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!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
