With a prime location amid the renowned Selous, game drives from the camp are nothing short of spectacular. Head out on the open-sided vehicles, complete with a shaded roof and plugs for keeping your cameras charged and your drinks cool, alongside the camp’s expert guides. Unforgettable animal sightings may include lion, leopard, elephant, giraffe and much more, while the reserve is home to one of Africa’s largest populations of wild dog. To immerse yourself even further into the rugged environment, why not head out on a walking safari, tracking prints on foot and experiencing the intricate workings of the area.
