Rooms at Africa Safari Selous

Of the accommodation types, the most distinctive ones are the two dozen mud ‘bandas,’ styled after the traditional Maasai boma (house.) people. Chic and comfortable, they compare with the air-conditioned Pool Bungalows surrounding the swimming pool. 

For smaller budgets, Africa Safari Selous provides small but well-fitted tents and a campsite for anyone who wants to bring their tents.
