Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Sand Rivers Selous

overview

Safari Highlights

Sand Rivers is the most isolated lodge in Selous. Overlooking a wide, sandy bend of the Rufiji River, this luxury safari lodge is situated in the wild southwest of the reserve.

Sand Rivers has been called the 'Vogue magazine' of lodges. Eight stone and makuti rooms, each with their own private verandah overlooking the river, offer airy and elegant relaxation after an early morning bush walk. Each room is comfortably furnished, with large beds and luxurious bathrooms, but all make the most of their panoramic aspects and cooling breezes which come off the river. The excellent food and friendly staff only serve to make guests feel even more privileged to have stumbled across this hidden gem in Tanzania's southern circuit.

Your days at Sand Rivers will be spent exploring the bush around the nearby lakes, or the wide sandbanks of the river itself. Set off on foot, by vehicle, or by boat - the choice is yours. The lodge offers trips to nearby Stiegler's Gorge, a well-known spot for leopard sightings, as well as some nearby hot springs. The reserve is an important sanctuary for the African wild dog, and spotting a roaming pack of these highly endangered predators is a highlight for any Selous based safari. But make sure you take time out from your safari activities to while away some hours on your private verandah, enjoying the sights and sounds of the river, as this can be just as rewarding as time out in the bush.
