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, typically considered the best months for game-viewing as the wildlife is more concentrated around water sources and the grass is grazed and trampled down. Selous and southern Tanzania is typically hot and humid from December to May, without a dry period to break up the rains, so travel is not recommended during the British winter months.

Kiba Point is a small and intimate private camp in the Selous on the banks of the Rufiji river. This authentic safari camp, run by Nomad Tanzania, offers a real bush experience and thrilling adventure for up to eight guests on an exclusive basis.
This private camp in the Selous benefits from being located not just in a wonderful game-rich area but also in one of the most beautiful locations imaginable. The four open-fronted stone cottages are raised to take full advantage of the river views and guests will love the excitement of sleeping in such close proximity to nature whilst being completely safe. Each of the four cottages has its own plunge pool on the room's veranda so in the heat of the day you can either cool off and relax there or use the swimming pool in the main mess area. The en-suite bathrooms are all fully equipped with everything you could wish for...hot and cold running water, indoor and outdoor showers and flush toilets.
For groups or families this exclusive camp is absolutely perfect, giving you your own safari experience where you can do game drives as and when you wish and spend the days however you please. All your activities will be totally exclusive, just you and your guide! As well as game drives you will have the option to go on thrilling safari walks, or hop into a boat and spend the days on the river, drifting silently down stream watching the game on the river banks. Another great way to see game is to relax on a sand bank in Stigler's Gorge, enjoying breakfast, fishing, or simply relaxing in the shade of the palm trees watching the action on the lake shore. Of course the most exciting of all the activities is the fly camping. Sleeping on a sand bank with just a mosquito net between you and the wild can be an incredible experience, really making you feel like you're a part of this huge African wilderness.
