  • Great Vista of the Rufiji

    Rufiji camp is quite well run. My lovely tent was on a platform with a screen door built in. The surrounding spacious deck is set up to enjoy the view. A comfortable bed with furniture inside along with a en suite bathroom. At mealtime they took good care of me including my special food needs. The staff was hard working and friendly. I highly recommend.

When to Visit

Selous Game Reserve is best visited between the months of June and February. The camp is seasonal and closes at the end of March through to the 1st June. The dry season is from June to end October November time and during this period the park dries up and the temperatures increase until the rains break. The rain is heavy but short lived with wonderful clear skies following a downpour. The river fills up and birdlife is supplemented by migrant species.
