repeat trip better than the first
Beho Beho is like our African family. The guides and staff are simply exceptional . We were in Banda 5, the "honeymoon suite" with a spectacular new outdoor bathtub.Read more about the whole safari
Beho Beho lives up to its reputation
We had great expectations of Beho Beho and these were fully met. The Selous combined perfectly with Ruaha, providing different and contrasting scenery and excellent game viewing, while maintaining the feeling of complete isolation. For example we had long game drives to Lakes Tagalala and Manze without seeing another vehicle all day.
While the location of other camps on the Rujifi river in the Selous may have some advantages, particularly in the dry season, the location and views from Beho Beho are stunning and the easy access to the lakes allows tremendous game viewing as the animals move in to drink and the predators follow - we saw 4 separate lion prides. The guiding (Salum and Sean) was top class and evening walks from the camp with Sacha were a particular highlight for us and led to close encounters with elephant, buffalo, giraffe, etc.
The bandas are exceptional and the food and variety of dinner and lunch locations was excellent allowing continual game viewing in the valley below and at the local waterhole where we were lucky enough to see a leopard during dinner. The atmosphere in the camp was excellent and Tam and Sacha's easy manner made us feel very welcome. Beho Beho is luxury in the bush and for us combined very well with the more earthy Mwagusi in the Ruaha.
There are special places in the world and this is a very special place with very special people. The variety of game viewing is outstanding but it is the people that make this an exceptional place. Sasha and Tam are a couple made in heaven who spread their happiness to every corner of the camp.
The game viewing is splendid, the walking fantastic and the visit to the lake stunning, add to this some of the best food in Africa and you start to understand why it really is a must visit place
If there ever was a "once"... this would be it. A once in a lifetime holiday, in a once in a lifetime location, with amazing scenery, wildlife and importantly fantastic characters. Attention to detail was impeccible, we felt spoilt for our entire stay. Thanks to Sacha and Tam for ensuring all ran smoothly and to Sean, Onesmo and Salum for their expert guiding.
Memories of this stay will be etched on our minds forever...

"excellent" is too weak a word for it
Beho Beho is an unforgetable experience! First of all, its location is breath-taking - the views are fabulous. The camp itself is a very stylish, yet an absolutely unpretentious place - it is luxurious in many respects, but paradoxically it does feel like home.
The drives and walks were fantastic - we cannot imagine a better first safari trip... The guides we had were very professional and knowledgeable, they always went out of their way to show and tell us as much as possible.
The whole place is run impeccably. The staff was very friendly, competent and always smiling. Every part of the service - from the laundry to the cleaning - was just perfect.
As for the food, it was always delicious and served in a lovely way. The wake-up tea is a great idea - it's an excellent way to wake up before the morning drive. The idea of serving lunch and dinner at several locations makes every meal special. And the surprise breakfast at Tagalala Lake is unforgettable.
It's a very special place and we are definitely going to go back there one day. The only worry is we are always going to compare every other place to Beho Beho from now on and the result will always be the same: Beho Beho rules! ;)

Beho Beho review
Sacha and Tam were delightful and managed everything so well. A superb swimming pool.
We will return.
Wonderful stay at Beho Beho safari lodge
The whole experience was wonderful. The accommodation was excellent, everything had been thought of such as mosquito repellent, a torch for the evenings, a complimentary kanga for the pool, washing powder for the ladies to wash their smalls.
The food was excellent and we particularly enjoyed their custom of laying lunch and dinner at a different place for each meal with different table settings.
We thought the guiding was very good indeed (although we had nothing to compare it with) and were pleased to be there for Sean and Kim Lues' last week there - they have now moved to Dar - they were delightful and extremely knowledgeable hosts. We also thoroughly enjoyed the other 3 guides too. Their knowledge seemed limitless.
We were lucky to be the only guests for the first 3 nights - very spoiling.
