Overview

Kiba Point belongs to the Nomad Tanzania portfolio and is a sister property to the nearby Sand Rivers Camp. Accessible only by air, this private lodge occupies a stunning secluded riverside location right in the heart of the Selous game reserve, Southern Tanzania.

The thatched main mess area is surrounded by the swimming pool and pretty gardens. Although Kiba’s location isn’t quite as impressive as that of Sand Rivers, it’s a real thrill to see elephants and other animals wandering around this peaceful and private retreat at such close proximity.

The camp has its own team of guides and guests can enjoy all of the activities offered at the main Sand Rivers Camp, including twice daily game drives, bush walks, motorboat safaris and fly camping. The Selous game reserve is a World Heritage site full of diverse habitats and a host of wildlife making it one of the best places in East Africa to experience a safari.

The accommodation is split into four stone and thatch cottage-style bedrooms that house up to eight guests in total. Each room has its own veranda, private plunge pool and en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers, running hot and cold water and flush toilet. The cottages are open fronted to maximise wildlife viewing during the day, and heavy netting can be zipped closed at night if guests wish.

Children from eight years of age are welcome, although for safety reasons, fly camping and walking safaris are only available to those aged twelve years and over. One of the four cottages has adjoining rooms for parents and children to share. Although there are no dedicated facilities for children, they are welcomed here and are free to play in the pool and gardens. However, the location is very wild, and while it’s highly uncommon for animals to approach humans, children must be kept under constant parental supervision.

Kiba Point is a high-end option for travellers looking to find an authentic and exclusive safari experience, with a high level of freedom and flexibility.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
