Beho Beho

Beho Beho was the first camp to be sited in The Selous Game Reserve (now Nyerere National Park), not on the banks, or the flood plains of the mighty Rufiji River, but in the highlands so as to enjoy the cooling breezes from which its name derives.


The camp enjoys a privileged location higher up, away from the hotter, more humid river basin. The eight stone bandas with palm-thatched roofs provide comfortable accommodation with far-reaching views across the verdant forested hills and valleys surrounding the camp.

The relaxed but attentive hospitality and excellent food and drink all contribute to a perfect safari. Meals are frequent and delicious and taken together with your guides, with the chat often continuing long after the last dessert plate has been cleared, and usually moving to the fireplace, bar or billiards table.

The vegetation and cooler temperatures in the area in which Beho Beho sits make it popular with wildlife, so you don’t have to venture far before bumping into your neighbours.

The walking safaris here are second to none and there is a unique array of biodiversity to explore, from riverine forests, miombo woodlands and plains, to the fascinating lake regions of Tagalala and Mwanze.

Beho Beho also has a number of boats stationed at Lake Tagalala, about 50 minutes drive away from camp. This excursion, usually done in the morning, gives a close encounter with the resident hippo and crocodile as well as an amazing number of bird species, culminating in breakfast under a shady tree.
