We stayed at Rufiji river camp for 4 days and had a wonderful time. The staff was super friendly, food was amazing especially considering the secluded area we were in. Very pleasant evenings overlooking the rufiji river and watching the sun go down. Rooms were both spatious and quite luxurious, and did not at all feel like tents. Bathrooms very stylish and clean. Contrary to reviews we had read, there was a safe available in the room. As to be expected out in the bush, there was no internet available, which was actually a very pleasant experience and helped relax and detach from work life even more. The day tours were extraordinarily exciting, guides experienced and knowladgable, amazing up-close wild life experience- thank you!

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Rufiji River Camp. The Nelson and David my Guide and Driver were fantastic. The food was great and the manager Peta was most attentive and helpful. I saw a huge number of animals. Being a solo traveler I felt very secure comfortable and well cared for during my whole stay . I would definitely go again.

We spent there 5 nights and even if we have gone in many lodges in many places in africa it was the best lodge where we stayed. A very nice welcoming by the woman manager and all the staff was efficient and friendly ,perfect all along the stay . The place is also wonderfull above the river and also the tents wery confortable.
Food and service was nice and we apreciate the diversity of game drives full day or not, by boat or vehicule. The guides were very competent and friendly always trying to do their best particularly our guide jimson and the driver katerin (?)
Thank you for this stay

This was the first stay for our honeymoon and we really enjoyed the experience. The camp was small and relaxing with a little swimming pool. The bar, restaurant and food were good, with a great view over the river where you would see hundreds of hippos, crocodiles and many types of birds. Our room was very nice, but I would recommend taking ear plugs if you are a light sleeper due to the many animals around the camp at night. What a wonderful experience and really good guiding throughout the game reserve of Selous.

Beautifully located with a great view of the river and plentiful wildlife. The luxury tents are spacious and very comfortable, meals very good and staff pleasant and friendly. River, land and walking safaris were all amazing and informative with very knowledgeable and humorous guides. Our thanks to Peta and her wonderful team for such a great stay in Rufiji.
