Siwandu rests in the lake shores and is perfectly located to enjoy a range of wildlife. Spaced along the shoreline the superbly-appointed accommodation ensures maximum privacy to soak up the sights and sounds of Selous.
From either of the wooden-decked verandas watch the bush come to life or relax with a gin and tonic as she blushes under sunset. The 10 spacious tents of canvas and mosquito netting allows for constant air-flow and enables guests to gaze upon the animals as they saunter past.
Each suite has a majestic king-sized bed under the overhead fan and an open-air stargazer. Solar-heated showers adjoin the en suite bathrooms.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Selous’ riverine wilderness supports an extraordinary array of vegetation and animals. Due to the local topography around Siwandu the location is considered a prime position for superlative game viewing. Siwandu offers morning and evening game drives as well as walking safaris.
Selous has over 2,100 species of plants, in excess of 400 varieties of birds, more than half of Tanzania’s elephant population and over 120,000 buffalos. The Reserve’s 40,000 hippo and 4,000 lion are probably the largest populations on the continent. The parks also supports the planet’s largest population of rare wild dogs. This resplendence gives guests a rare opportunity to glimpse all of these animals in truly unspoilt landscape.
The elevated lounge and dining area offer views across the lake as you enjoy a drink from the bar or sample the excellent cuisine.
During the hotter parts of the day there is a shaded pool. The recliners are a perfect armchair safari.
