Azura Selous Game Reserve

Previous Next

If you are looking for 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 lodge offers indulgence on every level. There is a stunning infinity pool overlooking the river rapids at our uniquely designed main camp area. Our guests love our location which feels like a private concession as you are unlikely to see another vehicle during your entire stay.


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! Being part stone and part tented, linked with a large reception area and 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.


Expert guides take you on varied and exciting game drives where you experience magical moments with the Selous wildlife,. What makes your stay extra special is that you won’t be sharing these game experiences with other game vehicles, just you! Above and beyond the game drives, we offer wonderful walking safaris, fishing activities, spa treatments and all our dining is private to ensure your stay is intimate and personal. The Africa that you have been dreaming of awaits you at Azura Selous.

"Thank you all at Azura”

 Wow, what a great trip to Azura Selous Game Reserve and Camp. Really enjoyed everything about it.

The lions, the painted dogs, the hippos in the river next to my tent, the great tent and the great food.

The staff, managers, our guide Nenga and our waiter Imma were perfect!
