Your Azura Hosts and Guides
With butler-hosts to look after your every need and fabulous dining in varied locations, Azura Selous Game Reserve is quite simply the most luxurious, comfortable safari accommodation in Southern Tanzania, and the perfect place to relax. This is the wild, authentic, tented African safari you have been dreaming of, without compromising on the luxury you need to feel at home. Our highly trained guides will make your safari at Azura truly special, personalising a safari itinerary for you that includes extensive game viewing drives, both on and off road, walking adventures, boating, fishing and star gazing.
Azura Selous Facilities
Where bush-chic meets contemporary, our main area at Azura is raised up high for spectacular views of the river and to catch the cooling breezes. Find a quiet corner to relax with a book, cool off in the vast infinity pool, linger over lunch, shop our Trading Store, learn the traditional game of bao, or just sit back, relax and watch the hippos from our lounging deck. At night, surrounded by the glow of myriad lanterns, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine from the owner’s Chateau, or an ice cold Kilimanjaro, while you discuss the stories of your day.
All Part of the Experience
Unlike most safari lodges we don’t group our guests together for meal times unless you specifically request to eat together. The concept here is that each meal time is a special occasion, it is a relaxed experience and a gourmet one, we offer a la carte dining and 3 course lunches and dinners. Our aim is for you to never eat in the same place twice. At Azura, dining is all part of the experience, from breakfast in the bush to dining under the vast African skies by candle light. Our hosts take huge pride in their innovative dining set-ups, and little touches to make your stay special.
Wining and Dining
At Azura, our team loves to surprise you with gourmet picnics, traditional African sundowners, and fabulous candle-lit dinners in varied locations. It’s just perfect for couples looking for a romantic safari stay. Enjoy stargazing and fireside stories to the distant roar of lions at our incredible bush dinner, or wonder at hippos emerging for their night time saunter as you enjoy a four course dinner at the river’s edge. Despite our remote location, our chefs offer a la carte dining that is a highlight of every guest’s time with us.
Azura African Spa
Relax and unwind from the daily safari adventures with a soothing pamper session by the pool, or a massage on the deck of your tented villa to the sounds of the river and its attendant wildlife. Enjoy our unique African inspired treatments using natural organic ingredients like the highly prized Marula or Baobab oils. Signature treatments use only natural ingredients sourced from the wilds of Africa, for the ultimate relaxing and pampering African Spa experience. Relax, revive, renew.
Your Family at Azura
Discovering Africa as a family is a special experience. At Azura Selous we welcome children over the age of 6, sharing a tented villa with their parents. We really know how to take care of families, and consider ourselves experts in what children love to see and learn about (we provide a special children’s workbook for kids staying with us). Please note, you will need to be comfortable that we are an unfenced property and animals regularly walk in the camp, which is all part of the excitement of a stay with us.
