    Semi-rugged Safari Experience
    Africa Safari Camp gives you the full safari experience. Don’t expect a 5-star hotel with A/C and perfect amenities. That said, it was an excellent stay. The safaris that were arranged by the camp were great, with a shout out to our guides Innocent and Manaynu, who took us around Selous Game Reserve for 6-7 hours on 2 different days. We saw almost all the animals we were looking for and more. The other activities available at the Camp were a Bush Walk, a Village Tour and a Boat Safari, all lasting about 90 minutes each, and each worthwhile, just to have some different experiences. One main issue we had regarding the planning was that the company that owns the camp could not give us definitive times of our short flights to/from the camp. Thus, after a long flight to Tanzania, we were left wondering if/when we would catch the 25-minute flight to the camp. We found out our flight time 1 day before we arrived. Back to the Camp, I think they could do a few small things to make life in the Bush slightly more comfortable. For example, in their small shop, the one and only snack they carry is Pringles. It would be nice if they had at least one type of diet soda in the bar. The screening in the units especially around the bathroom had some holes and let in bugs, which we fixed with some duct tape we happen to be carrying. The pool was nice, but had very slippery steps and should have some of that sand-paper tape on them for safety.

    Rustic charm near Selous Park Gate
    This is a rustic and basic establishment, that provides all that you need. It is not pretentious at all, what you see is what you get. It succeeds in creating a bush experience. However, the greatest asset of this establishment is its people. Friendly, service and client orientated and willing to go the extra mile.
