Sand River Selous


Luxury overlooking the Rufiji River

When Richard Bonham built Sand Rivers, he was offered any area in the Northern Selous. There were good reasons why this site, overlooking the mile wide Rufiji River, was the only place he wanted to be.

A small but luxurious first class lodge built on the Northern bank of the Rifiji River at a point called 'Kibambawe' arguably one of the most striking locations in the reserve, with extensive views of the wide stretch of sluggish brown water. Away from the crowds of some of the more mainstream lodges, Sand River Selous offers a quality safari which surpasses many others. Investigate the camp surrounds in search of game on foot, by vehicle or even by boat on the river, it's the highway round these parts. The rooms are well-furnished and beautifully constructed with the best services and first class food. Wildlife is plentiful and much of it passes you by on its way down to the water as you sit patiently and silently on your verandah.

Exploring Diverse Habitats

Sand Rivers area is diverse and it ranges from the riverine forest, Rufiji River and Sand bank, to flood plains, ox bow lakes and deciduous open woodland. Game drives are more exciting especially in the dry season, when the game is concentrated on the rivers, accompanied by enthusiastic and experienced guides you won't miss a thing. Along the dry rivers particularly in the evening, its common to find large herds of giraffe gathering as well as many other species.
