Room types at Roho ya Selous
Double tentsTucked away into the trees, each of the eight tents are set far apart to maximise privacy. They are stylish and spacious, measuring an impressive 60m² inside. Thoughtful details include an evening breeze cooling system over the bed to allow you to sleep peacefully even during the hotter months, and an ensuite bathroom complete with indoor and outdoor shower. Twin and triple configurations are also available on request.
Family tentThe family tent is the same size as the double tents, but can accommodate a family of five - the footprint of the tents is 60m² inside. The main bedroom is a more compact version of the double tents, with evening breeze cooling system over the bed, fan, reed walls and slate floors. There is a main bathroom with flush toilet and outdoor shower. The children's room has its own shower and basin, and has a bunk bed and single bed, accommodating up to three children. The beds in the children's room do not have evening breeze due to the layout.
Activities at Roho ya Selous
No safari in the Selous is complete without a trip out on the water, passing pods of hippo in the shallows and crocodiles sunning themselves on sandbanks. Watch wildlife come to drink from the ultimate perspective, and enjoy drifting up close to bird colonies nesting in the riverbanks or on small islands.
Combine your boat safari with a bit of catch and release fishing, a relaxing way to spend an hour or so in the afternoon. The rivers are home to good populations of tiger fish as well as catfish.
Best for exploring further afield and searching for larger mammals and predators, game drives are a rewarding option for your safari. Using seven-seater open-sided vehicles with tiered seating, every guest is assured of an uninterrupted view of the wildlife. There is a roof for shade, power points for charging your devices and fridges to keep your sundowner drinks deliciously cool.
Immerse yourself completely in the rugged environment of the Selous on a walking safari accompanied by an armed expert guide, taking in the smaller details and tracking wildlife on foot.
