Sand River Selous is in a stunning location on the banks of the Rufiji river in the vast Selous Game Reserve. The stone and thatch cottages, raised on decks and open-fronted, overlook the river.

Enjoy game driving in the open-sided 4×4 vehicles, go on a walking safari or a boat safari down the Rufiji River  – a wonderful contrast to game viewing from a vehicle.
