Welcome to our little piece of paradise.
Amara Selous is a luxury tented lodge in the heart of the Selous wilderness in Southern Tanzania. We overlook the rapids of the Great Ruaha River and its resident sometimes noisy hippo! We provide guests with lavish comfort in the middle of the African bush and offer classic slow safari’s in the wonderful Selous.
We opened in June 2010 and there is nothing quite like Amara in the Selous, a new bench mark has been set offering something very unique and special. Amara brings a whole new meaning to luxury accommodation in the Selous and were shortlisted as one of the best safari lodges in Tanzania in the 2012 World Travel Awards.
