Travellers' Choice
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.

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.

Absolutely one of the best safari camp.Our first night was spent with a 7 lion pride in our backyard. Don't worry - the resident Masai Warrior guards with spears they know how to use keep you safe after dark. A must stop with a staff that takes care of everything that you can’t think of. Holly is the perfect hostess with a fascinating background and sharing meals with the guides, Indrissa and Godlisten, gives you more opportunity to learn about them, their country and the wildlife. You are made to feel like family. In fact, because we were the only ones there for three days, we were treated like royal family! And “No! It was never boring or too quiet.” It was a privilege. The rustic bandas are very large with huge beds warmed by hot water bottles and hippo serenades at night, sofas and chairs, a day bed and a plunge pool all look out over a cleared area and the trees near the river. Tea and coffee and biscuits arrive at dawn. We watched a bull elephant, a lion mother with cubs and impala without leaving bed! At the waterhole you can observe huge hippo, a pride of lions, water buffalo, baboons all come to drink while you eat dinner. The food is beyond superb! Who expects lobster thermador in the middle of the Selous? The Masai dinner served in a special location was delightful as were the guides’ recounts of their time in boarding school. Meeting the chef and his staff so we could thank them topped it off. Finding wildlife in the Selous requires an educated guide because of the immense area of the private reserve and Beho Beho’s are the best. The fact that the reserve is private means you rarely see another vehicle and the guides don't call to each other unless a sighting is particularly rare or unusual. Wild dog, albino lion cub, elephant teaching their babies to find water under the dry sand river beds, giraffe, water buffalo, hyena, leopards, and the trip to Lake Tagalala is an experience you must have. Huge crocodile every ten feet, fleets of hippo watching you go by twenty feet away, including an albino hippo, and birds from heaven. Tell Indrissa and Godlisten we miss them and Sheila is still blushing from the "Gotcha!" you accomplished accomplished on Lake Tagalala with the "someone pitched a tent' and "Look! They're having a party!" and, "We can't just show up!"
