The Retreat is located in Northern Selous, the Selous Game Reserve is the largest protected wildlife sanctuary in Africa.
The Retreat offers four different styles of accommodation.
Twelve spacious high tented suites under palm thatched roofs with expansive distance between each suite have been constructed in three independent units to correspond with the surrounding habitat, whilst guaranteeing privacy and romance.
The tents are protected by two layers – a strong mosquito net as an inner wall and heavy duty canvas on the outer side. If guests wish to be closer to nature, all tents can be fully opened to the sounds, breeze and full view of the environment.
Each suite has its own private outdoor deck with a stunning signature outdoor antique copper, brass or silver bathtub.
Ethnic elements, bespoke furnishings, African antiques, natural materials and precious stones have been blended to create a unique sense of comfort and natural luxury using principles of Feng Shui and the Five Elements in materials and interior design.
Besides the restaurant at the Fort, there are several attractive areas in which to dine in such as the Sunset Pool, Hippo Point or even in the guest suites.
Dependent on weather conditions and guests’ requests, bush dining is a regular feature at The Retreat where freshly prepared food is cooked in situ over an open fire.
Local and international cuisine, utilizing fresh produce from coastal regions, is brought in and prepared by The Retreat’s skilled chefs, who are trained under Wolfgang Kuchler, a leading 18 point Gault Millau cook from Switzerland.
