Amara Selous


Luxurious eco-friendly tented camps

Amara Selous is located in the heart of the Selous Game Reserve, Africa’s largest game reserve and one of Tanzania’s UNESCO World Heritage sites.

The remote Amara Selous tented camps combine lavish comfort and secluded luxury in the middle of the African bush. Their spacious air-conditioned tented suites offer views over the rapids of the Great Ruaha River and the perennial wilderness. The lodge is eco-friendly, featuring its own waste water treatment system to recycle all the water. Power is provided by a combination of solar, generator and an invertor system.

Stay in the private river suites or the king suite. Both offer the utmost privacy and beautiful outside seating areas with a wooden deck. All river suites have private natural plunge pools. Each room has an en-suite stone bathroom with attached outdoor showers. The river suites come with a king size bed, iPod docking station and room safes. Each suite is served by your personal butler. Traditional African treatments and massage therapies readily available on the privacy of your private deck overlooking the river.

Wake up to a daily symphony of hippo snorts and birdsong and enjoy custom-ordered cocktails while you soak in your private plunge pool and take in beautiful African sunsets. Enjoy private dining in stunning locations, from picnics in the bush dinners to dinner by candlelight by your private plunge pool.

Spa treatments are available on your decked terrace overlooking the river. Relax by the the pool or go on game drives, boating safaris (when the river is high enough), walking safaris with professional guides and birding expeditions.

Amara Selous is the only lodge in the Selous with a dedicated children’s programme so feel free to bring the young ones along.
