Roho Ya Selous




Set on a small peninsula, Roho ya Selous overlooks a key waterway linking Lake Manze to Lake Nzerakera, in the heart of the core game-viewing area of Nyerere National Park. This comfortable and stylish camp offers game drives, walking safaris, boating, and catch-and-release fishing, and is ideally situated for exploring this diverse and beautiful reserve. Nyerere National Park is the largest reserve in Africa and home to one of the biggest populations of wild dogs on the continent.

A day at Roho ya Selous starts with an early wake-up call and a cup of tea or coffee. Guests have breakfast at camp or have their meal packed to enjoy on the morning game drive, returning to camp at lunchtime. The afternoon is time to rest. Relax with a book, take a dip in the pool or have a siesta. Guests then refuel with afternoon tea before heading out onto the lake, where they can sip a G&T onboard the lodge's boat. Round off the perfect day with drinks around the campfire and a leisurely dinner.

The name Roho ya Selous means ‘heart of the Selous’. Balancing adventure with plenty of comfort, the camp offers travellers an authentic safari experience. The lodge has seven-seater, open-sided game vehicles for exploring further afield in the reserve and getting closer to large herbivores and predators. The vehicles have canvas roofs, power points and fridges — everything needed to stay comfortable out in the bush.

Guest Tent

Roho ya Selous’ eight tents are tucked away into the trees and set far apart to maximise privacy. They are stylish and spacious, measuring 60m² inside. Thoughtful details include an evening breeze cooling system over the bed that allows for a peaceful sleep even during the hotter months and an en-suite bathroom complete with indoor and outdoor shower. Twin and triple configurations are also available on request.


Family Guest Tent

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 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.
