Selous Kulinda Camp


This intimate thatched camp sits amid dense forest on the banks of the Rufiji River.

Nestled on the banks of the Rufiji River, the Selous Kulinda Camp’s focal point is its large thatched dining area and deck overlooking the river. The food here is impressive and the riverside tables are perfectly placed to try and spot the hippo and crocodile that inhabit the waters, as well as various birdlife.

The camp lies just outside of the Selous but most of its activities take place inside the northern part of the reserve, with a choice of morning and afternoon shared activities such as game drives in open-sided 4x4 vehicles in the remote bushland, game viewing by boat and walking safaris. The service at the camp is excellent, with welcoming managers who know all about personalised service, attentive waiters and knowledgeable drivers and guides.

Spacious canvas tents are set under a thatched roof on a raised platform, with a private deck and a wooden front door. All overlook the river, are traditionally furnished and have charge points for cameras and phones. Four Deluxe Tents at the far end of the camp even have their very own private plunge pool on the deck for a touch of safari luxury.
