Luxury camp - great guiding

This was our second visit to Beho Beho which obviously means we rate it! The camp itself is extremely comfortable but not formal. Set on an escarpment, the bandhas are incredibly spacious and open to the bush. There is also a small swimming pool affording a wonderful view of the world below.

The staff do all they can to ensure you have a good time and, unlike other camps where you are assigned one guide, you go out with all the guides at different times. I really like this system, as you get a different slant as everyone stamps his own personality on his game drives. We saw plenty of game - including wild dogs hunting and had a good day out on Lake Tagalala.

A warm and friendly camp with excellent guiding - thoroughly enjoyable.

One of the best

I have stayed in a number of camps in Africa and Beho Beho is definately in the top league from every point of view.

The accommodation is excellent with your own personal view of the Selous. The guiding is of the highest quality. The food would past muster against the best city restaurants. The particular highlight of Beho Beho is the hospitality and general ambience, you almost feel like part of the camp 'family'. Yes, it is more expensive than the alternatives, but if ever there was a case of you get what you pay for, it is here.

I did travel off season and found it rather hot, and the insects when on game drives were a nuisance, however, this meant that there was no other traffic and there were plenty of young animals. As Beho Beho is on a hill there were cooling breezes and, with the in-room fans, it was no problem sleeping at night (after getting used to the animal sounds, particularly the hippos).

Hopefully I will have the chance to visit again during the dry season.

Beho Beho review

This place is pure luxury! It felt like "home" from the start. The staff was very friendly and extremely welcoming. I really liked their "family-style" of doing things: all the guests and guides ate all the meals together, and they rotated the guides so that we could get a chance with other guests and other guides.

We stayed over Christmas, and they gave us gifts on our pillows every night. Also, because my husband and I were celebrating our honeymoon, on our last evening, we were surprised with a candlit bubble bath with champagne. The little surprises and touches were neverending. It was so hard to leave because we wanted to stay and stay and stay forever.
The room was beautiful with an incredible view.

The kitchen was extremely accommodating to my vegetarian diet. I actually felt like I ate better than my fellow meat-eating guests. They made meals for me specially and they were so delicious.

I enjoyed the remoteness of Beho Beho, as well. It felt, at times, like the whole world was at our feet. I would love to return.

The luxury Camp......Beho,Beho.

As a finsl stop on our three week safari we could not have asked for a better camp. Beautiful bandas, great views, incredible food ( how do you produce great lobster for supper in the bush ?), attentive staff, excellent guides and good game viewing.

Lions parading through the camp and the gardener, a big bull tusker ! It simply could not have been better...............the lake trip with endless Hippo and Crocs, the Brunch ashore courtesy of the brilliant chefs and the last night supper up in the house which was simply the icing on the cake.

Many thanks to Phil, Trish and especially Mama B !

Beho Beho review

A perfect camp to end a trip. I think if I started here, I would have been disappointed with the other camps, which were all great in different ways. Felt totally pampered and happy to skip a safari to enjoy staying in camp. The food was excellent - like going to a fine restaurant in any city. I appreciated all the effort for this, but personally, I would have been happier with less heavy, more simple, maybe healthier/local choices. It felt a little fussy and formal as we are sitting outside in such an amazing place. Excellent staff - everyone. Cannot recommend it highly enough - as a conclusion to an amazing time to Tanzania.

3rd time at Beho Beho

This is still our favourite lodge in Africa and we have experienced quite a few over the years, We received a very warm welcome from Phil and Tricia the managers and all the staff who remembered us from previous visits. It was like returning home.

The Selous was glorious. It had recently rained and everywhere was green and dotted with flowers. Clouds of butterflies took off around every corner. It was our first time at that time of the year and the contrast with the dry season was what we had hoped for. We expected to see less game as there was water everywhere but with our expert guides we saw so much. The highlight was a pack of Wild Dogs on our penultimate morning. They had been seen in the area the previous week but proved elusive until that day. They came streaming over the hill in the morning sunlight with blood on their muzzles. What a sight. We were thrilled after thirty years of looking !!

We went out with all the guides in turn who are first class. They each have their own specialities and interests but their general knowledge is excellent. We had two lovey trips out on Lake Tagalala which made a good contrast to the game drives

We love the family atmosphere at Beho Beho. Everyone drinks and eats together to discuss the day`s events and exchange experiences. A rumour was doing the rounds that at Beho Beho "they dress for dinner"!! This is not true. However we always showered and put on different clothes after the evening game drive as did most others.

Standards of food and accommodation remain as high as ever under Tricia`s watchful eye and she and Phil run a very efficient and professional lodge.

We love it and hope to return.

Beho Beho review

We had a superb experience and cannot praise the staff enough. I'm not sure where to start! because everything was excellent ++++!

The banda was both comfortable and an experience - the viewing gallery meant you felt part of the Reserve and we spent hours just looking and listening.

Everyone says the guiding at Beho Beho is excellent. It was far better than we could imagine covering not just the animals but the ecology, creating an understanding of how everyithing interacted. Eaing our meals with the guides - as part of the family - gave us real insight of their lives.

The food and the ever changing location in which we ate was top quality. Between booking and our holiday I had developed a problem with swallowing. Not phased the food was tweaked so I could enjoy it and the daily smoothies were great.

We went on that particular date because it was the 100th year anniversay of the WW! action at Beho Beho in which my husbands grandfather took part being close to Capltain Salou when he was killed. Being able to pool information meant we all were able to understand what had happened.

Beho Beho review

We stayed here in early November for our honeymoon and it was a real treat. The bandas are truly beautiful, better than any hotel room we have ever stayed at and with the most amazing view.

Very spectacular. Beho Beho is full of treats - the food is amazing and the Swahili lunch is still our favourite meal of the whole two week trip. I won't give too many details to ruin the surprise, but the team do go out of their way to offer unique and special experiences so if you have been on safari a lot, this would be a wonderful option to experience it in a different way.

Return to Beho Beho

Beho Beho is a special place.

Partly due to the location in the hills, giving an amazing view down into the wooded valley. Partly due to the people, who passion for tracking, observing and sharing their knowledge is astonishing (even on a trip where ALL the guiding was of an excellent standard), and back at camp you are treated to wonderful food (too much).

The rooms are beautiful - I have another writing desk!

If the out door meal was gate-crashed by a hippo, one cannot blame it (and the organised retreat was very carefully handled).

Walking here is very good.

Safari of a lifetime at Beho Beho

My wife and I spent five fantastic days at Beho Beho in October 2016. The hosts are incredibly welcoming and the sociable atmosphere is completely unique. The guides rotate during your visit, which is great because they all have something slightly different to offer. They also take turns to host lunches and dinners, which is another great touch (guests all dine together).

The camp is in a very secluded location, so it's very unlikely that you will see any other vehicles or lodges. The bandas are perfectly laid out and thoughtfully decorated - they also have amazing views of the valley. There is a great amount of wildlife, particularly near the lakes, although it's probably fair to say that the wildlife population in the Selous is less dense than in some other national parks in Africa.

All in all, I would recommend Beho Beho very highly!
