Sand Rivers Camp is an idyllic place from which to explore this untamed wilderness.
The Rufiji River is the largest waterway in East Africa and the lifeline of the Selous Game Reserve and its many tributaries and lakes.
The river provides a refreshing viewpoint from which to watch the wildlife going about its business.
All the stone and thatched rooms are open-fronted at Sand Rivers Camp, and raised up on the banks of the river, all with amazing views. There are three room options at Sand Rivers Camp:
Standard cottages: There are five standard rooms which are open and airy, with en-suite bathrooms, flush toilets, powerful showers, and hot and cold running water.
Suites (Tagalala & Kipalala): The two suites offer more private space; as well as a large bedroom and en-suite bathroom there is a lounge area, and small plunge pool set into the deck.
The Rhino House: This is the new one-bedroom honeymoon cottage. It has a large bedroom, en-suite bathroom, lounge and open dining area for private meals. It also comes with its own 4WD vehicle and private guide to take you out on your own game drives as and when you wish.
The main mess and dining area is set close to the river, and is a generous space. It’s grand yet cosy, the atmosphere is familiar, and the service at-your-whim.
