Roho ya Selous

PLAN MY TRIP

Set on a hill overlooking a waterway, Roho ya Selous provides a luxury safari camp experience in the heart of the picturesque Selous Game Reserve.

Accommodations consist of eight double tents including one family tent. Tucked in the shade of the trees, the tents are set far apart from each other to ensure maximum privacy. The tents are spacious and stylish decorated and perfectly designed to allow cool breezes to waft over the bed during the hotter months. The en suite bathroom is separated by a lovely wall hanging and features a double vanity, flush toilet, and both an indoor and outdoor shower. A shaded veranda is the ideal spot to relax and watch the wildlife pass through the camp.

The camp is set in the heart of the Selous Game Reserve. Encompassing an area of over 21,000 square miles, not counting additional buffer zones, Selous is about three times the size of South Africa’s Kruger National Park and twice the size of Serengeti National Park. The landscape is more diverse than the Serengeti’s with swamps, palms trees, lakes, and rivers. In fact, the Reserve’s rivers and lakes sustain phenomenal wildlife concentrations, including Africa’s largest populations of elephant and wild dog. Along the Rufiji River, a plethora of animal and bird species can be found including waterbuck, reedbuck, bushbuck, crocodile, hippo, and black and white colobus monkeys. Because of its location and size, Selous is much quieter with fewer tourists per square mile than the other parks.

Daily game drives are conducted by expert guides and trackers in seven-seater open-sided vehicles with tiered seating so that everyone gets a prime view. The vehicles even have power points for charging and a fridge for cold drinks. Walking safaris are led by an armed guard and provide a more detailed look at the local flora and fauna. Boating safaris explore the waterways in comfort as pods of hippos play, crocodiles sunbathe, and flocks of birds nest in the trees along the riverbanks. Angers will enjoy some catch and release fishing of tiger fish and catfish.

The name roho ya selous means heart of the Selous for the camp’s ideal position within the Reserve. But the open-sided mess tent is the heart of the camp where everyone gathers for a meal and a chance to swap stories. Breakfast is served buffet-style, a light lunch buffet comes with fresh salads and vegetables, tea and camp are enjoyed in the afternoon, and dinner is a relaxed three-course affair eaten under a blanket of stars. There is also a refreshing pool. At the end of the day, everyone gathers around the campfire. The camp is closed from March 16th to May 31st.
