Review

As the newest camp to the Selous Game Reserve, Roho ya Selous, which is sat in the prime area for game opened in August last year. Owned by Asilia, we are confident that the camp will offer the quality of experience that its sister properties throughout Tanzania do. Its location is enough to tempt guests in, but its luxurious and beautifully-designed accommodation makes it competitive with other high-end properties in the Selous.

Location

Perched on a small hill overlooking the mighty Rufiji River, Roho ya Selous sits in the best area for wildlife in the park. Nearby, resident hippo and crocodile are hard and seen on a regular basis on Lake Manze and Lake Nzerakera. With only a 20 minute drive from the airstrip, the camps location makes it accessible for a variety of game viewing activities such as walking, boating and driving.

Layout

The main mess area of the camp homes a cosy lounge with a roaring fireplace taking centre stage for cooler evenings. For accommodation, Roho ya Selous will have eight canvassed, spacious tents which will be spread out along the thicket, perfect for embracing safari life and having your own privacy.

Rooms

As the name translates to the “the heart of the Selous”, the idea behind the design of the camp is to mix both indoor and outdoor living. The rooms all have running hot and cold water, an indoor and outdoor shower, and even air conditioning for the warmer months. Each of tents have a private, shady veranda to relax on at the end of an exciting day!

Activities

There is a wide variety of activities that Roho ya Selous offer and the beauty is that guests can ‘mix and match’ every day, from a choice of game drives, walking safaris and boating safaris. Guests can also combine a boat safari with an hour or so bit of catch and release fishing, and the rivers home good populations of tiger fish as well as catfish.
