Africa Safari Selous is more than an accommodation, as a stay here is an unrivalled safari experience that you are unlikely to find anywhere else. Located just outside the Selous G.R./Nyerere National Park in southern Tanzania, the property is spacious. Much of the original vegetation has been retained, and respect for the environment is reflected in each of the carefully constructed rooms. The waterhole that the restaurant overlooks could well provide unexpected views!

Africa Safari Selous has accommodation for every budget; ranging from pre-built Safari tents to Banda Bungalows to Pool Bungalows. The most striking accommodations are the 24 'mud bandas' built based on Boma's, the traditional houses of the Maasai people. They are a perfect combination of culture and comfort, and an experience not to be missed during your visit to Selous G.R./Nyerere National Park. The Pool Bungalows are spaciously laid out around the swimming pool with umbrellas and sun loungers, and are air-conditioned. The large size of the rooms makes them perfect for families or smaller groups of friends enjoying their travel adventure together. The bathrooms in these bungalows are naturally aerated and environmentally friendly lined with bamboo, they are a unique feature in themselves.

The centrally located campfire is a great place to socialise in the evening and share stories of your adventures.

If you are looking for a Safari Lodge just outside Selous G.R./ Nyerere National Park, then you have found the right place!
