Description
This award-winning lodge, located on the border of the Selous Game Reserve, with dramatic views of the beautiful Rufiji River, is the most highly-reviewed camp in the area and offers a range of thrilling More safaris including game drives, walking safaris and boat safaris. The camp has an intimate, friendly atmosphere where you can kick back and relax with an ice-cold drink beside the campfire, cool off in the riverbank swimming pool, or take in the epic view of the sun setting over the river. Choose your accommodation and spend the night in a comfortable "Mudhut" room located overlooking the river, or for a more wild experience, sleep under canvas in a spacious - but simple - glamping tent. Enjoy delicious meals, served in the riverbank restaurant. Set out on safari in the Selous with an experienced guide and discover wildlife from the comfort of a open-sided 4x4 car, explore the river or lakes by boat, or go for a gentle stroll on a walking safari.

I stayed twice at SRC, both time camping with my own gear. The camping area is perfect and very good value for money with clean showers and security. Blue and colobus monkeys in the trees around, a genet cat and bush babies visiting at night. Friendly and efficient staff and mana

We spent altogether 7 days in Mikumi-Selous area, the 2 last nights in this very nice lodge, it is the first one on the river bank outside Selous Mtemere gate. Two important points as to the location: by far the most game is found at the eastern end of Selous, so being close the

Hi, is it possible to book direct with the River Camp? If not, what tour operator did you use please? I can't seem to find a mention of the Sealous River Camp in the tour operator sites that are mentioned on their website. Also does anyone know how far apart the tents are from the mudhuts, as I would like the tent option but want to be near the river etc.? Regards Jane Davies
Hello Jane, sorry that this was left unanswered. We don't get informed of new questions here and weren't aware that you'd asked! In case anyone in future asks the same question, yes it is possible to book directly with us. The email address can be found on our website. We aren't allowed to advertise here... I'm not sure if that includes posting suggestions for tour operators. The tents are around 70-80 metres from the riverbank, but with the camp located in a woodland area, that does mean that you can't see the river from the tents due to the trees blocking the way. The bar and dining area are both completely open-sided and are located on the riverbank though, and the bar has a lot of comfy seating and great views, so most people who want to be by the river tend to spend a lot of their time relaxing in the bar.

Hallo Rahel, was verpassen wir, wenn wir statt in einer Mudhut in einem Zelt übernachten? Gibt es am Fluss viel Wildtiere am Morgen / Abend zu beobachten, die ich vom Zelt aus verpasse? Danke für ein Antwort. Viel Grüße Reisefreak
desidero una proposta all inclusive per un soggiorno tra il 28 (in ) ed il 31 dicembre 2017 (out)
Hello Sergio, Sorry for the late reply - we don't get informed of new questions here. We're also not allowed by TripAdvisor to advertise, post links or contact information... Please send us an email and we will be happy to help!

Bonjour, Est ce que ce lodge dispose de Wifi ou d'internet pour les clients? Merci de vos infos.
Hello Saint-Germain-de-Joux, Sorry that this was unanswered. We don't get informed of new questions here and weren't aware that you had asked anything. In case someone else is looking for the same information, at the time of writing (August 2017) the camp doesn't have wifi. It's something we're currently looking into though, as there does seem to be a demand for it (bit of a controversial issue actually! Some guests are strongly opposed to it!). Being in the bush it's going to have to be satellite internet, and we're looking at options. Once we are connected we'll update our website and post on our facebook page.
