Sand Rivers Selous has just 8 stone and thatched cottages, all are open-fronted and raised on decks overlooking the river. There are 5 Riverside rooms - with en-suite bathrooms, hot and cold running water, flush toilets and powerful showers - and 3 Hillside Suites. The Suites have all the above, but a large living space and a small plunge pool. Sit around the bar at the end of the day, the drinks are cold and there's always good stories to be told.
The main mess is spacious, open-fronted and cool. There's a chill-out area near the library and then acres of dining spots - around the main pool, privately tucked away in a quiet corner of the mess or on the social managers table.
Located in southern Tanzania and far from the madding crowds, the Selous Game Reserve is Africa's largest game reserve. It really is a hidden gem! The rivers and lakes of the Selous are the lifeblood of a park that hosts some fabulous game, including elephant, wild dog, buffalo, hippo, crocodile and fantastic prides of lion. Standard daytime game drives are just the beginning. The Selous also offers some of the finest boating safaris in Africa, along with some of the very best walking operations on the continent.
