"Good Bush Camping at Rufiji"
The pool area was nice and the food was simple but wholesome and of good quality. This is definatley a camp not a lodge, the tents were basic but comfortable with fantastic views, if a little dated.
The camp could be greatly improved if the standard of customer service displayed by the management were improved, simple things such as a welcome in the bar area as opposed to a list of do's and don'ts at reception, talking to guests at and around dinner as opposed to eating their own meals in the corner and asking guests how things were rather than having to be found to ask for things."

"Rufiji River Camp review"
The owner of the camp was a bit taciturn and spent most of the time at the end of the bar which we thought odd. The rest of the staff were friendly. Our guide had 30 years of experience and was excellent." See all these reviews: 14n in Tanzania
"Good place to start"
Our tents were adjoining with a spectacular view of the river - best sunsets before Zanzibar. Accommodation functional, clean and adequate - bit of a squeeze for the kids who were sharing 3 to a tent but fine. Food was good and lack of a choice was no problem.
We did two all day jeep safari's, two boat safari's, one walking safari and one afternoon jeep safari.
All were well organised and we particularly enjoyed the first boat safari and the first all day safari.
The only slight critisism would be that we had a feeling that if we had stayed much longer the choice of activities would have become slightly repetitive. Our stay was short enough however for this not to be an issue. Also the camps position at the east of the reserve meant slightly longer travelling times to areas of activity than some other camps.
Overall our response to Rufiji River was very positive - but then we had nothing to compare it to!" See all these reviews: 7n in Tanzania; 7n in Zanzibar
