From Beho Beho it is possible to explore a unique array of varying biodiversity, from riverine forest, miombo woodland and plains to the fascinating lake regions of Tagalala and Mwanze. The speciality of the camp is to go on guided and guarded walking safaris, usually starting early in the morning before the heat of the day, the walks can last from an hour to three hours culminating in breakfast at a prearranged shady spot or at a rendezvous with a vehicle to go back to camp for a relaxing brunch. Afternoon walks can also be very rewarding, along the Beho Beho river or through the first World War trenches to meet a vehicle well supplied with welcome 'sundowner' drinks, before the darkness comes and it is time to head back to camp.
Beho Beho has a fleet of specially designed open - sided, but shaded safari vehicles used for game drives to farther flung areas in the reserve. These are not the pop-up roof type of enclosed safari cruiser found in the popular National parks, at Beho Beho you really do get 'up close and personal' with the wildlife!
Beho Beho also has a number of boats stationed at Lake Tagalala, about 30 minutes drive away from the camp. This excursion, usually done in the morning, gives a very close encounter with the resident hippos and crocodiles as well as an amazing number of bird species, culminating in breakfast under a shady tree and a walk to the nearby hot springs for a therapeutic swim in the warm mineral waters.
But it is not always necessary to leave the camp to witness excellent game viewing as there is always something 'happening' around Beho Beho. The camp appears to be on a crossroads of animal migratory routes, the animals seeming to appear totally unconcerned about the human habitation. Whether it is elephant, buffalo, waterbuck, giraffe, wild dog or hyena to name just a few, wandering through the camp at any time of the day or night.
But it is the guiding that is for us the most important part of your stay with us at Beho Beho. Our guides are amongst some of the most experienced in this part of Africa who not only freely share their love and knowledge of the African bush, but also act as your hosts, sharing meals and experiences so that there is always someone there to answer your questions and to relate wildlife experiences. Whilst in some camps you are allocated a specific guide, at Beho Beho we do things slightly differently and you get to experience different guides, so you may walk with one, drive with another and go to Lake Tagalala with another, but as they are all part of the Beho Beho family you will know them already and delight (as we do) in their diversity.
