Discover a sanctuary so unique that it preserves both the natural environment, the culture of the local people and the spiritual needs of its guests, the Retreat Selous, the ultimate luxury Tanzania game lodge. Find this lavish refuge hiding within the enormity of the Selous Game Reserve, the largest protected wildlife sanctuary in Africa.
Join Voyage2Africa to experience the untamed wilderness of Nyerere National Park, remote, secluded and real. We love the Retreat Selous for its inspiring design that merges with the pristine landscape away from the madding crowds, an intimate affair featuring only 12 tented suites intending to merge with animal life and not intrude on it.
Make sure you spend several days experiencing the five-star service, excellent food, superb, tented accommodation, a spa to ease any tension and more. Enjoy absolute solitude from other tourists, fewer herds of animals and more tranquillity and time to find the little things in nature that complete the bigger picture. An affordable retreat where the quality of peace in the wilderness supersedes the race to be in a lavish bush lodge to tick off the Big 5.
Enjoy fresh coffee and muffins at dawn, set off on a game drive and return for a large, cooked breakfast and time to chill in the camp. Evening drives are exhilarating complete with sundowners on a river sandbank as the sun sets and only the hippos and stars as company.
The Retreat Selous is simply outstanding in terms of quality tents, perfect setting and African bush design. Sit quietly on your private deck and watch the antelope grazing quietly nearby. Revel in superb dinners beside the campfire, talking about nature and all her beauty and all the funny and profound incidents you witnessed that day. Enjoy a private bath in your private plunge pool at your tented suite and sleep like a baby.
The Selous Retreat is all about the guest. The guest who comes to experience the African wilderness with style and comfort. The guest who wants something extra, something special and something that places them in a league of their own. The Selous Retreat, therefore, offers tailor-made escapes aimed to rejuvenate mind and body in the hugeness of the Selous Game Reserve – choose from Adventure, Awareness, Romance in Africa, and Family Delight, the Spiritual Retreat to really appreciate your safari in Tanzania.
Learn from passionate and experienced local and international guides trained to take care of your safety and to teach you about the wilderness, its fauna and flora, intricacies and dangers. Enjoy long day hikes tracking wild animals or sleep under the stars in a fly camp. Some people need more than just game drives and bush walks so the Retreat has designed special escapes involving yoga and meditation, spiritual awareness, art and more. It all goes back to finding harmony in and with nature.
This Tanzanian safari lodge has combined the importance of local cultural heritage where the buzzwords ‘responsible tourism’ and ‘sustainable tourism’ were practised long ago. The Selous Retreat is conserving wildlife, its habitat, and the communities that have lived in the area for decades. Come and learn about a win-win project and still have fun seeing wild animals and meeting real people.
