Azura Selous

Azura Selous

Feefo logo


Selous may be Africa’s largest game reserve and the second oldest in the world yet it maintains an exclusive air that means your vehicle will often be the only one at a game sightings. Selous is the size of Switzerland and has low visitor numbers throughout the year, making it a desirable destination for safari aficionados.

Safari lovers will also appreciate the 12 deluxe tents of Azura Selous, which is located on the banks of the Great Ruaha River, overlooking rapids and a pod of resident hippos. While the setting may be ‘uncivilised’, the accommodation certainly is not: all suites have air conditioning, outside showers, decks with private plunge pools and spectacular views of the river. After a day of game drives, walking safaris, boating or birding – look out for palm-nut vultures, rock praticoles and golden pipits – place yourself in the capable and relaxing hands of the Azura African Spa therapists.

Guests at Azura Selous have the option of dining alone or communally, and the twice-weekly bush barbecues are lit by lanterns under the twinkling night sky. For those who want to explore all that darkness has to offer, there are optional game drives to view nocturnal wildlife. Children over six are very welcome and all guides are trained in age-appropriate activities like tracking, spoor identification, walks in the concession and general bushcraft.

Tented Villa

Each of Azura Selous’s 12 tents have air conditioning, en suite bathrooms with outdoor showers and private plunge pools on the expansive decks, which have panoramic views of the surrounding bush and Ruaha River.


The central point of Azura Selous is the formal dining area, main infinity pool (book a foot massage next to the pool to sheer relaxation) and sitting room, which have all been constructed on different levels to benefit from the cooling breezes and to take advantage of the splendid views of the Ruaha River. The sitting area is the scene for star talks on request.

If you need even more relaxation, choose from the menu of spa treatments and enjoy the ministrations of the therapists in the privacy of your air-conditioned suite.

Azura Selous has a trading store stocked with safari essentials.


Meals are considered occasions at Azura Selous and guests are encouraged to choose a schedule that suits them, such as breakfast in bush on a morning game drive, a picnic lunch ‘in the field’ or back on the deck of the dining room, and dinner next to their private plunge pool.

Twice a week, Azura Selous hosts a bush barbecue, which is lit by lanterns and always popular. Special diets or food allergies can be accommodated but must be indicated well in advance of arrival because of the camp’s very remote location.
