Set amidst dense indigenous forests the Selous Serena Camp is the ultimate wilderness retreat. Vast, pristine and largely undiscovered, the spectacular Selous Game Reserve is a World Heritage Site and the largest expanse of game reserve in Africa. Covering 55,000 square kilometres of rolling savannah, lakes, rivers and deltas, it is four times the size of the Serengeti and larger than the entire nation of Switzerland. Home to the largest concentrations of elephants in the world, this unique wildlife arena also boasts some of the most exclusive and pioneering boating safaris that Africa has to offer.
This boutique luxury tented camp is situated on the Zema River, a tributary of the Rufiji River in Tanzania’s vast Selous Game Reserve. It offers guests a wildlife experience that is difficult to find anywhere else in Africa, and a level of comfort comparable to the best in Africa.
The Selous National Reserve, is a 45 minute flight from Dar es Salaam International Airport. A meet and greet service is offered from Stiegler's Airstrip, which is just a half-hour's game drive away from the camp.
