Roho ya Selous, Selous Game Reserve

Opened in August 2017, Roho ya Selous is a comfortable and stylish camp in the heart of the Selous Game Reserve. Blending in to the surroundings, the eight 60m2 safari tents are tucked into the shade on a hill, overlooking the water which links Lake Maze to Lake Nzerakera. The spacious tents are spread apart to ensure maximum privacy and intimacy with the wilderness of the Selous.

Lodge Details


A stylish, intimate and exclusive camp.


Set in the heart of the photographic sector of the Selous Game Reserve, the Roho ya Selous is the ideal camp for explorers wanting to see traditional species including elephant, buffalo, hippo, lion and leopard. Surrounded by swamps, palm trees and the rivers and lakes, it is a completely opposite environment to the northern parks such as the Serengeti.

Accommodation & Facilities

Shaded under the trees of the Selous Game Reserve, the eight stylish and spacious tents are set apart for maximum privacy. With a neutral colour scheme, the tents are decorated with stylish wall hangings and beautiful furniture. Each room has its own personal en-suite bathroom, complete with indoor and outdoor shower, separated from the main room with a hanging wall. The veranda offers a shady spot to relax and unwind after the long days spent in the sun.


All meals are prepared in camp and are usually enjoyed in the communal lounge area. Breakfast will be served as a buffet-style, as will lunch, then tea and cake will be served at 4pm which is a camp tradition. For your evening meal, dinner is a relaxed three-course affair, served under the beautiful African night sky. 


The Selous Game Reserve offers diverse safari activities allowing you to experience the wilderness in many immersive ways. From game drives to walking safaris to boating safaris, you’ll be sure to see the wildlife from all different locations.

During the game safari, you’ll be driven further afield to search for larger mammals and predators using seven-seated open-sided vehicles to assure an uninterrupted view. There is a roof for shade, power points for chargers and a fridge to keep your refreshments cool.

Taking to the Selous on foot brings you closer to the environment and wildlife. Accompanied with an armed expert guide, you’ll be protected whilst experiencing the truly immersive experience.

The boating safaris invite you to seek pods of hippo and crocodiles sunning themselves on the sandbanks. Drifting close to bird colonies nesting in the riverbanks and smaller islands will give you the closest encounter available.

Lastly, combining your boat safari with some catch and release fishing is a way to relax in the afternoons.

Child Policy

Children 5 years and above are welcome and there is a specific family room.
