A real gem in the middle of the reserve

This was my first safari and I didn't know what to expect. We were greeted by genuinely happy staff with welcome drinks and shown to our tent, which was very comfortable. It was wonderful to be so close to the wild.....no fences and animals roaming around, but always I felt that there were staff who were 'keeping watch'. The tent was very comfortable and I particularly liked the 'evening Breeze' system of cooling the bed at night.

The food at this camp was superb. Every lunchtime and evening, we had a varied, well prepared and tasty meal. Breakfasts out on safari were magical....as were the sundowners. I felt that there was nothing that the staff wouldn't do to make our stay as memorable as possible. Our guide Penuel, was experienced, knowledgeable and again, wanted us to have the best experience from our safari.It was lovely to arrive back at camp to be met by smiling staff with cool flannels, who seemed genuinely interested in what we had seen on our game drives. I would thoroughly recommend this camp.

Palatial tents in the bush!

Having arrived by air at the airstrip we were met by our guide, Emmanuel, and he asked us if we wanted a drink prior to setting off on the first game drive en route to the camp. I have to admit I was keen to get going but glad I changed my mind as he quickly erected a table with cloth and placed chairs out before proceeding to brew a cafetière of fresh coffee and pot of tea taken in stainless steel cups. I though it was so quintessentially English to be taking tea and biscuits in the bush having just flown into the middle of nowhere - great start!

We shared our drive transport with another couple who we didn’t know which worked very well as we gelled together from the start: we all arrived on the same plane and discovered we lived 5 miles away from each other in Sussex - bizarre!

Accommodation at the camp was extremely good and set a balance between luxury and minimalist. A real plus was the privacy afforded each tent as you could not hear your neighbour or see their accommodation. The netting side of the accommodation which is the view from the bed was wonderful in that one awoke to dawn and the sounds of nature only inches away. Nighttime was interesting as one can hear the animals moving quite close and you don’t know what or where they are! Hippos ambled quite close by as evidenced by the tracks and dung.

The food was good and neatly presented. The staff were very nice and attentive throughout. Amissy and Robert were always on hand to provide any refreshments and ensured that there was always someone on hand to help or serve you. The game drives were fun and thorough in searching out the animals. Emmanuel was a super guide and nothing was too much trouble (10/10 for him). We stayed 3 days and 4 nights. However as you effectively do a game drive inbound and outbound to the airstrip we felt that we had 5 days of safaris. We completed a short walking safari and fishing boat trip which were both worthwhile. Sundowners were hard to beat and the views coupled with a G&T were literally intoxicating!

Overall we had absolutely no complaints about our experience at Roho ya Selous. It is quite a while since I have ever stated that about a location!
