The Retreat Selous is a luxurious all-suite tented lodge in the northern reaches of Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania. Offering spacious and airy suites with lovely views into the bush and over the Great Ruaha River, this is a lavish lodge experience that shows off Africa at its best.

The suites have been meticulously designed for both style and substance. As well as genuine African antiques and interiors using local materials, you’ll also find strong mosquito nets and lovely teak decks.

You can really make the most of your time spent here. There are game drives three times a day – the morning, the afternoon and the evening – giving you plenty of opportunities to see some of the world’s most incredible creatures. In the reserve you have the chance to see elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards, giraffe, hippos, crocodiles and so much more.


The lodge is based in Selous Game Reserve; a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest protected wildlife sanctuary in Africa.
