Siwandu Tented Suites

Siwandu Tented Suites

Broadly spaced along the lakeshore, Siwandu’s superbly appointed accommodation ensures maximum privacy and every opportunity to soak up the sights and sounds of Selous. From either of the wooden decked verandas sit with a cup of tea at sunrise watching the bush come to life, or relax with a gin and tonic as the bush blushes under sunset. The spacious octagonal tents of canvas and secure mosquito netting and topped in thatch, not only allows for constant air-flow, but also enables guests to gaze upon the animals as they saunter past. Observe them while reclining on the majestic king sized bed under the overhead fan or from the open-air stargazer, solar-heated showers which adjoin the en suite bathrooms. Siwandu is evenly divided into two more intimately sized camps; North Camp and South Camp. Each camp has its own lounge, well stocked bar and dining area, and each has its own kitchen where our chefs produce fine cuisine. All meals are complimented by a good wine selection. No movement between camps is required as each has its own host, guides, swimming pool, game vehicles and jetty for boat safaris. For that intimate, uninterrupted, bush experience, Siwandu is perfect for forgetting all the troubles of the modern world and immersing oneself in unspoilt nature with just the right amount of bush luxury.
