Selous Game Reserve

ACCOMODATION: Beho Beho offers superb accommodation in 8 individual, very spacious Bandas, (stone built and palm thatched cottages) furnished with king-sized beds, Zanzibari day beds, writing desks and comfortable 'suite' furniture. The front of the banda is totally open and extends on to a spacious verandah. The banda can be secured for the night with 'tented curtains' or left open as desired. Each banda has a separate dressing room leading into an en-suite bathroom with twin basins, high flush toilet and an 'open air' shower. 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 huge palm thatched roof there is also a full sized billiards table, the Eagle's nest for private dining and lots of cosy nooks. Meals are a moveable feast at this facility and are not confined to the formal dining area. LOCATION: Beho Beho is situated in the Selous Game Reserve and is accessible by train, road and plane. Charters can be taken as well since Beho Beho has its own airstrip. Beho Beho in the Selous Game Reserve is known as 'wansalishi' which means 'the pioneer' when translated from the Swahili. 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. It is 145 miles south west of Dar es Salaam, as the crow flies, the camp is 3 miles from the grave of Frederick Courteney Selous. ACTIVITIES: The Beho Beho Experience: In order to enjoy the Beho Beho experience to the full it is recommended that guests stay for a minimum of 3 nights. Game Drive: These are in special adapted 4 wheel drive vehicles which offer raised seating for better game viewing. Game drives are best taken early in the morning or at dusk. Walking: The wilderness of Tanzania will be yours as you walk through the bush in the vicinity of Beho Beho. Many different tracks can be followed with either a circular walk returning to the camp or a pre-arranged location can be made for you to be collected by a safari vehicle. Lake Tagalala and Maji Moto: After a short Tanzania safari game drive you will arrive at Lake Tagalala for your Tanzania boating safari. The lake is surrounded by a number of natural springs which attracts amazing birdlife as well as a large Hippo and Crocodile population. After a bush breakfast a short walk takes you to the hot sulphur springs, Maji Moto where you swim in the deep natural pools before returning to Beho Beho. Safaris: Safaris in the Selous Game Reserve must be accompanied by an armed game Scout.
