The Retreat is a very different style of camp to others in the Selous Game Reserve – in fact it is totally different to any other camp we have seen in Tanzania! While it is a safari camp, and so is partly focused on wildlife viewing, it puts a stronger emphasis on the spiritual aspects of its care. Its owner, Uma Grob, envisaged the camp as a place for travellers to re-charge not only their bodies, but also their souls.
Our view of The Retreat
For keen safari goers heading to the Selous, and seeking as much wildlife viewing as possible, this probably isn't the camp to stay at. However, if you want to relax in a peaceful and beautiful camp, enjoying spa treatments with safaris also on offer, then it could be the perfect choice.
The Retreat is set on a remote stretch of the Ruaha River.
