A Camp with Heart

Tucked away at the southern end of Lake Nzerakera, sits Roho ya Selous, a camp connects you with the beauty of Tanzania.

Roho ya Selous

“Roho ya Selous” translates to “heart of Selous” in Swahili, and that is exactly what this wonderful camp is. Not only is it situated in a prime location within the Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania, but it is operated with such passion and soul that it truly exists as a living force in the reserve. In 1982, the reserve was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it exists as one of the largest conservation areas on the continent.

8 shaded luxury tents

The camp consists of just 8 shaded luxury tents, including one family tent. Each of these is equipped with en-suite bathrooms, cooling systems and a private veranda. The main area of the camp offers a swimming pool and open dining is where you can socialise and enjoy the shade while you tuck into the delicious food. Breakfast and lunch are served as a buffet, which dinners are presented as 3-course gourmet meals. The staff of the camp are there to attend to your every need and dietary requirement, ensuring you get only the best.

Nature, conservation, luxury and passion

In between meals and relaxation times, you can head out into the bush to explore what really makes Roho ya Selous so special: the superb wildlife. The reserve is home to the largest population of African wild dogs, a beautifully patterned, yet tragically endangered species. Other game includes leopards, lions, buffalo, elephants and over 400 bird species. There are many ways to engage with nature, including game drives, safari walks, boating safaris and catch-and-release fishing, all led by experienced and accommodating guides that will show you a world you’ve never experienced.

Nature, conservation, luxury and passion come together to create a destination that will warm your soul.
