  • Feel your adrenaline rush as you spot the elusive wild dog as they race through the trees hunting in the golden light on your morning game drive.

  • Listen to the owls hoot and distant hyena whoop as you dine under the blazing African stars on Selous Kulinda’s riverside deck.

  • Discover the bush from a new perspective on a walking safari, where even the lowly termite can shape the ecosystem.

Best time to Visit

Average time to visit

Tanzania is a large country, with a varied climate. Generally, the long rains run from March to May - the temperature is warm and the humidity is high. June to October is the long dry season, and the short rains are in November and December, much lighter than the long rains. January and February are again dry (the short dry season) so this is another good time to visit.

Selous Kulinda Camp is a fantastic tented safari camp on the banks of the Rufiji river just outside of the Selous Game Reserve. Selous Kulinda Camps proximity to the river means breathtaking views of the wildlife, best enjoyed with a sundowner in hand.

Hidden amongst dense forest on the banks of the Rufiji River, Selous Kulinda Camp (Selous Riverside Safari Camp) has lovely views over the Rufiji. Situated 15 minutes drive from the Selous Game Reserve, the camp consists of fourteen spacious and romantic tented chalets, carefully placed to blend into nature, all with en-suite facilities (with hot and cold running water), comfortable beds and a private veranda where you can watch the comings and goings of hippo and crocodiles in the river while the nervous game try to steal a drink. The five deluxe tents come with a private plunge pool.

The main lodge has a relaxed bar and dining area with comfortable safari chairs, and a great outside deck with an inviting pool, just made for chilling out and surveying the quintessentially African scene. Dinners can be served under the stars, on the deck or in the covered dining area. The staff are tremendously helpful and friendly.

Adventures and activities available at Selous Kulinda Camp include game drives in open 4WD vehicles, boat safaris on the Rufiji River and (being located just outside the Selous) guided walking safaris through the magnificent scenery conducted by experienced guides.
