Azura Selous, Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania

Azura brings a new dimension to your safari. You’ll see a diversity of wildlife, whilst experiencing the wow factor that Selous style brings to life in the wilderness.

Your sense of adventure will definitely be satisfied – in fact you’ll find yourself holding your breath - as you watch lionesses edging closer to a herd of wary zebra. You will be thrilled when your first hippo abruptly surfaces snorting water, in front of your camera lens. And you will certainly have the sensation of being in the remotest wilderness as you bounce along bumpy tracks and rocky river beds. But after the excitement is over, Azura Selous has another, very welcome facet to its hospitality. As a part of a tailor-made, luxury holiday to Tanzania, Azura puts the emphasis on comfort. So, after a hot day on the plain, you can immerse yourself in your own private plunge pool. The perfect place to sip a sundowner.
