Roho ya Selous
Selous Game Reserve is the former name of Nyerere National Park, and Roho ya Selous means ‘heart of the Selous’ in Swahili – which is exactly where this camp is located.
Overlooking a beautiful waterway that links the key lakes of Nzerakera and Manze, this location is prime in Nyerere National Park. Wildlife gravitate towards the lakes and rivers in large numbers, particularly during the dry season, which means a stay here is guaranteed to provide excellent opportunities for game viewing.
As with all properties in Nyerere, the camp offers much more than the standard game drives that are found in other parks. Here you will be able to embark on thrilling walks or incredible boat safaris, floating past crocodiles and hippos, whilst watching the sensational birdlife from the tranquility of your vessel.
If fishing is your thing, you can arrange excursions to try and land the formidable tiger fish, or just cast a line or two as you enjoy a sundowner. All fishing is on a catch and release basis.
Accommodation is provided in stylish yet simple tents with ensuite bathrooms complete with indoor and outdoor showers. They have a family tent, which includes an ensuite children’s room, and the ease of travel to/from Nyerere makes this an excellent location for families.
