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.

Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
Fiona and Kevin
