Roho ya Selous, the latest addition to the Asilia stable of ecotourism camps, has opened its doors in the Unesco world heritage site of Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania.

Situated on a hill overlooking a key waterway in the heart of the Selous Game Reserve, Roho has eight private en suite tents, including a family tent.  Activities on offer in this diverse landscape of swamps, river and lakes are game drives, walking, boating and fishing on a catch-and-release basis.

"We are committed to bring substantial volumes of upmarket, responsible tourism into southern Tanzania and to make tangible contributions to the local communities and conservation agenda in those areas.  Tourism done in the right way can really transform the prospects of vast wilderness areas in Africa and the people living there," said Jeroen Harderwijk, managing director of Asilia Africa.
