About This Accommodation

Situated within the Selous Game Reserve (the largest reserve in Africa!), Siwandu is a beautiful camp positioned under palm trees on the shores of Lake Nzerakera. Siwandu offers superb game-viewing throughout the remote Selous area. Game drives and walks in addition to river cruises are some of the ways you can experience the majestic scenery and diverse wildlife in this reserve. Siwandu offers a quality game experience wrapped up in comfort and style.

This is a remote camp offering all the comforts of home. With bush breakfasts along the water’s edge, sundowners on the barge, or open-air dining in the camp, comfort and relaxation are guaranteed. 13 spacious, canvas tents are divided into 2 camps – North Camp and South Camp – each with their own lounge, dining area, swimming pool, and jetty. If you’re looking for the ultimate in exclusivity, you can book one of these camps exclusively (8-26 people). Each tent has its own deck with magnificent views, open air showers, and beautifully decorated bedrooms.

Although a year-round destination, April and May draw heavy rains. Siwandu is a great option in the Selous and it is cheaper than Sand Rivers Selous.
