Is the Beho Beho for Me?
Beho Beho is known as ‘wansalishi’, which means when translated from Swahili ‘, the pioneer’.
The first camp in the Northern sector of the Selous game reserve, its stone cottages, perched on the lower slopes of Namikwera Hill overlooking Kipalala Hill, offer panoramic views over the Rufiji River flood plain.
One hundred forty-five miles southwest of Dar es Salaam, as the crow flies, the camp is 3 miles from the grave of Frederick Courteney Selous.
Furnished in the style of a private house with comfortable seating and dining areas, the most noticeable thing is that there are few walls.
Shaded and protected by a vast palm-thatched roof, there is a full-sized billiards table, the Eagle’s nest for private dining and lots of cosy nooks.
Meals are a moveable feast not confined to the formal dining area.
