Safari Adventures at The Retreat Selous

Along with expert guides, you will enjoy half or full day game drives, cruise down the mighty Ruaha River, fish along its shorelines or camp under the stars on your Selous safari in Tanzania.

Bush Dining

You will be surprised with bush breakfasts, lunches, sundowners and dinners, where freshly prepared food would be cooked on an open fire by one of the experienced cooks and cocktails are served chilled.

Game Drives

Morning, afternoon and evening game drives are escorted by expert guides with a great understanding of the untamed bush. Game drives are taken in specialised safari vehicles that offer superb views of the free-roaming wildlife.

Walking Safaris and Hikes

Explore the bush and its residents on an intimate tour with expert wildlife guides. Learn more about the fauna and flora as you encounter the smaller treasures of the wild.

Special Birding Excursions

With a focus on the abundant bird life, these excursions are led by an expert birding guide who will introduce you to resident and migrant birds.

Ruaha River Safaris

On your Selous safari in Tanzania all vehicles and boats are equipped with radio communication and an armed guard escorts guests during boat cruises and canoeing. The lightweight, flat bottomed aluminum boats have been tailor-made to suit the conditions of the Ruaha River.

Line Fishing

Spend peaceful mornings or afternoons by the river and be rewarded with a catch of the popular Tiger Fish or Catfish.

Pamper Sessions at the Spa

Massages are a treat at the outdoor romantic river spa, followed by relaxing in the Jacuzzi observing the nearby hippos. Treatments can also be carried out in the guest tents in total privacy on your Selous safari in Tanzania.

Fly Camping

Adventure and closeness to nature can be experienced fly camping, accommodated in a translucent fly camp tent in one of the mobile camps, set up privately for guests arriving either after a day’s game drive or walking through the bush. Guests can experience the romance of private dining and service in the middle of the bush, with cooking on an open fire, special bush ablutions and a comfortable bed under the starlit African sky.
