Azura Quilalea is the second luxury Indian Ocean Retreat from the Azura Retreats group, bringing Azura’s trademark African-chic style to Quilalea Private Island, a private, wholly uninhabited island paradise surrounded by the pristine waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago marine sanctuary.
Snorkel the island’s shores, dive from the main beach, kayak the mangroves or relax in a hammock beneath the giant baobabs on the island. Quilalea is the ultimate private luxury hideaway in a stunning undiscovered destination, an untouched paradise for the just a discerning few to discover.
Azura Selous has a pristine location on the banks of the Great Ruaha river, teeming with hippo, waterbuck and impala. Far from the madding crowds, in an isolated area we are protecting, you are ensured total privacy and exclusivity of game viewing. Whilst we are known for our lion, leopard and wild dog sightings, as well as the ever present hippos, it’s also a superb base for exploring this vast wilderness in our open sided Landrover safari vehicles, tracking the wildlife for a truly authentic safari experience, with some of the best trained guides in Tanzania.
There is no fixed safari schedule at Azura, instead our guides will tailor-make your day with game viewing drives that are as long or as short as you wish, through varied terrain and habitats, from ravines and miombo woodland, to the plains of Little Serengeti, the confluence of the Ruaha and Rufiji Rivers, or a full day visit to the lakes and Selous’ grave.
We are free to off-road where we wish, traverse dry river beds looking for leopard, take a bush walk to discover the ‘little 5’, glide the river by boat, learn to fish for tigers, catfish and squeakers, or try the thrill of a night drive. Guests also love to just sit back, relax and enjoy the luxury of our beautiful villas and main camp. This is the wild, authentic, tented African safari you have been dreaming of, without compromising on the luxury you need to feel at home.
