After hearing such good things about Beho Beho, the camp and its team still managed to provide the most wonderful place that was beyond our expectations. We only wished we had longer then our 4 night stay in Beho Beho for the first leg of our honeymoon. The amazing bandas offer the highest level of design, space and furnishing, whilst the open veranda provides the most beautiful view of selous . We were even fortunate to have our own personal welcome outside our banda on arrival by an elephant.
The camp offers the most intimate, social and enjoyable safari experience which is led by Rita and Spike and the most charismatic Marita. The food is incredible and is paralled by the extremely high standard of service. We happened to mention Irish whiskey and the next day there was a bottle on the shelf!! The communal dining provides a wonderful social experience that has resulted in us meeting people that we hope to maintain contact with.
The Selous game reserve is very beautiful however it is not for the individual wanting to cram in seeing as many as animals as possible. The quietness of the game reserve in terms of being the one of a handful of cars out on a drive is a feature of its beauty. You will not have numerous cars behind or in front of you clamouring to see the same animals. The guides go wherever you want and are partial to the off road driving!! The guiding is of the highest standard and the relationship that ensues with the guide adds to the intimacy of the camp. The provision of walking safaris also offers rare experiences of animals and a plethora of interesting information about the reserve.
We have had some of the most memorable and magical experiences and adventures in Beho Beho and have promised ourselves that we will return for our 5th wedding anniversary. We can assue everybody that it is worth every penny and more!!!
- 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
