Azura Selous, Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania

Azura Selous is nestled along the Great Ruaha River in the heart of the Selous Game Reserve, one of the largest faunal reserves of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site for the diversity of its wildlife and undisturbed nature. Within this vast wilderness, Azura Selous offers an authentic African safari that is stylish and personal.

Azura is owned by Chris and Stella Bettany. They first fell in love with Mozambique in the 1990's and built Azura Benguerra Island in collaboration with the local community. As their own family grew, so did their wishes for more family holidays in beautiful places with amazing experiences, so they added Quilalea Private Island, and more recently their first safari lodge, Azura Selous.


Boating safaris are a calm and soulful way to see African wildlife from a different perspective.

Azura brings a whole new meaning to luxury accommodation in the Selous. The tented villas are a haven of rest and relaxation overlooking the tranquil rapids of the Great Ruaha River and their resident hippo. The unique 'eco-chic' design of the tented villas offers guests something very different and fresh compared to other lodges in southern Tanzania.
