Selous Serena Camp

Situated on the Zema River are 12 luxury tents each with crystal chandeliers, opulent rugs and elegant furniture.

Game and bird viewing in the area is spectacular, particularly as the intricate waterways and tributaries of the Rufiji River Delta attract a great number of elephant, hippo, plains game and more than 440 species of bird. A wide selection of game viewing opportunities is available in this vast and untouched wilderness.

Our Thoughts

In the largest game reserve in Africa, guests staying here will struggle to see any other visitors when on a game drive, bush walk or river cruise. The luxury tents are very opulent and when staying here request a trip to the local hot springs followed by a sandbank picnic – a nice alternative to the ‘standard’ game drive.

The camp has a separate dining area and guest lounge overlooking the natural watering hole which is also lit in the evenings for night viewings. This is all complemented by an outside viewing deck and swimming pool.

The camp comprises of 12 well appointed tents positioned under individually grass-thatched structures, luxuriously furnished with adjoining colonial bathrooms. All the tents are well positioned to offer optimum game viewing as well as privacy and exclusivity. All the tents are set on a wooden deck under a thatch covering.
