Selous Game Reserve - Sand Rivers Selous

Spend 4 nights in the Selous Game Reserve at Sand Rivers Selous.
 
Days at sand rivers are about exploring - we use cars, boats and our own feet to access the hidden gems that define this exceptional part of the selous. Life at Sand Rivers is relaxed and while you're with us we'll work with you to plan your days as you go.  This is an area we know and love, and it matters to us that you get to see the best of it.

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.
