The Retreat Selous is a luxury safari destination situated in a most remote corner of the Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania. The chic safari camp offers breathtaking views from the vantage point of the hill-top fort down towards the banks of the Ruaha River. The spaciously set tented suites have been sensitively constructed to harmonize with the raw habitat, whilst guaranteeing privacy. The decorative interiors are a step away from the traditional colonial style found in many lodges and camps. Instead, and under Swiss management, the owners have carefully blended ethnic elements, bespoke furnishings, African antiques, natural materials, and precious stones - a new sense of comfort and luxury. Striking views and vistas provide guests with a wonderful direct window into the wilderness and wildlife - an integral part of the master plan - as well as the expansive distance between each suite. The atmospheric main house, The Fort, memorizes on the finding of an ancient military observation point from the first World War and draws upon the influences of the great East African market, when traditional ‘dhows’ transported – also during the same time - supplies, textiles, furniture and decorative elements from Asia, Arabia and various coastal African countries.
