Your honeymoon starts with four blissful nights at Azura Selous in the heart of the Selous Game Reserve, where you will stay in one of their beautiful and private tented suites.
During the day, relax by your private plunge pool between game activities and listen to hippos laughing in the rapids below – the game in this area is superb and your activities will be day and night game drives in the open sided 4x4's. It is also possible to go on game walks, to get closer to nature and see the smaller animals, insects and plants as well as experience the sounds and smells of the African bush accompanied by your expert guide and scout. You will also be able to enjoy romantic bush dinners under the stars which the camp love to organize – often these are down by the river and the table is surrounded by gently flickering spirit lamps.
After a flight via Dar es Salaam you arrive in Pemba, Mozambique. Here you will be met and flown by helicopter over azure blue waters dotted with islands encircled by white sand beaches.
When you arrive you will be shown to your spacious and tranquil villa at Azura Quilalea; all the villas have sea views. Enjoy romantic sundowners on the deck, and great snorkeling and diving on the lodge’s house reef. For those wishing for some real seclusion, we can organize a beach dinner under the stars, the beach lit only by lanterns and candles.

When to go
Tanzania is a large country, with a varied climate. Generally, the long rains run from March to May - the temperature is warm and the humidity is high. June to October is the long dry season, and the short rains are in November and December, much lighter than the long rains. January and February are again dry (the short dry season) so this is another good time to visit.
Amara Selous is closed for the months of April and May.
