Our host was friendly and professional and the amenities were clean. We were a group of friends and were laughing and predicting about how much worse it were getting as the weekend progressed. If single army beds, a cold water shower ( "sorry we experience water problems from time to time"), an empty portable plastic pool, a untrained hungry game ranger (he polished all our snacks), basic meals and no attention to detail is your scene, then Selous Bush Camp in Mankwe Game reserve is the place for you. The tents were torn and the pathways and tents too sparingly lit. Our husbands were in their elements, because it reminded them of doing border duty in Namibia.
