Siwandu is a luxury tented camp located on the banks of Lake Nzerakera in Tanzania’s vast Selous Game Reserve, the largest protected wilderness reserve on the continent.
The tented rooms are set on raised timber platforms and spread along the lake shore. The tents are designed to maximise views and breeze, and have en-suite bathrooms, open-air showers and two verandas to the front and rear. The central part of the camp includes a swimming pool, dining area and a bar on a raised viewing platform.
Around the camp, a landscape of river channels and lake systems attracts a huge diversity of wildlife, from lion, buffalo and hippo to more than 300 bird species.
Activities include early morning and evening game drives, boat safaris and fishing on the Rufiji River, and walking safaris with overnight fly-camping, all accompanied by expert guides.
The area is home to one of the few remaining wild dog populations in Africa.
