Siwandu

Selous Game Reresve, Tanzania

Make Siwandu part of your safari from

Situated in the largest protected wilderness reserve on the continent, Siwandu (formerly Selous Safari Camp) comprises well appointed classic safari tents on the banks of the Rufiji River in one of the most photogenic and wildlife rich areas. Guided game viewing by boat, car and on foot.

Only 200 km West of Dar es Salaam lies the mighty Selous Game Reserve, one of Africa’s least known yet wildest conservation areas. At an unbelievable 55,000 sq km Selous is almost twice the size of Belgium and four times larger than the famous Serengeti in the North, covering 5% of Tanzania’s land area. The Selous’ ecosystem as a whole is made up of a few conservation areas, namely Mikumi in the North and the Kilombero game controlled area in the West, covering in total over 90,000 sq km of pristine wilderness devoid of human influence.
