There are eight rooms set in pairs along the river bank. Each of the chalets are approximately 150 sq. metres and are completely open fronted, with expansive views directly onto the giant Rufiji River. Beneath the high vaulted ceilings, the rooms have huge beds and a spacious bathroom, with hot water powered by solar energy.
Guests can take a morning or afternoon game drive or take a picnic lunch and head off for full day drive. Guests can chose to take a flat bottomed aluminium boat and drift downstream game viewing and bird watching, or alternatively take the boat upstream to Steigler's Gorge.
Here, the river narrows into a deep rocky gorge where leopard can often be seen and the landscape changes dramatically. The shaded rocks and sands along the river banks make perfect picnic spots and somewhere to cast a line for a fearsome tiger fish.
For the more adventurous, fly camping offers the outdoor safari experience of a lifetime. Mosquito nets laid out on the sand banks or nearby a busy waterhole. Simple yet fully equipped, these camps have ice cold drinks, great food, comfortable bedrolls, and toilets & showers set well behind the camp. The perfect marriage of intrepid adventure and bush comfort. Each camping spot is specially chosen for its view or the game in the area and allows you to completely absorb yourself in the Selous wilderness.
Each fly-camp is managed by a team of staff. On your arrival you will find a fully stocked bar has been set up with cold drinks and ice, and then after a steaming bush shower set up under a tree, you are served a three course dinner set at a table laid under the stars.
It is the quality of its walking safaris that has earned Sand Rivers its reputation as one of the foremost lodges in Africa.
