Azura Retreats, known for its impressive luxury boutique hotels, has expanded to Tanzania with its first safari property, Azura Selous, on the banks of the Ruaha River in the stunning Selous Game Reserve. Stylish and overindulgent amenities paired with single-vehicle game viewing and walking safaris, give Azura Selous its official “wow” factor.
The camp’s 12 air conditioned tented villas reflect a uniquely eco-chic style in the middle of the African bush, with indoor stone bathrooms, chandeliered dressing areas, outside showers, and large terraces outfitted with private plunge pools and river views of the resident noisy hippos. Each villa is decorated to reflect elephant, zebra, monkey and various animal themes, making every accommodation unique.
Wake up to the sound of hippo snorts and birdsong over morning coffee brought directly to the villas. Activities and dining at Azura Selous are tailor-made specifically to meet guests’ expectations and interests. Indulge in four-course gourmet dinners served in different bush and river locations each night, lantern lit under the crystal clear African night sky, and complement game drives with leisurely sunrise bush breakfasts or romantic sundowner picnics and happy hours. The wild and rugged terrain of Selous Game Reserve is known for its pride of lions, herd of elephant, occasional leopard, and packs of wild dog, and it is unlikely that guests will see another game drive vehicle on their explorations.
Other activities at Azura Selous include walking safaris and incredible fishing opportunities. Of course, one doesn’t even need to leave camp to see the passing wildlife. Between the frequent cry of the fish eagle, the crocodile and hippo sightings in the river, and the animal tracks dotted throughout the camp, it is no wonder why Azura Selous is praised for its untouched and wild African experiences.Request Information
