Sand Rivers Selous

Sand Rivers Selous is located in the remote heart of Nyerere National Park (formerly the Selous Game Reserve) in Southern Tanzania, on the banks at the mile-wide point of the Rufiji River.

Accommodation at Sand Rivers Selous consists of eight spacious open-fronted cottages raised on high concrete platforms. There are five Standard Riverside rooms and three Hillside Suites. All rooms and suites have en-suite bathrooms, with flush toilets, powerful showers and hot and cold running water. The three Hillside Suites have an additional lounge area and private plunge pool. All rooms and suites have standing fans and epic views out over the river.

Children over the age of eight are allowed at Sand Rivers Selous. However, fly camping and walking safaris are only for children over the age of 12.

This area of Nyerere National Park affords great opportunities for game viewing by vehicle, on foot and by boat and they make the most of all of them. You can enjoy picnics, fishing, trips to the hot springs and fly camping. The area is quiet without many other camps and so is perfect for full immersion in the bush.

Fly-camping is a highly recommended part of any safari to Sand Rivers Selous, and is available at an extra supplement. The fly camps are shared, and guests sleep under spacious mosquito net tents. A bucket shower with hot water, and short-stop toilets are set up behind camp. A full complement of staff provide a full breakfast, light lunch, and 3-course candlelit dinner.
