What we love about Roho ya Selous

Explore on land and water -  Nyerere National Park has a vast network of lakes and rivers to explore by boat and trekking routes to explore by foot, ensuring you get to see all the wildlife there is. 

A quiet getaway - The park that surrounds Roho ya Selous has excellent game viewing opportunities, but there are far less visitors than Serengeti, making the experience feel a lot more exclusive. 

Family friendly - Have a fuss-free holiday at Roho ya Selous. Children over 5 are welcome, and have their own en-suite rooms and exciting activities to choose from.
