      Sand Rivers Selous

      Explore Africa's Largest Game Reserve

      Covering 28,000 square miles of wilderness, with grassy plains, open woodland, mountains and forests, the Selous Game Reserve, named after the great explorer and hunter, Frederick Courtney Selous, is Africa's largest game reserve. It's about three times the size of South Africa's Kruger National Park, and twice the size of the Serengeti National Park. In a fitting tribute, it's also one of Tanzania's three World Heritage Sites. Sand Rivers has a wonderful position deep inside the Selous Game Reserve, overlooking a wide curve in the Rufiji River. It has a long-standing reputation as one of Tanzania's best camps, with luxurious accommodation, pleasant views and generally excellent guiding. Life at Sand Rivers is relaxed, with each day planned specifically for each individual guest as desired. The staff has a great love and knowledge of the game reserve and want each guest to experience the best the area has to offer. The lounge and dining area are situated in an open-sided thatched boma on the edge of the Rufiji River. The mix of white-washed and stone walls, carved wooden furniture, luxurious soft furnishings and African decorations, the result is a rustic yet homely and relaxed atmosphere. A curved swimming pool is located adjacent to the lounge area with panoramic views of the river and wilderness beyond. Sand Rivers also has a small curio shop which sells a variety of items. Sand Rivers Selous’ accommodations are comprised of eight open-fronted cottages made of stone and thatch and raised on platforms overlooking the river. All rooms have king-sized beds covered by delicately draped mosquito netting and earth tone fabrics, as well as a ceiling fan. Plug sockets are dispersed throughout the cottage for recharging batteries. En-suite bathrooms are open-fronted with white stone floors and great views provide hot and cold running water, flush toilets and powerful showers. At Sand Rivers, numerous activities are included with your accommodation. Game driving in 4x4 vehicles are a great way to cover a bit of distance to get the best views, access and photographic opportunities. Walking safaris provide a sense of spontaneity and adventure, enabling guests and guides to participate in the environment without affecting the game’s movements. In contrast, boating safaris on the Rufiji River provide spectacular surprises, as the game comes to you.

        Off-Road Game Viewing

        In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road.
