overview

Sand Rivers Selous is an intimate safari lodge in Tanzania's Selous Game Reserve, set on a rocky peninsula with views over the Rufiji River. The lodge offers a unique blend of classic safari elegance combined with the ruggedness of a genuine bush adventure, overlooking the river that is brimming with hippos and crocodiles.

Explore this reserve – a World Heritage Site – that is home to a wide variety of wild animals and birdlife and varied terrain. Set off on game drives in open-top vehicles, take a riverboat upstream, or enjoy a 4-day walking safari. For something truly memorable, you can even experience overnight fly-camping.

Other Room Types

Just near the main lodge set on the hillside, there are three beautifully built stone and thatch suites. Enjoy the stunning views from these open-front suites as you sit in your private lounge area. Wake up each morning in a large king-sized bed after a relaxing night in your plunge pool set with views over the river.
