Beho Beho has a unique location in the Selous Game Reserve – high on a hill in an area dotted with baobab trees. Indeed, the name Beho Beho means ‘breeze’, which is apt given its airy location. Its site was first used as early as 1972, and it’s not only one of the reserve’s first camps, but also one of the few camps in the Selous that is set away from the river or one of the lakeshores. In 2004 the camp was rebuilt using locally sourced materials and it regularly undergoes a complete refurbishment.
Our view of Beho Beho
Since it opened, Beho Beho has set very high standards. This is one of the very best camps we know anywhere in Africa. While it’s smart and luxurious, the welcome here is always warm and the mood is friendly, not pretentious. The food is outstanding, like dining out at a very good restaurant at every meal. Most importantly, the guiding is first-class, delivered by individuals who know their subject inside out and for the most part have perfected the art of passing it on to guests across the whole spectrum of safari experience, from first-time safari-goers to those who come back again and again. And despite these very high, self-imposed standards, Beho Beho still manages to exceed expectations. The only downsides are that it isn't on a riverbank or lakeshore (the defining appeal of many Selous camps) and the relatively high price tag, although this can be offset by long-stay reductions: the minimum stay in any case is 3 nights.
