"Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running." - ABE GUBEGNA

Guest Reviews

During our stay in Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania we spent a few days in this beautiful camp. The tents were clean and comfortable. The staff at MbuyuSafari Camp was very friendly and helpful. Food and drinks were great! Perfect location!On the banks of the Rufiji with some magnificent game drives. If we ever have the chance to go back to Tanzania,  we definitely like to visit this accommodation again.

We are Tanzanian residents and have been looking for a camp to bring our friends and family. Mbuyu is the perfect base to explore Selous Game Reserve. This staff is competent and knowledgeable, eager to ensure every guest has an excellent experience. The restaurant keeps time, with meals always ready on-the-dot at the agreed upon time. The staff at Mbuyu are excellent! We will be back.

I just wanted to write and say "Thank you" for doing such a beautiful job of restoring Mbuyu Camp.  My son was 15 months old and my daughter was three years old when we went to manage the camp in 1991.   The memories of them running freely down the path between the tents, sitting quietly on the verandah as elephants ate Doum palm nuts from the trees along the water's edge just feet away, fishing along the river bank, and so much more, came flooding back as I looked at the images on your website.  There were three male elephants that made the area around the camp their own and I wonder if any of them might be the elephants in your photos.  I certainly hope so.  Again, thank you.
