We are thrilled to announce Siwandu has been awarded not one, but three Haute Grandeur Global Hotel Awards, which recognises exceptional contributions by outstanding hotels.  The Awards are the highest achievement for the luxury hotel industry, honouring only the best of the best and aim to provide travellers with a trusted selection of award winning properties to choose from when booking accommodation, each hand-picked for overall excellence on many levels.

From winning BEST LUXURY TENTED CAMP we were then nominated for five other categories and invited you, our guests, partners and friends to vote and down to your help we have now won a further two categories - BEST BOUTIQUE HOTEL & BEST VIEW HOTEL in Tanzania!  Thank you for voting we are absolutely thrilled!

"Everyone here at Selous Safari Company is honoured and delighted to have won these incredible awards and for us, what makes this accolade more special is the independent and unbiased way the prizes are bestowed.  Several awards in the travel industry are simply based on the amount of funds, lobbying or PR a hotel or camp can offer which dilutes the importance of them as they are simply paid for advertising.  Haute Grandeur prove to be the best as the winners are discovered and rewarded anonymously, simply basing winning criteria on recognising exceptional contributions by outstanding hotels alone."  - Charles Dobie, Director

Joining the Hall of Fame of Haute Grandeur winners is an honour, thank you to all those who took the time to vote and we look forward to participating in plenty more in our future!
