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.
