Located on the banks of the Rufiji River in Southern Tanzania’s Selous Game Reserve, the Kiba Point campsite absorbs the essence of Africa. The road from Dar es Salaam can be travelled by train or in a 4x4 vehicle due to the lengthy dirt road.
Recognized as Africa’s largest game reserve, Selous is admired for its abundance of elephants, buffalo, hippos and Nile crocodiles. The Rufiji River flows through the reserve into the Indian Ocean. The Selous has a variety of vegetation – from rocky surfaces to endless plains to hydrated marshes. Its tropical climate is the cause of warm and wet weather, with heavy rains expected between March and May.
By air: The camp can be reached via daily flights to the Kiba airstrip from Dar es Salaam, Ruaha, Zanzibar and northern Tanzania.
By road: Driving to the Selous Game Reserve from Dar es Salaam takes 7 hours and the use of a reliable 4x4 vehicle is advised as only 100km of the 250km is a tarred road.
By rail: Adventure-seeking visitors can catch the train from Dar es Salaam for a unique travelling experience.
