Dear Tootlepip3, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of Azura Selous Game Reserve. We do appreciate your honest feedback and will take all the points you raised into consideration for the future. You'll be pleased to know that we have had some rain since your stay and it has already started transforming the landscape as little green shoots are popping up everywhere. We are glad to hear that you were impressed with the service and food and Joseph will be chuffed that he was able to share some of his knowledge with experienced safari guests. We hope you will return to our camp one day to enjoy another safari with us.

Amazing experience - memories made. The lodge is so comfortable and the service from waiters and kitchen staff to gane drivers is superlative. The staff arranged different dining scenarios every breakfast and dinner - some in the bush. To sleep and wake to the sound of the

Dear Charlotte, It is wonderful to hear that you had such a memorable stay at Azura Selous Game Reserve. Dining under the shade of a tree or the starry night sky is a great way to experience all the sights and sounds of the bush. And our resident hippos always leave a lasting impression on our guests. We couldn't agree more - falling asleep or waking up to the sounds of the hippos grunting is magical. We hope you'll return to make some more memories with us soon.

Dear PaulJoiner, Thank you for sharing your experience of Azura Selous Game Reserve with us. We are fortunate to be located in one of the most scenic parts of the Selous and guests frequently comment on the excellent food our kitchen produces. Game viewing can be unpredictable with a number of factors affecting it, but our guides always go the extra mile to ensure our guests have a good experience with us. Your comments about the lodge will certainly be taken into consideration going forward. Once again, we appreciate your review and hope you stay with us again some day.

"There were lizards and spiders in the room so you have to keep your suitcases zipped with your clothes inside."
"5 and 6 are closest to the central lodge, 1 and 12 are furthest. "
