At the heart of an intricate network of sand river channels, oxbow lakes and open plains, The Sand Rivers Camp opens a window on the private lives of Africa's big mammals. Creep up on elephant as they wallow in hidden lakes; drift silently down the river at dusk or sleep out under the stars at night. With just eight open-fronted rooms looking out over the Rufiji River, Sand Rivers offers variety, spontaneity and a gradual immersion in a seductively wild part of Southern Tanzania.
Sand Rivers Selous has just 8 stone and thatched cottages, all are open-fronted and raised on decks overlooking the river. The 8 open-fronted rooms have been designed for maximum comfort with wonderful beds, panoramic views out over the river, plenty of space and probably the best showers you'll have come across for a while. Spend your time relaxing on the verandahs of the open-fronted rooms, or cooling off in the pool, surrounded by Kingfishers and Bee Eaters, listening to the grunts of hippos on the river, can be time equally well spent.

The main mess is spacious, open-fronted and cool. There's a chill-out area near the library and then acres of dining spots - around the main pool, privately tucked away in a quiet corner of the mess or on the social managers table. Sit around the bar at the end of the day, the drinks are cold and there's always good stories to be told. Sometimes the best way to see game is to let it come to you. Guest can enjoy breakfast on a sand bank in Stigler's Gorge watching elusive monkey-hunting crowned eagles, and listening to shrill cries of Hyraxes as you dangle a hook in the water. Or lunch in the deep shade of palm trees, watching the comings and goings on at the lakeshore: half watching, half reading a book and perhaps even dozing off.
Game drives in open 4WD vehicles, fly camping, walking safaris, boating, fishing.
The sights and sounds of the river and the great variety of adventures to be had along its banks and the surrounding woodlands and open sand rivers. Fabulous sightings of the river's residents and great birding as well as lots of big mammals; visits to Stieglers Gorge, Kidai Island, Hot Springs and Lake Tagalala.
