Beho Beho

Stone banda

The rooms at Beho Beho are very much in keeping with the expansive feel of the lodge. They are attractively decorated en-suite bandas with huge canopied beds, large comfy armchairs and wonderful old writing desks. Each banda has a large area facing out into the game reserve, separated from the rest of the lounge and bedroom by a step. This area is part lounge and part veranda, and the entire front is open to the view.

The rooms are built using local stone, while the natural wood door frames, bed frames and wall lights are made from dead wood found out in the Selous bush. The rooms all have ceiling fans and 24-hour electricity with UK-style 3-pin plugs.

There is a separate ante-room for luggage and clothes storage.

All the rooms have large, separate bathrooms with great outdoor showers, flush loos and dual washbasins. The stone walls and floors were all built using stones found in the park, while the pebbles used to decorate the top of the basin plinth were all gathered from the Rufiji River.

Toiletries (by Charlotte Rhys), hairdryers and light cotton dressing gowns are provided in every room, adding a touch of indulgent luxury. The bathrooms are probably the best equipped we have encountered in a safari camp, with shaving mirrors, retractable washing line, loofah and pumice stones included amongst the thoughtful extras.
