Sand Rivers Selous
Sand Rivers is set on a rocky peninsula with great views over the Rufiji river in Tanzania’s famous Selous Game Reserve. It offers a unique blend of classic safari elegance combined with the ruggedness of a genuine bush adventure, as it overlooks the river full of hippos and crocs.
Now a World Heritage Site, The Selous Game Reserve is home to a diverse selection of wild animals and birdlife, and the varied topography unique to this area of the reserve, makes Sand Rivers Selous a hub for safari buffs and nature lovers.
Open-top Land Rovers ensure comfort and style while on game drives. Taking a riverboat upstream ensures a closer look at the hippos, crocs, monkeys and birds, and a breakfast on the river bank is not to be missed.
Also available is the Selous Walking Safari – a 4-day wilderness walk in the truly remote parts of the park, and a visit to the nearby Tagalala Hot Springs, which bubble warm water throughout the year.
Overnight fly camping is a specialty at Sand Rivers, offering an opportunity to experience a night ‘out in the open’, in especially adapted mosquito nets under the night sky. Each guest group has access to their own private vehicle, and their dedicated guide is on hand at all times.
