Africa Safari Selous   ·   Directly located on the border of the Game Reserve

Africa Safari Selous is more than an accommodation site, it is a ‘lodging experience’ like no other you are likely to encounter. Situated just outside the Selous GR (Nyerere National Park) in southern Tanzania, the accommodation site is spacious with much of the original plant life preserved, promoting the environmental importance that is evident in each of the carefully constructed lodgings. The most notable accommodations are the ‘mud bandas’ which were built based on Boma’s, the traditional homes of the Maasai people. Circular in shape and thatched with woven dried palm leaves, these spacious en suite rooms are traditional in appearance on the outside and made only with earth derived materials providing natural insulation from the heat. Inside they have been crafted with tiled flooring and fitted out with large wooden beds and modern bedding to provide all the necessities that come to be expected from modern-day accommodations.

The bandas are a perfect combination of culture and luxury and a not-to-be-missed ‘experience’ during your visit to Selous. In addition to the featured banda bungalows, Africa Safari Selous offers several pool bungalows spaciously positioned around the on-site pool. The large size of the rooms fitted out with a variety of bedding options makes them perfect for families or smaller groups of friends sharing their travel adventures together. The bathrooms in the bungalows are natural, aerated, and environmentally sound lined with bamboo. They are a unique feature in themselves. And of course, no Safari lodging would be complete without canvas homes – otherwise referred to as ‘Luxury Glamping’. The four canvas-based en suite rooms are scattered throughout the bush lands of the property, providing a bush/camping feel but with the luxurious necessities of modern-day travel.

Authentic bush lunch

Guests who booked a game drive with us will enjoy a bush lunch, prepared by our Chef in the middle of the bush, so that you will have enough energy for a good afternoon game drive.

Go for Beach & Culture to Zanzibar
Zanzibar is the perfect stop after your intensive Safari game drives in mainland Tanzania. The climate in Zanzibar is tropical but not too hot and humid. Zanzibar is a tropical paradise only a short distance away from the equator and all famous national safari parks. It is a place to relax or to find the mix of influences of Arabic and African cultures. There are many local flights to Zanzibar or try the fast ferry between Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.


Extension Zanzibar   ·   The jewel of the Indian Ocean

Enjoy the ultimate Beach & Safari Holiday. There is no better way to end your safari than by spending a few days/week relaxing on the pristine beaches of the exotic Zanzibar Island. Zanzibar is
an island of culture, history and art. Stroll through the cobbled alleyways of the historic Stone Town, and as you pass by one of the many palace ruins and Persian baths, it is impossible not to be captivated by the strong Arabian influence and romanticism of the Island. The coastal regions are the perfect places to relax and rejuvenate.
Spend some lazy days along stretches of white sandy beaches, dive into the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean or explore the underwater world surrounding the island by trying out a dive or snorkelling tour. Allow time to stand still as you sip a cool beverage, enjoy the finest of fresh seafood and watch one of the many spectacular sunsets on display.
