Beho Beho Tree-house: Our full report

Beho Beho has recently opened a new fly-camp for guests who stay for four nights or more at the main camp.

The Beho Beho team have built an exclusive treehouse which enables couples to spend a night under the African sky from the comfort of a purpose built platform in the treetops.

Forget your preconceptions of your average tree house, this one has not stinted on luxury. The platform is built into a leadwood tree, overlooking a sand riverbed. The Beho Beho treehouse comes complete with a comfortable double bed and mosquito net, which can be moved so that guests can sleep under the stars or under the cover of a canvas pavilion depending on their preference. In addition to this, there is an en-suite bathroom with a flush toilet and a shower.

Guests depart from Beho Beho in the afternoon on foot, accompanied by an armed guide who will point out any interesting wildlife spotted along the way. After around two hours or so, refreshing sundowners await you at the Treehouse, and guests will have some time to freshen up in the outdoor shower before going to a clearing nearby to have dinner around a campfire.

You will then head back to the treehouse for a night of star gazing and listening to the sounds of the African bush. In the morning, guests will be woken up to birdsong as the sun comes up over the Selous Game Reserve before going on a guided morning walk. The walk will end with a gourmet bush breakfast under the shade of a large tree. Guests will then have the option to either drive back to Beho Beho or continue another guided bush walk.

Guests must pre-book before they arrive to Beho Beho so please speak to one of our Tanzania specialist if this is something that interests you.


Our view

The Beho Beho treehouse is perfect for any couple who want to spend a night experiencing a sleep out in the bush whilst maintaining a level of luxury. Only two people can go to the treehouse on any one night and so it creates a real feeling of exclusivity.

Birdwatching
The guides here are real experts on the birdlife, and the Selous is a great area for birdwatching in Tanzania. With waterbirds in the floodplains and lakes around the Rufiji River and dry-country raptors in the Beho Beho Hills, there’s good variety here.

Luxury
This is Beho Beho’s satellite fly-camp, used as a ‘treat’ for a night in the bush from the camp. It’s probably the most luxurious ‘fly-camp’ that we know in Africa. Expect smart cocktails and a superb campfire dinner before retiring to sleep in a sumptuous double bed under the stars.
