Beho Beho Camp hotel

No image
Beho Beho camp was the first camp to be sited in The Selous Game Reserve. Owned by the Bailey family for over forty years, it is situated in the cooler highlands, a considerable distance from the flood plains of the mighty Rufiji River. This means less mosquitoes and more cool breezes. Its name is means 'cooling breeze' in the native language. Always designated as a 'private camp' it has fiercely protected its individuality and privileged location as one of the most 'magical' places it is possible to visit in safari Africa. The camp features individual bandas or stone built, palm-leaf thatched cottages, rather than the tented accommodation one might more readily associate with a camp. There are eight bandas at the camp, four on one side of the main house and four on the other.

The rooms The camp features three types of accommodation, the standard bandas(8 in total), the more private bailey's banda(1 only) and the tree house. Banda being a Swahili term for a shack, wooden house or structure. However, the banda's at Beho beho are far from a shack. Rather they are built out of local stone and palm leaf thatch to be a comfortable haven from which to enjoy the magnificent Selous Game reserve.

The standard banda Smaller than the Bailey's banda, these have been designed to capture even the slightest breeze. They feature strategically placed wide-blade ceiling fans (for when Africa gets to hot), a king-sized and mosquito netted double bed, a large dressing room, a security safe, huge comfy chairs, a Zanzibari style day bed, a proper writing bureau (with post cards supplied), 'Persian' carpets and even a tripod mounted telescope for private game spotting. The bathrooms have an open air shower with a view of the valley, a high flush W.C., twin wash hand basins and come equipped with Charlotte Rhys toiletries, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, and soaps as well as a hair drier and his and hers bathrobes.

The Bailey's banda The Bailey's Banda, is a private villa positioned on the hillside overlooking the main camp. Apart from most of what is found in the standard banda, it features two very spacious en suite bedrooms, one of them raised up on first floor level. Both rooms come with king-sized beds and the possibility to use the Zanzibari divan bed to create a twin bedded room. It also has a plunge pool and sunbathing/game viewing deck, giving stunning views of the the main camp, the valley, the hippo pools and in general - wild Africa at its very best. With more emphasis on privacy, the banda comes with dedicated staff, a private kitchen, an exclusive safari vehicle and tailor made game activities offered by some of the best guides in East Africa.

The tree houseThe Tree house is an optional extra available to all guests who stay for a minimum of four nights at the camp. Designed for a maximum of two people, this tree house is built partly inside and partly on a giant ancient lead wood tree overlooking a dry river bed. It facilities include a proper double bed with mosquito netting linen and duvets, an en-suite bathroom complete with flush toilet and African styled shower.
