This new offering appeals to incentive groups as well as special occasions such as anniversaries and wedding celebrations. Three nights are recommended for groups to enjoy the full experience. Dining locations vary and alternate between the atmospheric main house, The Fort with a 360 view into hundreds of kilometres of untouched land, a sophisticated dining experience at Hippo Point and dining by the River as one of the highlights. There is plenty to discover and besides the Game Drives, The Retreat offers exceptional walking and boat safaris. For the more adventurous groups, fly camping offers a unique experience in the African bush and will not only be great for team-building but will also leave a piece of Africa in everybody’s heart. Executives can rejuvenate at the Senses to Africa Spa, the outdoor spa situated on the banks of the Great Ruaha River, combining an experience for body, soul and mind.
The Retreat SelousAbout The Retreat Selous:
The Retreat is a unique all-suite tented lodge, found in the remote far north of the Selous. It is situated in wild bush on the banks of the wide Great Ruaha River. The centrally situated main house - The Fort - is high up on a rocky hillside, allowing guests one of the best vantage points in the whole reserve. Private space, seclusion and individual services in harmony with nature are the hallmarks of ‟The Retreat‟.

The Selous Game Reserve is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and at 55,000 sq. km is twice the size of Switzerland and just 200 km south west by air of Dar es Salaam. It is the largest protected wildlife sanctuary in Africa and is widely accredited as being the most pristine wilderness. Sumbazi airstrip, 30 minutes drive from the lodge, is served by several airlines, notably daily scheduled flights (charters also available), from Zanzibar, Dar es Salaam, Arusha and Ruaha. From Dar es Salaam, the flight is operated comfortably and efficiently by Safari Air Link, Flight Link and Zanair in the morning and by Coastal in the morning and afternoon, with a personal meet and greet by an open 4WD vehicle and a personal guide from The Retreat.

The customised 100m² luxury tents, mounted on raised teak wood platforms, rise to a height of over 6 metres & are protected by two layers - a strong mosquito net as an inner wall and heavy duty canvas on the outer side.
All tents can be fully opened to the sounds, breeze and full view of the nature.
An integral part of each suite is its own private outdoor deck with seating and signature outdoor antique copper bathtubs.
A comfortable king size bed surrounded by a silk mosquito net.
Indoor en suite facilities, including separate shower and specially commissioned washbasins made from semi-precious stones.
Carefully designed interiors are complemented by handpicked African antiques and local materials.
