The grand dame of the Selous Safari circuit, along with Beho Beho, Sand Rivers Selous is the longest running safari camp and is also, still, one of the best. One of the major selling points is the location....set right on the banks of the Rufiji River, it is possible to sip a G&T looking both east and west along this picturesque river. For those looking for scenic beauty then this is it!


Set out to the west of the park (in the northern, safari region of the Selous), Sand Rivers enjoys a privileged position, away from the relatively busy central region of Manze and Siwandu.


The camp itself now offers a range of different variations to clients. The main camps is still going strong with its fantastic chalets looking directly onto the water. While they are not vast in size, there is no doubt that they are large enough and the views certainly make up for any shortcomings otherwise.


The suite rooms, located up on the hill, are for those wanting to get away from the main camp and feature wonderfully open rooms with lounge areas and private plunge pools. The view form up here is simply outstanding and while a bit of a walk to the main areas, is definitely worth the exercise.

Finally, Sand Rivers now offers the Rhino House and Kiba point....one being a private house and the other a private camp with 4 suites. Both of these are ideal for those looking to have a camp to themselves and feature private guides and activities that are not tied to the main camp.


From a game point of view, this is one of our favourite regions of the park. Being on the river obviously allows for plenty of water activities, but there are also some interesting "bai" areas nearby where game tends to congregate in the dry season. All in all a great camp!
