Location: Selous Game Reserve

On the banks of the Rufiji River in the heart of Selous Game Reserve is the Rufiji River Camp – a luxury tented camp with just 20 tents, offering intimacy, seclusion and comfort in the heart of the wilderness.

Each tent at Rufiji River Camp faces west for the most stunning sunsets, which can be enjoyed from your private, makuti-covered veranda.  All tents boast comfortable beds, walled en suite bathroom facilities, mosquito netting and all the comfort you could desire.  

The restaurant, bar and library are all housed in a central structure of the camp, all with views of the river.  Animals often come to drink from the river’s waters, and hippos and crocodiles are regularly spotted lazing in the water or on the sandy banks.  There is a well-stocked bar and a range of international dishes on offer at meal times.  

Excursions and activities that can be arranged with Rufiji River Camp include; game drives, boating safaris on the river (a particular delight at sunset), fishing trips and walking safaris.

Reviews & Testimonials of Rufiji River Camp

"Wish we were there now"

luxurious we can still highly recommend it. It is now under new management and the food was excellent-the best on our trip. After a couple of initial false starts the service was excellent. A huge asset is Nick Greaves who organises all the excursions and is training the guides. He has lived in Africa for many years, is a mine of information and fascinating to talk to. We stayed in the older smaller tents-perfectly adequate but the whole camp is going through makeover. If these tents are brought up to the standard of the others we saw on site and indeed to the standards of the other Foxes accomadation we stayed in they will be worth 5 stars. We can highly recommend the boat trip (go in the morning-you see more wildlife) and the walking safari.

"fantastic"

This was our first time on safari and we loved it. The tent was fun, fine for what we needed. The new boss had taken over three days before and the food was incredidible. Our guides we great as were the masii. The pool was fab after a day in the bus .Great experience. Loved all the animals we saw
