The Camp

Rufiji River Camp was redesigned in 2009 to compliment the perfect location on a promontory in the river bank. Built by local craftsmen, the Camp combines Makuti palm roofs with Selous sourced paving stones and farmed hard woods to create a beautiful and comfortable accommodation from which to enjoy the Selous Game Reserve.  The shaded swimming pool is a great way to cool off between safari activitis.


Classic Tents

The tents are all pitched underneath thatched roofs with massive verandas giving views up and down the river.  Each tent has an en suite bathroom, with solar heated water for showering.  There are 11 individual classic individual tents well spaced along the river bank. 



Rufiji has 3 suites, each with 2 large tents on a shared platform with private plunge pool.  Each tent has it's own stylish bathroom.  The suites are ideal for famillies or friends wanting some extra space and privacy or the extra touch for the special anniversay or honeymoon.


Dining / Bar

With the focus on the river views and wildlife, the restaurant and bar are built to reflect this.  Al fresco dining lit by star light, private dinners along the river bank or that end of the evening coffee sipped from the depth of a sofa in the upper level coffee lounge - it can be difficult to choose!



The tents and main buidling are all have ramped access, but there is no specific adaptations in the tents.  Plastic chairs can be provided for use in the shower and staff are always on hand to help as needed.  Getting down to the boats may require some assistance as the path is steep with steps.
