Room types at Roho ya Selous

1 of 1

Family Tent - 4 pax

The family tent is the same size as the double tents but is spacious enough to accommodate a family of five - the footprint of the tents is 60m² inside. The main bedroom is a more compact version of that of the double tents, with an evening breeze cooling system over the bed, fan, reed walls, and slate floors. There is a main bathroom with a flush toilet and outdoor shower. The children's room has a shower and basin, and has a bunk bed and single bed, accommodating up to three children. Due to the layout, the beds in the children's room do not have evening breeze cooling system.
