The Retreat Selous: An enchanting refuge in Tanzania

The Retreat Selous-01-1 Kindesign

The Retreat Selous is an all-suite tented lodge, an enchanting refuge situated in wild bush on the banks of the Ruaha River, Tanzania. Your suite is one of just twelve in this remote haven in the Northern Selous. As the largest protected wildlife sanctuary in Africa, The Selous Game Reserve is often described as a place where one will find the most pristine wilderness – one of the “secrets of Africa” indeed. The Retreat Selous has been built into pristine land, untouched for centuries far away from anybody else. A mystical and historical spot where the journey to experience the power of the African nature and undisturbed behavior of wildlife roaming freely around you is getting a new dimension.

The main house, ‘The Fort’ is perfectly positioned on the site of a former military observation point from World War 1 and provides guests with a direct 360 degree panoramic view over the Ruaha river and untouched plains. The beautiful tented suites are mounted on raised teak wood platforms and each comes with its own private deck and outdoor bath and chill out area allowing you to savour your own experience of the surrounding wilderness. The canvas interiors are handmade to reflect the stars of the African sky and are complimented with African antiques and local handcrafted materials.

To stay at this incredible retreat, nightly rates start from $695, from here.
