Name of the game

Adventurous travellers seeking the very best game viewing need look no further than a brand new camp on the Selous Game Reserve in Southern Tanzania. This month sees the opening of Asilia Africa’s Roho ya Selous. The Swahili word ‘roho’ translates as ‘heart’, and the camp certainly lives up to its name, with an unparalled location right in the heart of the reserve. Eight stretch canvas bedroom tents provide luxurious accommodation. There is also an inside bar and seating area under stretch canvas, and an outside dining area in the shade of the trees with a fire-pit. Experiences on offer include boat safaris and catch-and-release fishing trips, as well as traditional game drives and guided walking safaris, with night drives (post-sundowner/pre-dinner) providing an opportunity for leopard spotting, too.
Roho Ya Selous is bookable through Timbuktu, with prices from £695 per person, per night. Stays can be built into any of Timbuktu’s customisable itineraries. For all enquiries contact  (020 7193 1326;
