The success of our camps ultimately comes down to our extensive and hands-on experience managing safaris. From the beginning the company has grown from the interests and talents of the family. Above all, each and every one of us just loves to be on safari and are passionate about protecting these wildernesses that we love so much.
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.
