Rufiji River Camp is located on the banks of the Rufiji River, in a point where the ample and tranquil river is animated by many and different species of animals. There is a constant flow of animals coming down to drink at the river offering a permanent show to visitors of the camp. The water is usually full of hundreds of hippos as well as groups of crocodiles that laze in the sun on the sandbanks in the river.
Game drives are accompanied by highly experienced rangers, who are experts of the Selous Game Reserve (now renamed Nyerere National Park) and its animal behaviors.
The game viewing here is some of the best - the reserve is home to over 800,000 mammals, including lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, buffalos, zebras, impalas, gnus, hartebeests, waterbucks, giraffes, kudus, warthogs, grysbok, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, bush babies, baboons, vervet monkeys and mongooses. At least 440 bird species are documented residents of the reserve
Boat safaris can also be arranged, and you can venture into a multitude of destinations, ranging from the main course of the river to the many lateral canals and various lakes. Fishing is also available but must be booked and paid for at the camp when you arrive.
Twenty en-suite tents face the sunset. Each tent has a private veranda under a roof of local straw (makuti) that creates the perfect place for reading, writing or just resting in the shade.
A structure in the central part of the camp hosts the restaurant, bar and library, all with a view of the river and the sunset. Electricity and hot water are powered by solar panel. A covered swimming pool is situated in the camp, between reception and mess area.
