The Retreat Selous has re-opened on June 1st after being closed for the rains. The past weeks were used to undergo a major rehabilitation of all the suites, main house, bars and the SPA to ensure that guests continue to enjoy an exceptionally high standard of luxury and comfort. The whole lodge has been constructed to harmonise with the beautiful and remote Selous habitat that surrounds it. Gleaming in new splendor.
