We have been on Safari before at Londolozi in South Africa. It was a fabulous experience, so when we were planning this holiday, I was worried, could it compare. In fact, it didn't. South Africa and East Africa are very different. Both fantastic! I love the vastness of East Africa. There is a "rawness" and openness that I didn't' feel in South Africa. On our first morning we came around a bend to see a herd of impalas on our right and zebras and giraffes on our left and open space for as far as you could see. Our guide waved his arms wide and said, "This is East Africa!" I like it.

What really made Beho Beho stand out, is the extraordinary personal attention. The staff gave the impression they had been waiting on your arrival all year and were so glad you had finally made it! They were charming, interested, entertaining....amazing! The guides are incredibly knowledgable - everything from the most humble dung beetle to largest mammal. The safaris are diversified with boat trips and walking safaris in addition to game drives. The food was excellent! Every meal is served in community and there is a kind of "happy hour" before dinner. It didn't feel forced, it felt like a party with new friends, by the end of the week they felt like old friends.

I was constantly surprised by the way the team brought luxury to the middle of no where!

LOVED IT!

We have always dreamed of going on safari, and while I have nothing to compare it to, this was the experience of a lifetime. The views are absolutely spectacular. But best of all were the guides who were very knowledgeable, and really made the trip for us.

I must also put a plug in for Nick French of the Tanzania specialist, who sorted the trip out for us, and went above and beyond the call of duty.

Beho Beho is situated in the Selous Game Reserve and is reached from Dar es Salaam with a forty minute flight. The lodge is a five minute drive from the airstrip. This is an intimate lodge with first class accommodation. There are eight very large well appointed bandas with open fronts from which there are spectacular views. The lounge and dining area is very well appointed with a well stocked bar and a billiard table. The staff are most attentive to all needs. There are internet facilities. There is a swimming pool.
Game drives are excellent both in the evening and morning. One particularly good point is the chance to go for long bush walks with an expert guide. Bird viewing is good, particularly the bee-eaters which fly round the land cruisers.
The food is of a very high standard and an interesting feature is that guests are seated by the staff so this offers the chance to meet and make conversation with fellow guests. Each evening dinner is served at a different location which also is fun particularly when served outwith the camp area. There is the chance to spend a night in the bush and while we did not do this we wished that we had as those returning reported a unique experience. Another experience was the boating safari on lake Tagalala where the crocodiles were amazing.
This is a camp which we would very much like to experience again.

Room Tip: All are the same.

Beho Beho is quite superb. Accomodation,guides, food, location, and hosts. This is pure luxury in the bush. The walking safaris give such a close insight into nature and the guides are so knowledgeable in all all areas whether birds, animals, flowers, trees or insects. The attentive care of the staff made it feel like a house party, and the meals - all in different locations - were wonderful experiences. Even when nature intervened at the last minute with a rainstorm events were quickly and smoothly transferred to a different location. We would love to go back

Room Tip: No 9 has a bath apparently although we did not see it

We have just returned from a family 'trip of a lifetime' at Beho Beho. Not only is it situated in the most amazing park packed full of game but our experience at Beho Beho was faultless. The rooms are stunning with open vista so that you feel part of the bush. We loved the open air shower. Whilst Beho Beho is an amazing place to stay it is the staff and the attention to detail that sets it apart. The food was too delicious and every meal was set in a different location to keep an element of surprise every day. The rangers were experts in their field and couldn't do enough for you. We particularly enjoyed the walking safaris and the lake safari which we had never done before. I can honestly say that if you choose to stay at Beho Beho you will have an unforgettable experience.

We just spent a Fantastic Christmas at Beho Beho.
Highly recommended for those who have already seen the Big 5 and particularly want a real wilderness experience in true luxury. Great place to see Wild dogs and we saw them twice, once the pack of 21 were preparing to hunt. We saw lions and a leopard as well as loads of plains game. The Guided walks we did with Ian were great and FINALLY we saw our first Honey badger as well as encountering many elephants.
Overall a very memorable Christmas with FANTASTIC food, staff, rooms and game viewing.

Room Tip: Room 5 has a bath and is an end room!

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.
