The apartment is a special design, split up into a large balcony with a magnificent view over the Rufiji River, a living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
In the “New” Camp there will be a total of eight cottage rooms, as well as four apartments.
Construction of the camp was commenced on the 31st of January 2000 by its owners & seven Tanzanian staff.
Owners of the camp & their staff have been operating smaller fly- camps within the Selous Game Reserve & Southern Tanzania since 1997. But have been involved within the Selous Game Reserve since 1994.
The aim is to provide the exotic African atmosphere, offering mainly small camps at locations that truly function as an exciting adventure tourist destination. Continuing with the tradition of the old "Hunter Camps" of the past in the new role of "Photographic Hunting".
