    Default Selos, Ruaha & Serengeti booking procedure

    Please help!!

    We are trying to make campsite bookings at Selous, Ruaha and Serengeti and having no luck. We have tried the contacts on the TANAPA website but to no avail and cannot find any details for campsite bookings in Selous.

    Has anyone had any joy with this lately?

    Thanks

    There is no need to book public campsites in the Ruaha National Park. You are likely to be the only campers in that lovely park.

    The Selous is a game reserve and not a National Park. It does not come under TANAPA. Again, you are likely to be the only campers. However, I understand that paying the park fees nowadays in the Selous is rather complicated. Both the two entrance gates are in rather remote places. I would advise you email TanSwiss lodge or one of the lodges in the Selous itself and ask them how one pays for the Selous. They will know the current procedure. Cash or cards are not accepted at the gates and one has to pay beforehand through the game reserveÂ’s bank account.

    There are a number of threads on this forum about booking special campsites in the Serengeti. One doesnÂ’t need to book the public campsites in the Serengeti National Park. TANAPA donÂ’t seem to ever reply to emails and for booking special campsites, it is, apparently, quite a mission. What about getting a travel agent in Arusha to book special campsites for you? If you want to camp in a special campsite as opposed to the public campsites.

    Safari njema.
