For the ultimate African experience, visit Azura Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania. At Selous no detail is spared – from the intimate private meals to the absolute privacy ensured for each and every guest. Not to mention the main attraction, the beautiful array of wildlife from zebras to giraffes and elephants to hippos. At Azura Selous your every need is met – you’ll be spoilt with private intimate dinners, impeccable service as well as a personal game ranger who will take you out on daily game drives at dawn and dusk when the serenity of the bush is at its finest.
Azura Selous offers many attractions – the game drives are different every day as your game ranger takes you exploring by 4×4 across the rugged terrain. One day you may spot lions and water buffalo, the next day wild dogs and elephants. You’re also given the option of enjoying a sunrise breakfast or sunset picnic on your game drives. If you prefer to feel the ground beneath your feet and explore closer to nature, the walking safaris come highly recommended. A professional guide will take you along the river and around the camp where you’ll learn about the flora and fauna of the area, how to spot animal tracks as well as a chance to see the little five up close and personal.
The Great Ruaha river that runs through the camp is also home to over 440 bird species providing avid birders the opportunity to spot Fish Eagles, Palm-nut Vultures, African Skimmers, Golden Pipits and more. The river is teeming with hippos and crocodiles but under the supervision of your guide, fishing on the banks is a relaxing easy way to be one with nature. Also depending on the river levels, Azura Selous offer boating safaris where you’ll be able to view wildlife from a completely different perspective
At Azura, mealtimes are seen as an experience. Each breakfast, lunch or dinner is set up in a different exquisite location, where you’ll dine privately by candlelight and be treated to the most spectacular views and gourmet food. And when you’re in need of some serious downtime, book a spa treatment on the private deck of your tented villa and enjoy some pampering as you take in the sights and sounds of the surrounding river and wildlife.
