The Retreat, a Tanzania game lodge in Selous Game Reserve, is totally different to any other camp in the Selous. This Selous safari camp offers wildlife viewing, but it puts a strong emphasis on relaxation.
The Retreat Selous is a Tanzania game lodge in Selous with a lovely open-air spa right on the Ruaha River. It has been designed as a well-being romantic safari retreat with an excellent spa and the added opportunity for Selous safari activities. For those looking for a Selous safari with a holistic approach, the Retreat is perfect.
A UNESCO World Natural Heritage site, Selous Game Reserve is a pristine, uninhabited area, twice as large as Switzerland. Only in the Serengeti will visitors see a greater concentration of wildlife.
Selous boasts Tanzania's largest population of Elephant as well as a large number of Lion, African Hunting Dog, Leopard, Buffalo and Hippo. Species commonly seen are Red and Blue Duikers, Eland, Hartebeest, Hyena, Klipspringer, Impala, Giraffe, Oryx, Reedbuck, Waterbuck and Zebra.
Whilst the bush generally is not suitable for very young children, The Retreat Selous welcome families with children enthusiastic about wildlife and nature, also ensuring that guests without children equally enjoy the peace and beauty of this Tanzania lodging undisturbed.
