    On safari with Siwandu in Nyerere National Park, Tanzania

Siwandu Camp is on the banks of Lake Nzerakera in Tanzania's Nyerere National Park (formerly Selous). The main camp has 13 tents and several communal areas and is divided into north camp (7 tents) and south camp (6 tents). A little distance away there's an exclusive private camp. The camps are unfenced so animals are free to wander through and you can view wildlife without having to leave your tent!

The tents are large and luxurious, set on raised wooden platforms with thatched roofs. They have double beds, ceiling fans, bedside tables, lamps, a writing desk and sofa. The en-suite bathrooms are spacious and have twin hand basins and flush toilets. There is a separate shower area open to the skies. Between activities, you can sit on your private veranda and enjoy the views. The main camp has a large thatched lounge, bar and dining area, where you will enjoy delicious, freshly-cooked meals. There is a swimming pool for that cooling dip and a sundeck. Towels and sun loungers are provided.

Siwandu offers a variety of ways to view the diverse wildlife and habitats of Nyerere National Park. Traditional game drives in open vehicles operate in the mornings and early evenings. Boat trips on the river offer a different perspective and a chance to view hippos and crocodiles and numerous water birds. Guided game walks are a great way to get close to nature, to observe the small species often overlooked from vehicles, learn about medicinal uses of plants and find out about tracking skills.
