The Selous Safari Company is rebranding their flagship camp in the Selous Game Reserve to ‘Siwandu’

Selous Safari Company is marking its 25th year of delivering unique safari experiences and in celebration we are changing the name of Selous Safari Camp to Siwandu!

The name change brings the camp in line with the company’s other properties and will greatly help customers pinpoint the superb location of the camp in Africa’s largest game reserve. Siwandu is perfectly placed to take full advantage of the hordes of wild animals that roam the plains in search of water on the banks of Lake Nzerakera and Lake Siwandu.

Owner, Charles Dobie, says, “The renaming of our flagship camp in the Selous Game Reserve to Siwandu is part of our aim to offer distinctive, individual safari experiences in southern Tanzania. With us, guests can combine rich game viewing in the heart of the Selous with the untamed natural beauty of the Ruaha National Park where Siwandu’s sister camp, Jongomero, is located. All of which can be topped off with indulgent relaxation at Ras Kutani, our Indian Ocean hideaway making for the perfect beach and safari combination.”

Founded in 1988 by Charles Dobie who remains at the helm today, The Selous Safari Company is one of the oldest and most experienced safari operators in Tanzania and has seen its fair share of excitement over the years.

Commenting on the history, Charles says, “When I moved to Tanzania in 1985, I could not have foreseen the amazing journey we would go on. There was little road access to the Selous and we had to create the airstrip that brought in our supplies. Over the years the team has surmounted all Mother Nature had to offer from floods and tornados to lightning strikes and fires, but the trials have been outdone by the sheer joy of creating a sustainable enterprise that has played host to many thousands of travellers, from honeymooners to seasoned wildlife experts and first timers to royalty. Above all, The Selous Safari Company has been made great by the superb team that work with us, from camp managers to butlers, through to guides and chefs, each and everyone goes the extra mile for our guests.”
