Camp two of four

The activities both water and land based were great. Impressed by the standard of service accommodation and food. The guides were excellent and very knowledgable.

The whole camp was run superbly and we would not hesitate to return.

Selous Impala Camp review

There was much less game to see here, although the guides worked very hard at finding animals for us.

The level of comfort was higher, but we decided we didn't really need it! We preferred the simplicity of Manze camp. That said, we were extremely well looked after and couldn't fault the food or service.

Selous Impala Camp review

We had a fabulous three nights at Impala and Barbara, Lorenzo and Andrea were lovely hosts. With all the tents and main areas built on raised platforms we had great views of the river and hippos! We also enjoyed the company of Brian, the giraffe who wandered freely around the camp and paid a memorable visit to our tents! Having a family tent ( 2 tents with a shared veranda) was perfect and the facilities were excellent.

We found the whole staff superb; our clothes were perfectly laundered and ironed, the food outstanding and our personal waiter, Idi, a delight. He taught our ten year old to count to ten in Swahili and sang us Jambo Jambo! It was particularly nice having all the soft drinks included in the price.

We had fabulous drives, bush breakfasts and boat trips and we were amazed at the variety and quantity of wildlife. The highlight was doing the early morning walk (adults only) with a fabulous guide followed by a bush breakfast. The only negative aspect was having to leave!

Wonderful stay at Selous Impala Camp

We are so happy that we finished our honeymoon here, as it is a definite step up in luxury. The food was fantastic, and a lot of thought has definitely gone into the decor of the tents and communal areas. The views are fantastic, and the activities offered on the river are a nice variation. Again the guide and driver are friendly and extremely knowledgeable of both the animals and the area.

On the first afternoon, Barbara and Andrea had arranged for a boat safari as a different experience to a game drive for us, which finished with a champagne surprise at a fantastic viewpoint for a spectacular sunset. This was much appreciated, and all the staff here were lovely and welcoming.

Selous Impala Camp review

Perfecto! Wonderful from start to finish.

As a family of four we had our own jeep, guide and driver throughout our three night stay. It exceeded our expectations. A different location for our dinner each night. Different game safaris every day. Close encounters at every turn.

Many thanks to Barbara, Seningo, Khalid, Iddi and Abdhulla. Asante sana!

Selous Impala Camp review

Great little camp, it looks to be well managed and the staff team are very friendly and efficient. They go to considerble trouble to set up different options for dining, and we had a lovely sprise for a sundowner on the first evening.

With Italian owners (and managers) coffee is taken very seriously - they have a real coffee machine, a great coup!
Some very knowledgable guides also keen to share enthisiasm for birds.

Selous Impala Camp review

We really enjoyed our stay at Impala Camp. All the staff made us feel so welcome - Lorenzo and Andrea. The guides Gerard and Saningo were brilliant and drivers Omari and Khalid were very good.

Game drives, boat safaris and walking safaris were all excellent.
