The Retreat Selous offers luxurious safari accommodation in a remote and unique setting: stay in grand tented accommodation while experiencing the untouched wilderness of the Selous Game Reserve - arguably Africa's last great wilderness.

Sit back and enjoy the views from the terrace as you watch hippos and crocodiles in the river below you before exploring the Selous on activities that range from game drives and boat safaris to rhino tracking with an experienced guide. Return to the Retreat for a relaxing specialised massage from the River Spa before enjoying a delicious sundowner on the upper-level Star Bar.

Enjoy panoramic views from the Star Bar which is situated on top of the Fort or relax during the heat of the day by the lodge's large infinity pool, or indeed in the privacy of your own private plunge pool.

Book a 'Monkey Head Massage' at the outdoor River Spa which is set on the banks of the Great Ruaha River.


Watch the sun rise over the river as you enjoy an alfresco breakfast on the elegant Retreat Selous terrace; after an amazing day on safari you'll be in the mood for a sunset cocktail before dinner, which may be served outside under the stars or in the main restaurant.
