The lodge is located in the Selous Game Reserve in the south of Tanzania and is easily reached by light aircraft from Dar es Salaam, just a 45 minute flight. The camp is located further west than the other properties in the reserve in a slightly quieter area, with direct access to boating safari up to Steiglers Gorge as well as walking safari from the camp. The camp is positioned on the banks of the river under the shade of trees.
The main area of the lodge is raised, with fantastic views down onto the river here there’s plenty of hippo and other game activity. The main area is open faced with thatched roof and stone floors, a communal pool off to the side and plenty of areas to relax in the afternoon.
