Azura Selous

This secluded and luxurious African retreat in Selous, south of Tanzania is Black Tomato’s best kept secret. It’s the perfect place to experience an authentic African safari and its stylish and chic décor offers a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere. Azura Selous offers breath taking views of the river rapids below and a beautiful infinity pool which overlooks the unique landscape. The remoteness of the resort ensures that you’ll not see another car during your entire stay. With only 12 tented villas this is the perfect romantic destination.


Being five hours away from the other resorts in Selous allows for a truly authentic safari experience and one which you’ll never forget. Each villa comes accompanied by an expert guide who is at your every beck and call. The guides will take you on thrilling game drives where you can experience the magical moments with the Selous wildlife. After embarking on the stunning game drives our guides can take you on beautiful walking tours, teach you how to traditionally fish and invite you to take a boat trip down the glistening rivers. Selous is wild, rugged and diverse and offers varied game drives which uncover Tanzania’s hidden gems. A 45 minute flight to Simbazi airstrip and then a 5 minuite journey in our private transfer will lead you to this paradise.


The villas offer a haven of rest and relaxation overlooking the tranquil rapid rivers. The villas all have differing animal themes and are designed in a chic and elegant way with a private plunge pool perfect for star gazing at night. The unique design is fresh and welcoming, part stone part tented ensures that you get the best of both worlds. With a linked reception area designed to mimic a termite mound and a terrace where you can enjoy regular spa treatments, you really will never want to leave this quaint abode.


The dining experience is like no other, the hotel ensures that meal times are always special occasions. You dine on your own away from the other guests and in different locations for each meal to ensure you never dine in the same place twice. Our favourite is breakfast in the bush and dining under the starry sky.
