Your Family at Azura
Azura Selous is a perfect choice for a family safari. Since the camp opened we have had a strong focus on welcoming families and we accept children from age 6 upwards. We are very family friendly and we are the only camp in the Selous with a dedicated children’s programme.
We run a very informal and relaxed additional activity programme for children to help keep them entertained above and beyond the game drives but also and very importantly to educate them about the Selous and its wildlife.
Education is an important part of your stay at Azura. Our staff and guides are all experienced and very welcoming with children.
The children with the guides can do nature walks around the camp, or if over 12 do a walking safari with the parents and guides. Children can also try their hand at fishing in the Great Ruaha river in front of the lodge, we have some big fish in there!
We additionally have goody bags for children which include pens and colouring books with a specific twist to the wildlife in the Selous so they enjoy learning about what they have seen.
We are very adept at keeping our younger guests happy, and meal times are of course completely flexible to suit your needs.
The design of the tented villas easily allows children to share the bedroom with parents, they can accommodate two extra beds for young children and there is still plenty of space.
The lodge is unfenced and animals regularly walk in the camp, at night time all guests are walked by the guards safely back to your tented villa. For safety reasons children must be over 16 years old to have a tented villa without an adult staying in with them.
