It is located about one hour’s pleasant game drive from Mtemere Airstrip, in the eastern side of the photographic area of Selous Game Reserve, north of the Rufiji Rver.
The camp overlooks the rippling Rufiji River, sheltering under Borassus palms and Tamarind trees and provides superb comfort, wonderful wildife and dining under the stars. Impala Camp was set up by old East Africa hand Gillie Zanacchi and his wife Tessa as a retreat where they could take their friends to enjoy the animals and the bush. It soon became obvious they would have to share!
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.
Impala camp is one of the smallest in the Selous, with only 8 tents.
- Swimming pool overlooking the river
