With it’s position on the banks of the Great Ruaha River in the Selous Game Reserve, sunsets at Azura Selous Game Reserve are always impressive. Best enjoyed with a sundowner in one hand and plate of nibbles, you’ll lose all track of time as you share tales of the days’ sightings with your travel companions. A sunset in Africa is a treat for all the senses: the smell of the bush, the sight of the massive sky streaked with red and orange, the taste of juniper berries from your gin and tonic, the touch of a warm breeze on your skin and the sound of the nocturnal wildlife stirring to life as the evening begins. You couldn’t imagine a more thrilling way to watch the sunset.
Sunset is a magical time, when day turns to night and the colors in the sky glow with amber hues that morph miraculously before your eyes – then in a split second it is gone, leaving you with a sense of wonder. There is nowhere better to absorb the shards of light during that golden hour than at Elewana Elsa’s Kopje in Meru National Park, a remote wilderness with several rocky outcrops that lend themselves to the most majestic views over the plains of Meru, stretching as far as the eye can see.
A favorite spot of George and Theresa, the managers at Elewana Elsa’s Kopje, is Rain Kombe with 360 degree views of the park. Another favorite sunset spot with guests is George’s pool, the very place that George Adamson (Of the Born Free story) used to take Elsa the lioness for her afternoon dips. And if you don’t feel like leaving the property, don’t worry – you’re still guaranteed a spectacular sunset experience at ‘Hard Rock Cafe’, a hidden spot on the side of the hill behind the main area, where you can see Mount Kenya in the distance in all its glory. If you’re staying at the Private House, the sunsets are extra special as the colors of the sky are reflected on the infinity swimming pool. Wherever you’re enjoying the sunset, you’re guaranteed a fabulous view and of course, a sundowner in hand.

Ask for a volcano facing banda or a seat in the beautiful outdoor terrace for a view of the most amazing sunset in Rwanda.
