Nestled in greenery above the Rufiji River, Sands Rivers Selous is an earthy, luxury safari lodge situated within the Selous Game Reserve.

Spanning 54,600km², the Selous Game Reserve is the largest private game reserve in all of Africa. Home to tropical forests, sprawling grass plains, majestic mountains and some of the largest animal populations on the continent, the reserve was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 1982 for its pristine nature and diverse wildlife. 

Dedicated safari guides will accompany you as you venture out into the reserve, beginning with a game drive where you'll have the best chance to spot some of the wildlife - keep a lookout for lions and antelopes! For a closer look, you can embark on a walking safari where you'll work with a guide to expertly track elephants and giraffes on foot. But that's not all, you'll have the opportunity to discover what's lurking beneath the water on the river safari where you can anticipate finding basking crocodiles, lounging hippos and swooping fish eagles!
