In tradition with the sort of equipment that Frederick Courtenay Selous himself might have used, the 8 luxury safari tents are the real thing at this Tanzania lodge on the Rufiji River in Selous Game Reserve.
But inside it's another matter - built on sturdy hardwood platforms raised to catch the breeze, Selous Impala Camp offers traditional Tanzania safari accommodation with a writing desk, leather-bound game books, comfortable spacious beds, dressing room, shower, flush toilet and twin porcelain basins included at this Tanzania lodge on the Rufiji River.
Each luxury tent at Selous Impala Camp has a spacious verandah looking out over the river and it is normal to hear snorting Hippos frisking in the water during the night.
Two of the eight safari tents are ideal for families traveling with children. Each of the family tents have 2 separate tents on the same deck, each with its own bathroom.
The main bedrooms in the family tents each have a double bed, en-suite bathroom with dressing room, a safari desk and a floor fan. The children's tent has twin beds, a wardrobe with shelves and a safari desk.
Selous Impala Camp is overlooking the Rufiji River, where the guests dine or sit and relax in the day, perhaps enjoying a book from the library or a drink from the bar.
