Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Selous

overview

Safari Highlights

Days at Sand Rivers can 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.

Despite such incredible wildlife, surprisingly, and rather pleasingly, the Selous gets few visitors. The lodge is perfectly situated for exploring the surrounding area with game drives in 4 wheel drive open-sided vehicles and daily walking safaris accompanied by an experienced bush guide and armed scout. Bush lunches are served on request – dining beneath the shade of a large acacia tree in the middle of the African savannah is the perfect way to while away the heat of the day.

One of the most exciting opportunities at Sand Rivers is 'flycamping'. (Highly recommended but at a small extra cost - book before arrival to avoid disappointment). Sleeping out in the wild, with an armed guard, flycamping will give you an entirely authentic safari experience away from modernities.
