Amara Selous Luxury Tented Camp

The Great Ruaha River in the Selous Game Reserve is home to Amara Selous, a luxury tented lodge located in Tanzania. Known for its pristine, unspoilt wilderness Tanzania offers incredible game viewing opportunities. Wild and untamed, the Selous Game Reserve is a World Heritage Site – its endless grasslands stretching as far as the eye can see. Providing lavish comfort and secluded intimacy in a serenely beautiful setting, the lodge offers exciting safaris and peaceful relaxation. Each of the twelve luxurious en-suite tents boasts their own private plunge pool and deck for viewing the birdlife and game that pass by.

Guests can switch to a slow-paced lifestyle – one that revives the soul and relaxes the mind. Short walks or long game drives reveal nature in all its glory – from the abundant birdlife that nest in gigantic baobabs, to the large African game that wander the plains. When the river is high enough, boating safaris on the Ruaha river offer a unique vantage point for viewing game such as hippo and crocodile. Walking safari’s offer a chance for close encounters with wildlife and guests will discover the indigenous flora that are used as natural medicines. Extending typical African hospitality and charm, all rangers are highly trained, experienced and passionate about their guiding.

For guests who need extra TLC, qualified therapists provide a range of treatments at the Simbazi Spa. A large main swimming pool offers respite from the day’s heat and sun-loungers scattered beneath shady trees are the perfect way to soak up the sounds of Africa. Elegantly African, the very spacious rooms offer both indoor and outdoor showers.

Described as “a slice of heaven in the wild” by previous guests, Amara is known for providing outstanding, friendly service. As the sun sets and drenches the African bush in an orange glow, staff go out of their way to make the African dining experience a memorable one.  Delicious meals are served in beautiful settings and long evenings around the campfire give guests a chance to nip at a nightcap and socialise. Spectacular and remarkable, Amara lives up to its reputation.
