What to Do

Azura Selous is the carnivore capital of the Selous, home range for three large prides of lion, and lion cubs usually seen daily. There are six highly territorial leopard in our area, which have become well accustomed to our vehicles. The elephants roam through camp a couple of times a week on average, as we have a breeding herd nearby. We have frequent wild dog sightings that have denned close by to us in the last 2 years and our Hippo sightings and abundant bird life is 100% guaranteed as they inhabit the river where we are located.

We believe in a stay that is tailored to you. A full day drive with lunch in the bush, or a simple morning walk, the choice is yours. Our highly qualified guides will make sure that you get the most out of your stay, whatever it is that you hope to experience. The Selous Game Reserve is one of only a few locations in Tanzania where night drives are permitted, and Azura is the only camp in the reserve to offer this unique experience. As the light fades and predators shake off the heat of the day and become more active, enjoy the exhilaration of driving through the bush in search of them.

The Food of Love

At Azura, our team loves to surprise you with gourmet picnics, traditional African sundowners, and fabulous candle-lit dinners in varied locations. It’s just perfect for couples looking for a romantic safari stay. Enjoy stargazing and fireside stories to the distant roar of lions at our incredible bush dinner, or wonder at hippos emerging for their night time saunter as you enjoy a four course dinner at the river’s edge. Despite our remote location, our chefs offer a la carte dining that is a highlight of every guest’s time with us.
