Sand Rivers Selous is set on a scenic bend in the Rufiji River, within the vast Nyerere National Park in southern Tanzania. There are just 8 guest cottages at this enchanting safari lodge, equipped with luxuries such as powerful showers with hot and cold water. All are open-fronted to appreciate the views, the cool breeze as well as the many sights and sounds of the African bush.

A central bar and dining room provide an atmospheric setting to swap safari tales over an icy cold drink, whilst the main pool is a source of refreshment on warm afternoons. A fleet of open-sided 4X4 vehicles are utilised for gameviewing in the wildlife-rich Nyerere, with the option to hop out and walk to get a better vantage point. There is also the option of fly camping, where guests have the opportunity to explore on foot with an armed ranger, and spend a night sleeping out under the stars.

Other things to do including boat safaris along the Rufiji, which is often frequented by huge flocks of birds and large numbers of elephant. You could also drop a line and fish for dinner, or simply enjoy a quiet lunch and a book on the shady riverbank, watching the animals come and go.
