Selous Impala Fly Camping

Selous Impala Fly Camping, Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania

The term "fly camping" stems from the early days of hunting safaris where outings took the form of several successive nights on the trot in a different location each night. To make matters more practical each person would carry their own tent; consisting of a fly sheet and not much more. These days fly-camping provides the same intimate experience of sleeping out in the bush away from distractions, but on a slightly grander scale.

At Selous Impala fly camp, guests are provided with simple yet comfortable accommodation. The fly camp is prepared before guests leave Impala Camp by our fly camp team, in a location chosen on the shores of Lake Manze, arguably the most beautiful area in the Selous. As well as an armed ranger clients are accompanied by the fly camp team, which consists of two assistants.

One of the excellent chefs accompanies the expedition, providing a three course meal tailor made to the guests' wishes. Showering is done in true bush fashion with a bucket shower and the loo is comfortable — a true environmentally friendly piece of equipment; at the same time clean and hygienic.
