Beho Beho, known locally as ‘wansalishi’ which in Swahili means ‘the pioneer’ was the first permanent camp to be located in the northern sector of the Selous Game Reserve. Originally established as a hunting camp and later converted into a permanent camp. Sited on Kipalala Hill, above the Msine tributary of the Beho Beho river, it enjoys uninterrupted panoramic views over the Rufiji river flood plain. Beho Beho camp is unique in the fact that it sits in the center of five different Eco-systems – riverine; mountainous; water systems; open and lightly wooded savannah; and mixed to miombo woodland. Located 145 miles south west of Dar Es Salaam, the camp is 3 miles from the grave of Frederick Courteney Selous after whom the reserve is named.
