Immerse yourself in a bygone safari experience, deep in the heart of the Selous wilderness at Azura Selous. This bijou camp consists of just twelve tented suites, each with their own private deck overlooking the Great Ruaha River and resident hippo. Dramatic interiors emulate the majestic surroundings and each suite offers opulent stone bathrooms, air-conditioning, iPod docking stations and oversized natural plunge pools. Children over the age of six years are welcome, with activities available including game-drives, walking safaris, fishing and river excursions. Private butlers, a la carte private dining in discreet and varied locations around the camp and traditional African spa treatments, delivered in privacy on your private deck, are just part and parcel of the attention paid to the details here to heighten your overall experience.

Holiday Enquiry

Separated by sandy walkways, to allow for guest privacy, each of the elegant tents feature stone floors which help to keep the rooms cool during the summer and are classically furnished with custom-made super-king-size beds, dressing rooms and spacious bathrooms with outdoor showers. iPod docking stations, air-conditioning, hairdryers, safes and radios for contacting the main lodge are provided, but there are no televisions or radios. Outside, views of the river can be enjoyed from the furnished decks and private plunge pools. Guests also enjoy a private butler service.


A la carte private dining, in a variety of discreet locations, ensures each mealtime is an intimate experience in its own right.


Azura Selous is extremely family-friendly and the only lodge in Selous Game Reserve to offer a dedicated children's programme – Amaradillos offers work books, awards certificates and a range of activities, including plaster casting.

Due to the nature of the experience and the location, children must be aged 6 years or over to stay in the camp. 

Health & Fitness

Unwind at the spa (or on your private deck), where a number of treatments are provided by qualified therapists. Personalised spa packages are available upon request.
