Beho Beho apart.

In many decades of holidays we have only ever been back to the same location again once. Beho Beho could well turn out to be the second.

Beho Beho review

The location of this camp is fabulous, looking out over a varied landscape (some plains, some wooded areas, some river valleys) with game visible without having to go anywhere. At various times of the day it was not unusual to have elephant, hippo, baboon and hyenas pass through the camp, and elephants eating between the bandas at night was not uncommon. The location was not good for mobile phone coverage, which did not bother us in the slightest.

The rooms were very comfortable with arm chairs and couches to relax in, and also had electricity available for fans, hair dryers, chargers etc. Wi-Fi was provided, too, although we did not use it. The bathroom had a shower open to the sky (from where we were able to observe nocturnal elephant activity on a couple of occasions) and double wash basins. The front of the room is completely open to allow unhindered views, although there is an electric fence to deter unwelcome visitors.

Meals were excellent, both in terms of the taste, quality and presentation of the food that was served and also in the imaginative use of different venues around the camp to eat. Alcoholic beverages were included (some perfectly palatable South African wine) and the staff were always attentive to empty glasses. Dietary requirements were readily accommodated.

The game viewing activities were generally split into morning and afternoon sessions, with the morning one starting at around 6.15am and the afternoon one at 4.30pm. The morning activity included a picnic breakfast, even if it was a walk and the guide had to carry it all! Lunch was served at approximately midday, so there was time to snooze between activities. The guides were very flexible and would take us on drives or walks as requested. The ability to do walks was fantastic, as they were proper walks in the bush with the possibility of seeing anything and everything, and not just a sanitised little pootle around the camp. We even had the privilege of exploring a new area with our guides, where they had not walked before. At the end of our week we were treated to a full day's excursion of some 11 hours and covering 130km, to see some of the more remote areas of the park that were beyond the reach of a normal game drive. We thought this was fantastic! The other activity that was offered was a trip to lake Tagalala, where there was a short excursion by boat. This afforded some good views of crocodiles and water birds and we would have liked it to have lasted longer, but a sighting of wild dogs rather upset the schedule!

We had 2 guides as well as Walter, the manager, when we were out on our various activities. All were exceptionally knowledgable and enthusiastic about what they were doing. In addition, Walter and Karin, the catering manager, did a fine job of playing the host and hostess at meals and other times.

Other facilities of the camp included a very refreshing, if compact, pool and a full size snooker table.

The weather was generally very good during our stay, but following one heavy shower the insect population exploded. This proved quite a nuisance as they got everywhere, making that evening's meal an occasion for extra vigilance. Fortunately the net curtains around the bed were sound and our sleep was not disturbed by the extra bugs.

Overall a fantastic experience and we'd do it all again tomorrow.

Bush Paradise

Returned after ten years. Bandas larger than previously. Good extension to bar and reception area. Lovely swimming pool.

Staff. In Walter's absence Oona looked afer us very well. Lynn the temporary caterer in Karin's absence was also excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Guides. Superb. Charming, looked after the guests. Very well informed and well able to present the bush and discuss all the plants and animals. Drove at a sensible speed. Served drinks and picnics with professionalism.

Food. Ever thing was excellent. Food Staff were charming and cared very much for us all.

Itinery. Well constructed for out stay of one week. A good pace.

One of two favourite camps in Africa.

Simply the best.

The best camp we have stayed in Africa.

The attention to detail in making our stay as pleasurable as possible cannot be faulted. We were made to feel part of a family as opposed to paying guests. We will return!

Beho Beho was amazing

An incredibly luxurious camp, where the staff treat you more like house guests than paying clients. Fantastic walking and driven safaris, with more than enough to do for the 5 nights we were there.

The only thing that can be faulted (and it isn't their fault) is that the park roads need to be maintained a little better and it is a shame night drives (say once a week) are not allowed.
