About Azura Selous
Azura Selous is the perfect destination for honeymooners, romantics or family and friends looking for a enchanting place to stay. Azura Selous is the most luxurious tented accommodation in the Selous and a complete one off, there is nothing else quite like it in southern Tanzania.
Its one of a kind design with 12 tented air conditioned suites, private plunge pools and opulent stone bathrooms emphasise why many see Azura Selous as the best tented accommodation in the Selous. The infinity pool and all the suites overlook the hippo and river rapids of the Great Ruaha River, a truly stunning, intimate and special setting and experience. A place so special you may find it impossible to leave.
It will therefore come as no surprise that it has been short listed as one of the best safari lodges in Tanzania in the 2012, 2013 and 2014 World Travel Awards.
All the dining is private a la carte dining and you eat in a variety of locations throughout your stay making each meal time a special and intimate experience from bush breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
The lodge is very remote and isolated, allowing its guests space and privacy which not only makes them feel special from start to finish but ensures a truly unforgettable experience is had by all, uninterrupted by people on safari from elsewhere.
The Selous is the crown jewels of Tanzania and Azura Selous is truly a little gem that is fast becoming the lodge of choice for guests looking for an authentic safari experience.
Well off the beaten track and only accessible by bumpy roads, Azura Selous is far away from the other Selous lodges and offers very exclusive private game viewing where you won’t see anyone else from start to finish, this is real raw, rugged and authentic Africa!
The Selous is wild, rugged and diverse, it is not a zoo and your game drives are varied and always take in new areas to discover. With your guide you will track what you are looking for, often following fresh footprints and often off roading looking for the normal tick list of game that people have come to find.
Due to their exclusive location, the game drives here feel like you are on a private concession.
When you are enjoying experiences like a pride of lions, a herd of elephants, a leopard or a pack of wild dog all on your own with no other tourists you feel very humbled and lucky – very few places in Africa offer this intimate and exclusive experience.
