Situated on the banks of the Ruaha River, the smart but relaxed Amara Selous opened in 2010 and is one of the newer lodges in the Selous Game Reserve. This is the first lodge of the ‘Amara Group’, which states its aim as offering ‘the highest quality and services in bush hospitality’ as it ‘develops a luxury travel collection of tented camps around Tanzania’.
Our view of Amara Selous
When we stayed in September 2012, we found Amara Selous to be a well-run, high-quality lodge with a nice relaxed atmosphere in good surroundings. The chic design and experienced management couple make Amara a high-quality choice, which may suit couples seeking privacy and comfort. However, be aware that the wildlife in this western side of Selous Game Reserve is both less relaxed and less numerous than it is in most areas further east.
