"You don't get better than the Beho Beho"
The guiding is top notch. The camp and the staff are top notch. The bandas are incredible and the view spectacular. Phil and Trish are the most gracious hosts and incredibly nice people who go out of their way to make sure their guests are happy. The food could not be better (I am still trying to lose the weight from all those amazing desserts).
The Selous is breathtaking with so much changing scenery within the park and lots of beautiful animals to photograph. During my five day stay, I had the opportunity to participate in all the activities offered including game drives (some with interesting history lessons), the walking safaris and the lake safari. The combination of activities is fantastic as you get to have very different experiences on all three.
As I mentioned above, the guiding is top notch and there is nothing on this planet that compares to the sensation you get from a walking safari - all your senses jump into overdrive. Knowing that you are in extremely capable hands makes it something really worth experiencing." See all these reviews: 10n in Tanzania; 5n in Zanzibar
"Fabulous camp; fabulous people"
The Lodge itself is elevated giving spectacular views over the bush. The bandas are enormous, comfortable and very well appointed and good to chill out in during the hot part of the afternoon if you don't fancy a dip in the pool.
The food was excellent and my vegetarian option was always scrumptious and imaginative.
The standard of guiding was exceptional. We would not hesitate to go back here.
One of our bags was left in Nairobi and Trisha kept on the case and then arranged for one of the guides to drive 2 hours (4 hour round trip) to collect the bag from another airstrip in Selous; otherwise we would have waited 5 days, not 2 for the bag to catch up with us. So full marks." See all these reviews: 7n in Tanzania; 7n in Zanzibar
"Beho Beho review"
Excellent guiding, not only very informative and attentive, but also great and amusing company!
There is a lot of wildlife around the camp, keep an eye on the drinking pool. Don't hesitate to go on the walking safari, it's a whole different and exciting approach of the bush. Beho Beho is perfectly managed by Phil and Trisha, very professional and friendly.
It is the merit of the management and the staff that this luxurious camp never becomes pretentious. We felt part of the Beho Beho family for those days.
As soon as you leave Beho beho you start thinking of going back!" See all these reviews: 10n in Tanzania
"Luxury without pretense"
The food is great, on par with some of the better restaurants in any city and certainly served in quantities which at least we found impossible to completely consume.
Wildlife sightings in and around the camp are great and the hippo pool is not to be missed!
Guiding is at levels meeting expectations for a place of this caliber, but the highlights for us were the walks. I was initially concerned about the level of luxury taking away from the overall experience, but this turned out to be an unfounded worry and we enjoyed our 5 days there very much!"

"Return to Beho Beho"
Phil and Tricia were attentive hosts and good company. Under their leadership the lodge ran like clockwork with very attentive staff.
The guiding at Beho Beho is second to none. The three Tanzanian guides were not only well educated in all aspects of the flora and fauna of the Selous but were delightful and amusing company too.
We love the family atmosphere that has been created at Beho Beho. It was a shame that for most of our stay we were the only true guests.
The food was wonderfully varied but on occasions a little too much for our elderly digestive systems!!" See all these reviews: 13n in Tanzania
"Remote luxury, faultless organisation, great"
Although we knew before we booked that Beho Beho were committed to communal dining, we would have appreciated the opportunity to eat alone on at least one of the days. The Safari breakfasts and lunches were excellent, but we both found the dinner menus too rich and lacking in flavour. Too much pastry and not enough delicate flavours.
I'm not sure if we were warned about the 6.30 morning starts! Of course, once we were there, we understood why we needed to set off early every morning - but we were fairly tired by lunch-time and, because there was a pool and lots to see from our Banda, we opted out of the late afternoon drive a couple of times.
Would certainly recommend the camp." See all these reviews: 12n in Tanzania
"A slice of heaven in the African wilderness!"
The camp is absolutely stunning but what made this trip so memorable for us was the family feel and the staff who were so kind and generous with us. We were pampered and really taken care of and there were tons of thoughtful surprises waiting for us as it was our honeymoon and I simply cannot imagine having picked a better way to spend it. Thank you so so much to the Beho Beho family and of course the team at Expert Africa for sending us to this little slice of heaven.
P.S. As a vegetarian, the kitchen team went above and beyond to meet every single one of my needs and put together some absolutely delicious veggie dishes for me! Yum yum!" See all these reviews: 6n in Tanzania; 5n in Zanzibar
"Beho Beho review"
Great team - rangers + support team - couldn't have been more friendly & attentive. Every drive - both in jeep & on foot - was a different experience. Phil is clearly a great manager & envoy for Beho Beho.
Attention to detail excellent + responsive to guest needs. All dinner experiences were different & memorable." See all these reviews: 10n in Tanzania
"Incredible place and great hosting"
We felt totally relaxed and well looked after throughout our stay. Everyone at Beho Beho was friendly and helpful. We were spoilt with fantastic game viewing, drives and walks.
The food was top notch and we were truly well fed and watered. The tree house is well worth staying in as it for those wanting to do something different.
We couldn't fault the trip. We have been on other safaris, but this one was easily the best by a long way" See all these reviews: 12n in Tanzania
Friendly staff and the guides were all very knowledgeable. Food is delicious. The tree house is definitely worth a visit. Walking safaris were fun and plenty of animals around.
Something new and exciting every day!" See all these reviews: 6n in Tanzania; 1n in Zanzibar
