Overlooking Rufiji River

With a reputation as one of the best camps in Tanzania with great accommodation and guiding.

Set in the heart of the Selous Game Reserve, Sand Rivers overlooks a wide curve in the Rufiji River. The open-air curved swimming pool sits under a large baobab tree and affords panoramic views of the river and wilderness beyond.

Sand Rivers has five open-fronted standard Riverside rooms and three open-fronted Hillside suites with small plunge pools. All rooms are made of stone and thatch raised on platforms - two of which are adjoining rooms, perfect for families (one child in the adjoining room needs to be at least 12 years, the other child a minimum of 8 years).

All of the rooms at Sand Rivers have bathrooms en-suite with hot and cold running water, flush toilets and powerful showers. Throughout the camp the soft furnishings are comfortable with cushions, large sofas and chairs. A mix of white washed and stone walls, carved wooden furniture and African decorations, give a rustic yet homely and relaxed atmosphere.

Kiba Point is a four bedroom private camp just down the river - sleeping up to 10 people it is perfect for families or groups of friends.

Safaris operate in 4x4 vehicles, exploring the plains and lakeshores of the reserve. Motorboat trips up the towering Steigler's Gorge are on offer, as are downstream boat safaris, to view hippo and crocodiles. Superb, for a family adventure.

Other activities available include walking safaris (for 12 years and over), fishing, or a relaxing soak in the Tagalala Hot Springs. Families with children 12 years and over can also try ‘fly-camping’ – a rare opportunity to forego a night of ‘comfort’ for a night out under the stars in an especially adapted mosquito net.
