The lodge is spread out along the banks of the wide Rufiji River in a remote section of the utterly massive Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania. Being the first lodge to be built in the area they had the privilege of choosing a truly special location in this vast wilderness.

Eight open-fronted river frontage cottages on raised concrete platforms are spread out along the river. Five of which are standard rooms and the other three are hillside suites. They all have stunning views out over the river with en-suite bathrooms, flushing toilets and hot and cold running water showers. The hillside suites have the addition of a lounge and private plunge pool.

The location is prime and offers a great diversity in activities such as: game drives in open safari vehicles, walking safaris with armed guides, boating, fishing, picnics and swimming in nearby hot springs.

One of the greatest experiences on offer is to include a night or two of fly-camping. Guests normally walk to a simple yet comfortable fly-camp setup where they are accommodated in insect proof mosquito netting with thick bedrolls and crisp linen. Read more on fly-camping here.
