Value
Beho Beho was the first camp to be sited in The Selous, not on the banks, or the flood plains of the mighty Rufiji River, but in the cooler highlands so as to enjoy the 'cooling breezes' from which its name derives. Always designated as a 'private camp' it has fiercely protected its individuality and privileged location as one of the most 'magical' places it is possible to visit in safari Africa.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A big shoutout ot Heribert and the crew, I had such a wonderful time for the four nights I spent with you. The guiding, both vehicle and walking, were superb. The food was amazing, and the way you set up dinner at a different location every night was magical. I will not soon forget the memories of hippos, elephants, and baboons crossing along the front of my banda. And, the sunsets and those stars at night...

Very much enjoyed 5 nights here. It’s not a place for first time safari-ers. The game drives allow you to go slowly and really enjoy watching all the animals - lions, hippos,zebras, elephants, wildebeest and giraffes. And the bird watching was spectacular. One huge advantage of the area is that you seldom see another truck so all the animal sightings are just you alone. But if you had never been on safari before you might feel that the sightings are a little sparse. The guides are all extremely knowledgable and able. The lodge suited me as the bandas are all open to the elements. There is a screen you can pull across at night but we preferred to leave everything open, giving an impression of really being in the bush, and sleeping under the mosquito nets. We did not get a single mosquito bite. We were told there is no malaria in the area. The food is really excellent, and there is certainly plenty of it. We had a couple of days of gray and wet weather so the water for showers, heated by solar power, was only tepid. Beho Beho is a very relaxing lodge, with high standards, and sitting on the deck of your banda watching elephants, giraffe or hippos wander past is unforgettable.

Beho Beho is one of the absolute best safari camps in all of the area! The accommodations were luxurious, the staff were amazing and the guides are very experienced. We saw an amazing variety of wildlife including 2 lion prides! I can’t recommend Beho Beho enough- it’s incredible.

An amazing 4 nights at Beho Beho (booked via Audley Travel). I don't know where to begin..... the welcome was wonderful as we arrived in camp and despite only the three of us being the only guests, we had quite a party. All the team went out of their way to make the trip fun and fabulous. The camp is beautiful, the Banda's are first class camp accommodation and so comfortable and not scary at all if you leave your front tent cover open. The food and drink was devine and no idea how they manage to serve up such delicious fresh food when they are 8 hours drive away from Dar and have one food delivery per week but it was very impressive. Nothing was too much trouble for the team and we left after 4 days with the feeling of having a new family, very sad to leave. The game drive trips were brilliant and our game drivers Herbert, Idrisa and Goddy were awesome and we definitely went on a lion hunt! The walking in the bush was incredible, a memory that will last forever. There were so many little extras and surprises, I won't mention them as I don't want to spoil it for future guests. Don't hesitate to book here, it was a trip of a lifetime (and we have done a safari before). Thanks to all the team, much love at Beho Beho.

I had the most amazing stay at Beho Beho on my first trip to Africa and my first Safari. And I travelled alone! The service and facilities were first class. I cannot praise the staff and guides highly enough. Thanks to Hari and the kitchen staff for the delicious catering and cocktails, and to my expert guides Saningo and Heribert. Every moment was special but the walking safari to the hippo pool was among one of many highlights. I have been telling everyone I know about Beho Beho. Thanks again to all the Beho team for a wonderful experience that I will treasure forever.

Beho Beho is a truly magical place and exceeded all our expectations. The team were incredibly welcoming and all of the staff made us feel like part of the Beho Beho family from the moment we landed at "Beho Beho International" (a short 5 minute drive from the main camp). We were lucky enough to stay in Bailey's Banda which is very spacious for a couple (the Banda can easily sleep 4 adults). The outdoor shower was a fun highlight, the amenities are all top notch (the swimming pool isn't heated, but that isn't necessary as you really need to cool off after the morning safari) and the luxury toiletries were akin to luxury products found in city hotels. A hairdryer is available if needed and wifi is available throughout the Banda. The food was delicious both in the Banda and on safari (prepare to eat a lot - the brilliant chefs prepare loads of food and have different themes for each evening) and we ate at a different location within the Banda grounds every night. The master bedroom was beautiful - the views were incredible from bed (and indeed from every room in the Banda) and we made sure our wake up call was early enough so that we could enjoy a coffee on the comfy sofas in the room. If you are brave enough and visit during dry season, we highly recommend leaving the fourth wall exposed (there are very robust mosi nets and the camp supply plenty of deet). The safari guides were very caring and knowledgeable and, unlike most other camps, it was a delight to have 3 different guides that rotated over the course of our stay. Each guide imparted their own interests and passions. Each guide will join you for a drink ahead of dinner, which really allowed us to get to know the guides and it was great to share the day's stories which encouraged some friendly competition between the guides! We were also joined by trainee guides in addition to the main guides, who were also really knowledgeable and great second spotters. We had a mix of walking, driving and boating safaris - all well organised, safe and full of excitement. The guides always parked at a beautiful spot for sundowners. We don't have any criticisms and wouldn't change a thing.

Late December 2019/early January 2020 we spent 4 days at Beho Beho with a family of 8. We all felt it was impressive from any perspective: location, people, wildlife, rooms and food. It feels as home with very passionate staff around you. Wildlife starts around the corner or even in front of the rooms. Next to the safari drives we took the safari walks twice. An amazing experience as well. Note that the view from the vehicle is clearly better but walking in between the animals is another experience. The guides are fantastic, very knowledgeable and constantly available for any questions one may have. The rooms are luxurious and very well maintained. Staff does everything to keep the rooms tight at any moment during the day. Diners are served in various places in the camp and enjoyed with all the guests (typically max around 14) and guides. The food and service are outstanding. Passion and care of all staff is really amazing. Connection is easy with a runway very close to the camp. Good wifi is available in the rooms but not in the joint area's: a place to talk to each other. A place to return to!

Beho Beho has truly exceeded all my expectations and delivered an experience you will hardly find anywhere else. The staff will go above and beyond to make your stay memorable. Everything is so well organized and every detail has been carefully thought about. The food is amazing and prepared with love. The bandas (cottages) will give the feeling like you’re in the middle of the reserve, it doesn’t get any more pure than this. Last but not least, the amazing, informative guides and the game drives are the highlight of the stay. Beho Beho and Selous is the most pure wildlife experience out there! Would never go to any of the big parks again.

Far from the crowds of the northern Serengeti lies Selous. Fantastic game reserve with a tiny handful of camps. Beho beho the camp we stayed in was fantastic with excellent guides. Huge number of giraffe but lions,buffalo hippo etc as well. Food was excellent here (if a little too much esp at lunch ). With brilliant staff in the camp. As the rains had started early the insect life at night was prolific but it just depends on the rains. The Bandas were excellent with their own plunge pool and a great sound of hippo at night from the hippo pool at the bottom of the hill. Walking safaris were an option too There was a mosquito net which you definitely had to be under due to the bugs at night. A fantastic experience with varied drives , a boat trip and a magical breakfast etc huge number of birds as well. The wooded terrain makes leopard spotting challenging but all round a great Tanzanian experience.

When we arrived at Beho Beho, it was lush and green owing to rain since the beginning of October. Because of the rain, we were lucky enough to see many impala babies which were very cute. We saw great numbers of wildlife -- zebras, giraffes, elephants, etc. Beho Beho is very laid back. We enjoyed dinners with our guides and the camp manager. For the 3 days we were there, I believe that we were the only guests. The guides are changed for each game drive and we enjoyed the expertise of Godlistens, Saning'o, Mike and Heribert. We had a boat safari to Lake Talagala where we saw crocodiles and hippos and many shore birds. There was a great breakfast brunch set up for us on one of the islands in the lake. The only thing that marred an otherwise wonderful adventure was the fact that the bandas are open in front. Even though a tent-like material can be drawn across the front, it still permitted insects to enter along the edges. It was impossible to enjoy the banda at night unless we were under the mosquito netting since all manner of insects came in once the lights were turned on. No one else has mentioned this in their reviews, but I am sure that other people had the same problem. Hopefully they will fix this in the future which would make this a beautiful 5 Star "Out of Africa" experience.
