Awesome safari at Beho Beho

Beho Beho certainly lived up to its reputation. The accommodation, guiding, hospitality and food were all top notch.

We had an awesome stay with the only complaint being the weight we put on due to the constant provision of top quality cuisine.

Beho Beho is not cheap but certainly delivers.

We were fortunate to meet both Charlie and Sarah Bailey who shared their passion for the Selous and set up of Beho Beho.

The only minor downside we would flag is the distance to the lakes where we ended up driving to frequently to better game viewing but need to add that all Elephant encounters were local to Beho Beho.

Beho Beho review

A very luxurious camp with excellent levels of service and food
Very isolated and quiet location with no nearby camps or vehicles.
Amazing landscape.
Lake trip was excellent.

I did not like being seated seperately from my family for the communal dinners. Guests were expected to sit next to other guests and not members of their own party. On the first evening I sat next to a 12 year boy and an old lady, neither of whom I had met previously - my wife and daughters were guided to seats at the opposite end of the long communal table. This issue was resolved after speaking to the camp manager.

We saw the same family of three lions twice in four days of safari - otherwise no big cat sightings. No rhino and only very small family groups of elephant. Overall therefore, slightly disappointed with game sightings, although the hippo pool was very entertaining.

Who could ask for more?!

Beho Beho is stunning! The rooms are beautifully appointed with plenty of space to relax... Both the private and public areas. It felt like visiting a friend's wonderful home! The food was a delight and afternoon tea yielded the most delicious cakes imaginable. The days were quite structured but all the drives or walks out were most enjoyable. Our late afternoon walk had the surprising treat of sundowners waiting for us up on the ridge! Different guides were had on trips out, depending on interest; this occasionally leads to duplication of information but has the big plus of getting to know the different guides. They are all very knowledgeable and willing to share it with you... And can still answer the most basic questions with a smile and enthusiasm. Would definitely recommend a walk whilst there. The countryside is very beautiful and although animal contact is not quite so close up as in Ruaha, the landscape more than makes up for this. We still saw plenty of wildlife including 2 leopards and more hippos than we could imagine! All the staff were delightful as were our fellow guests. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Beho Beho review

Beho Beho was absolutely faultless.

The actual lodges were perfect - spotless, romantic, relaxing - I especially liked the open air showere. The setting was amazing. But it was the staff who made the holiday so special. Not only were they true experts in ther field but the effort they went to to ensure everyday was special and different - with a different setting for every meal. Every day we gasped with delight. The boys' favourite were the two walking safaris as we really felt part of the jungle - not just spectators. My favourite was the lake safari and springs.

Beho Beho is unique. A truly special place, providing a holiday of a lifetime.

Walking in Beho Beho

What can I add to all the reviews. Everything was excellent and we felt very welcome. Tinkling wineglasses in candlelight, good food and laughter at the outside dinnertable were a fantastic end of dusty and sweaty days.

We came to Beho Beho to walk. So we did ! We joined the Zebra, Wildebeast , Giraffes on the plains and Old Battle Fields, where we found a coin dated 1892. We met Elephants, Buffalo and Hippo┬┤s in the bush. Onismo was a good companion, but, walking in front of us, he was the only one who had seen the leopard very close.

The bushcamp was splendid and a great experience which we can recommend.

Beho Beho review

I flew straight through to Beho Beho - it's a great place to recover from jet lag! The room was lovely -right on up there with the best I have seen/enjoyed. Food superb; fabulous guides. great game viewing. best was the company, and meeting the characters, including the owners - getting the story behind the scenes.

I am just sorry I was so tired, and still had to tie up some loose work ends remotely, but at least that was expedited by the setting, and internet connections.

Beho Beho -The Very Best

This was our second visit to Beho Beho and it was just as wonderful as last year. Everyone made us feel so welcome, our banda was fabulous and we really enjoyed the bath! Karin's food was delicious - lobster, fillet steak, duck, prawns to name just a few of the fantastic meals we had in various locations in the camp and the Bush breakfasts and dinner were so exciting.

Onesmo, Heribert and Walter are superb guides, not only sharing their great knowledge but also making games drives and walks such fun.

Our very close encounter with a wonderfully peaceful elephant will never be forgotten, nor the swarm of Carmine Bee Eaters flying around us as we drove along and our sighting of a large pack of wild dogs. Only a small example of the incredible amount of wildlife we saw.

Beho Beho review

This has to be the highlight of our trip.

We expected a lot after reading the rave reviews on Beho Beho, and all our expectations were met and actually exceeded! We were looked after like royalties by management, guides and staff alike. The rooms, food/drinks, facilties and guiding were simply outstanding and we can only praise the efforts the Beho Beho staff made to please and surprise us all the time.

The Selous is a beautiful game reserve, teeming with wild life - we even got to see a pack of wild dogs and their pups! This was one of our best stays ever and we bring back with us wonderful memories.

Almost two weeks later, my husband and I are still raving about it...!

Beho Beho review

Sorry about the good rating only but it was not the fault of anyone at the camp - accomodation, food and general attention were excellent.

My great hope in going to Selous was to see wild dogs. I knew this would be difficult and have no complaint about not seeing them. The problem was the shortage of game in general, probably due to the fact that the short rains came early. The guides really tried their best, but we have been on quite a few safaris and this time at Beho Beho was probably the most disappointing from the game viewing point of view, which for us is the most important.

Also to maximise our chance of seeing the dogs we had decided to stay 6 nights, hoping that if we were unlucky at least there would be plenty of other game to see! Even the bush camp experience, faultless in every other respect, lacked a bit the wild touch because of the general feeling there were not too many wild animals around.

Beho Beho review

A really fun place to stay. Plenty of choice on activities and so well organised. Food was superb - breakfasts cooked out on safari, delicious teas, and evening meals really special - even lobster thermidor! Sundowners served in beautiful spots watching sunsets and appreciating the scenery.

Pool is small with little space to sit - not a problem when we were there but if more wanted to use this facility there wasn't really a large enough area. We understand this may form part of their forthcoming expansion plans.
