Selous Game Reserve

The Retreat Selous Location Map

The Retreat, located in Northern Selous, is a 12 suite exquisite hideaway that offers complete seclusion in the heart of remote bush lands. The Selous Game Reserve is the largest protected wildlife sanctuary in Africa and is widely accredited as being the most pristine wilderness and one of the “secrets of Africa”.

Elephants, lions, black rhinos, leopards, wild dogs, giraffes, hippos and crocodiles and more than 400 different birds can be seen among many other wildlife. Guests at The Retreat are invited to share a rare intact ecosystem of Africa which is perfectly untouched and can be explored in many different ways.

Tailored made activities ensure that every guest can explore and experience Africa - either as daily excursions from the lodge on foot, boat or on an open game viewing vehicle or sleeping under the African sky in a fly camp complete with private cook, butler and guide.

The Senses to Africa Spa is an enriching, outdoor natural 'River Spa', romantically situated on the shores of the Great Ruaha River. Guests are able to experience a spa treatment as one of their 2 activities per day included in the nightly game package rate.

The 12 spacious tented suites have palm thatched roofs, and there is an expansive distance between each suite ensuring privacy. If guests wish to be closer to nature, all tents can be fully opened to the sounds, breeze and full view of the environment.

Each suite has its own private outdoor deck with a stunning signature outdoor antique copper, brass or silver bathtub. Ethnic elements, bespoke furnishings, African antiques, natural materials and precious stones have been blended to create a unique sense of comfort and natural luxury.
