Sand Rivers is perched high on a rocky peninsula in the spectacular Nyerere National Park (formerly called the Selous Game Reserve). One of our favourite camps.

This property epitomises the essence of Nyerere National Park. A seriously well-run camp that has an incredibly well-established reputation. Fantastic for walking safaris and boating trips.

Accommodation at Sand Rivers

Guest accommodation comprises eight cottages, all elevated and constructed using timber, stone, and thatch. Five are named Riverside Rooms, and the remaining three are called Hillside Suites - which are slightly higher in elevation.

All the suites are entirely open-fronted; they boast magnificent views over the river and its resident hippo. Each bedroom contains a king-size bed (equipped with mosquito nets), bedside lighting. They all have private plunge pools too! En-suite facilities include a flush toilet, washbasin -with hot and cold running water- and a walk-in shower.

Facilities at Sand Rivers

Sand Rivers’ communal spaces offer spectacular vistas of the River Rufiji. The lounge contains the most comfortable armchairs and sofas around coffee tables, some reading material and intriguing artworks. In the dining area, separate tables are positioned in the best spots for the views. A short distance from the lodge, there’s the pool equipped with sun loungers and deckchairs - the perfect place to relax between activities and enjoy the river and its inhabitants, mammals and birds alike!

Food at Sand Rivers

Breakfast and lunches are flexible and the level of food is superb, normally served as a buffet. Private dining is available at various locations around camp.

ACTIVITIES AT SAND RIVERS:
  • Big Five viewing
