A truly memorable 4 days spent in the "River Suites" overlooking the hippos in the river. The suites have their own plunge pool and are a short walk from their own swimming pool. The tents (suites) are luxurious with hot and cold running water as well as electricity. Not a place to go if you wish to tick wild animals... More
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Retreat, located in Northern Selous, is a twelve-suite exquisite hideaway that offers complete seclusion in the heart of remote bush lands. The set tented suites under palm thatched roofs with expansive distance between each suite have been constructed to correspond with the surrounding habitat, whilst guaranteeing privacy and romance. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Selous Game Reserve is the largest protected wildlife sanctuary in Africa and is widely accredited as being the most pristine wilderness and one of the "secrets of Africa." Elephants, lions, black rhinos, leopards, wild dogs, giraffes, hippos, crocodiles and more than 400 different birds can be seen among many other wildlife. Sumbazi airstrip, 30 minutes drive from the Lodge, is served by several airlines from Zanzibar, Dar es Salaam, Arusha and Ruaha. Seek adventure, rejuvenate the soul, re-define the balance of life in taking a breath from the hectic world. Tailored made activities are assuring that every guest can explore and experience The Africa right for him or her. Our passionate and experienced guides are true "guides" into such tailor made experiences made as daily excursions from the lodge on foot, boat or road in tracking untamed animals in combination of a night in a fly camp or in our love nest. A serene point of relaxation is our outdoor "Senses to Africa SPA" at the shores of the River with wet and dry treatment areas and a Jacuzzi using ancient traditional and medical ingredients and wisdoms. ... more less
