Siwandu offers a diverse range of activities to ensure guests take full advantage of having the rich African wilderness on their doorstep. 

Game Drives

Our game drives are a shared experience with fellow guests, but Siwandu does offer a private vehicle with a driver guide which is available to book in advance for a daily surcharge.


Accompanied by our expert driver guides, travel in comfort in our 4WD open-sided vehicles and venture into the Reserve to explore the rich African wildlife of the Nyerere National Park.  

Game Walks

Walking is a wonderful way to get close to nature and to learn about some of the smaller species and ecosystems in the park as well as the flora and fauna. 

The walk is slow-paced, stopping under shade to hear interesting things from your knowledgeable guide.  Walks are offered to guests aged 16 and over.


When the rains have fallen, cruises venture into the sinuous waterways of the Rufiji River delta, the largest in East Africa. For the rest of the year Siwandu guests enjoy Lake Nzerakera, either in sturdy metal boats with covered canopies, or on our glorious pontoon boat. Guests can savour the ultimate luxury of dining or sipping a sundowner on the move, while enjoying the wonderful variety of bird life, and watching animals come down to drink at the water's edge.
