Azura Selous

Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania - Classic 4

Azura Selous - Selous Game Reserve - Tanzania Safari Camp

Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest faunal reserves of the world and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982 due to the diversity of its wildlife and undisturbed nature. Within this vast wilderness, Azura Selous offers an authentic African safari that is stylish, personal and filled with lots of wow factor. There is nothing like Azura Selous, in terms of style or concept, in southern Tanzania. The Selous is the best kept secret waiting to be discovered.

At the elegant main camp area a stunning infinity pool overlooks the Ruaha River while the 12 air-conditioned tented villas offer every creature comfort as well as opulent stone bathrooms and private plunge pools.

The beauty of being in the western Selous, hours away from the other lodges, gives Azura Selous a competitive advantage to offer guests a truly authentic and special safari experience. Guests love the location, which feels like a private concession, as they are unlikely to see another 4x4 during their entire stay. Expert guides lead varied and exciting game drives and guided walking safaris where guests experience magical moments with the Selous wildlife. Other activities include fishing in the Ruaha River and a comprehensive range of spa treatments in the privacy on your tented villa.

Room Detail

Azura brings a whole new meaning to luxury accommodation in the Selous. The tented villas are a haven of rest and relaxation overlooking the tranquil rapids of the Great Ruaha River and our resident hippo.

The 12 tented villas have differing animal themes and all have plunge pools overlooking the river rapids, relaxation in the bush doesn't get any better than this!

The unique 'eco-chic' design of our tented villas offers guests something very different and fresh compared to other lodges in southern Tanzania. They feature handmade items from community based projects in line with our 'designed to give' principles.

Being part stone and part tented, linked with a large reception area designed to mimic a huge termite mound, our unique tented villas give you the best of both worlds, and have all the luxuries you can imagine for your bush stay. Importantly you feel like you are close to nature offering you the feel of a real safari adventure.

The villas are air-conditioned and offer over 90sqm of inside space. The tented bedrooms are large and offer very comfortable custom made beds, lots of people tell us we have the best beds in the Selous! Large opulent stone bathrooms give you all the comforts you could need and also come with wonderful inside and outside showers where you can shower under the elements in privacy.

There is plenty of space for rest, relaxation and privacy. Going to sleep and waking up with the animal and bird noises and regular hippo snorts is truly very magical and special.
