Are you planning a trip to Tanzania from September this year? Get an opportunity to stay at the newest camps in the wild. As part of its expansion efforts in East Africa, Asilia Africa is set to open two new camps in southern Tanzania.
The hotel group, which boosts 21 properties around East Africa, will open Roho ya Selous in Selous Game Reserve in August and Jabali Ridge in Ruaha National Park a month later.
Selous reserve is one of the largest remaining wilderness areas in Africa and is known for its varied landscape of grasslands and water ways.
Roho ya Selous
Roho ya Selous will have eight stretch canvas tents including one family tent, with each tent having an over-bed “evening breeze” cooling system for the hotter months.
The camp will also have Wi-Fi with guests also getting the opportunity to engage in game drives, walking safaris, boating safaris and fishing (catch and release) at Lake Nzerakera and the Rufiji River system.
The reserve is located less than an hour drive from Dar es Salaam, and combines easily with Ruaka National Park for a longer and contrasting safari itinerary.
Spanning a vast 45,000km, the Selous is larger than Switzerland and is home to just a handful of small safari camps, ensuring an exclusive safari experience.
Jabali ridge is set high on a rocky kopje overlooking a landscape dotted with spiky palms and bulbous baobabs.
The lodge is strategically set to enable uninterrupted exploration of Ruaha National Park.
The remarkable beauty of Ruaha is not only in the landscape and its diversity of flora and fauna, or the impressive big game, but in the feeling of having the wilderness all to yourself.
With only a handful of visitors at any one time in an area the size of New Jersey, this is an exceptional safari experience.
Asilia Africa is also setting up Jabali Ridge, a 10-suite lodge hidden among the rocky boulders that cocoon the property.
It has an infinity pool, spa and plenty of places to ensure that your time off is memorable.
While here, enjoy guided walking safaris, game drives and night drives.
