The lodge is built on a game concession located only some few kilometres away from the ‘Mtemere Gate’ on the north-eastern side of the reserve. This small luxury lodge has 10 contemporary African styled safari cottages equipped with en-suite facilities, private bathrooms, a lounge and spacious bedroom area which is either double or twin-bedded.
Service needs improvement
We got interesting experience and knowledge, having been on Safari in Selous. Familiarity with the nature and wildlife of East Africa will remain in our memory forever.
Safari with Selous Kinga Lodge can not recommend to other travelers.
At first there were problems with payment. The amount of the first Safari bill is less than 2 times the agreed amount. The Manager explained that it is necessary to pay the second part in cash on the spot. The day before departure, the accountant requires to make a payment through the Bank, but there is no Bank near me. Long corresponded, agreed on the first option.
Then the Manager changes the declared direct flight Zanzibar-Selous to another with an additional landing in Dar es Salaam. Additional landing on the way in both directions, which complicates the procedure of the trip.
No one met us when we arrived in Selous. Half an hour later, we drew the attention of one of the locals, at our request phoned the Lodge and notified them about us. As a result, we were picked up 2 hours after our arrival.
During the Safari, the driver drove off the road and got stuck in the mud. With the help of other people in 1.5 hours we managed to get out of the mud and continue on your way.
On arrival at the Lodge in the evening wanted to swim in the pool. The pool floor was very slippery. To go into the water failed. No one uses the pool and it is not cleaned.
From start to finish this was an incredible experience. We did a 4 day fly in fly out safari in Selous Game Reserve staying at Selous Kinga Lodge. We booked it only a couple days in advance while staying on Zanzibar - Fadhili was very efficient in communicating with us, answering questions, and organising everything for us. The game drives in Selous Game Reserve were amazing. We saw all the animals in Selous except for the very elusive leopard - but we were more than happy with our Safari experience. Our driver Jumani was awesome - funny, very knowledgeable, and he focused on trying to find specific animals if we hadn't seen them yet. Kinga Lodge itself is great. The cottage rooms are very nice, the meals are restaraunt standard, and all the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Also the lodge manager Vincent is THE MAN!!! He even took time out of his day to take us to see the local village and tell us all about it, which was a very humbling experience. We wish we could have stayed longer in Selous. Definitely recommend Selous Kinga Lodge.

Great three night stay in Selous Kinga Lodge
I had a great three nicht stay at Kinga Lodge in Dec 2017, the lodge is highly recommended. Very friendly people, nice and big rooms and tasty food. Especially Louis support was highly appreciated as my luggage arrived only with delay (an error by teh European airline). Thanks again, hope to be back at Kinga Lodge one day.
