About Beho Beho
Beho Beho is known as 'wansalishi' which means when translated from the Swahili 'the pioneer'. The first camp in the Northern sector of the Selous Game Reserve, its stone cottages, perched on the lower slopes of Namikwera Hill overlooking Kipalala Hill, offer panoramic views over the Rufiji river flood plain. 145 miles south west of Dar es Salaam, as the crow flies, the camp is 3 miles from the grave of Frederick Courteney Selous.
How to get there
We will assist you with all necessary internal transfers after booking.
From Dar es Salaam, Beho Beho airstrip is within 1km from the camp on a raised plateau bordered with trenches from the first World War. The flight time is approximately 1 hour
Beho Beho is accessible by road with 4WD vehicles only, from either the northern gate and regional park HQ of Matambwe (70kms - 2 hrs) or the western gate of Mtemere (110 km - 3 hours)
By scheduled train you can reach Beho Beho from Fuga station, which is a 1½ hour game drive through the plains and dry rivers found in the area. The train takes 4/5 hours along the Tazara railway line, which is the Northern boundary to the Selous.
NB. All prices and times are subject to change.
When to go
Beho Beho has its own generator supply giving 240v 50hz electricity. There are lights and power points in each banda offering electricity for recharging computer, video or cine camera batteries. They use standard three pin plugs with square pins as in the UK.
Water is supplied from a bore hole and is pumped up to tanks above the camp. Guests are advised not to drink the water from the tap and bottled water is supplied for guests during their stay at Beho Beho.
There are solar panels located outside each banda, which provide sufficient hot water for showers in the morning and the evening. Most days are usually sunny and hot so there is no problem having a hot shower in the daytime - but if too much water is run off in the late afternoon it may not be hot the following morning.
Travelling with children
Children aged 12 and older are allowed to stay at the camp.
