Impala Camp is located about one hour's pleasant game drive from Mtemere Airstrip, in the eastern side of the Selous Game Reserve, north of the Rufiji Rver.
Impala camp is one of the smallest in the Selous with only 8 tents discreetly spaced apart. They are well camouflaged and overlook the river or a lagoon.
The eight luxury tents set on high wooden decking with magnificent views of the river and of the forest beyond, melt into the background, becoming part of their surroundings so that animals wander freely through the camp.
The tents are spread over a large area, ensuring maximum privacy. Each tent has a spacious veranda with chairs and table. The tents look out either over the Rufiji itself, or over a lagoon. Here hippos and birds have their habitats.
In each tent here is a floor fan to cool the tent and generators supply power for most of the day. When they are turned off, battery inverters in each tent ensure a continued supply of electricity.
There are two family, the remainder are double or twin tents.
The Lodge area overlooks the river and is a large and comfortable thatched low-slung building with wide verandahs. This open plan area has a well stocked bar, dining room and lounge with plenty of planters' chairs and sofas so that you can sit and scan the river and banks for game, drink in hand.
Breakfast is a good start to the day, with plenty of fresh fruit, chef baked rolls, muesli and a full English breakfast if you want it! The Italian coffee machine guarantees you fresh Tanzanian coffee - some of the best in the world!
The Bar, overlooking the river, is reached by a walkway. There is a raised fireplace area near the bar and restaurant, where you can enjoy a sundowner in the evening. And evening dining is on the veranda - romantic under the moon and stars...
The lodge has a sheltered, crystal clear blue swimming pool which overlooks the Rufiji River - ideal after returning from a game drive in the heat of the day.
It lies between two beautiful lakes - Mzizimia and Siwandu - which attract a rich variety of game, both in the wet months of November, March and June, and in the dry seasons.
You will be escorted to your tent by Masaai askaris, who will watch you day and night, as animals do wander freely through the camp.
