For sheer drama, the Selous Game Reserve is hard to beat. It is home to such a Noah's ark of wildlife that it's been made a World Heritage Site, and this huge reserve, at a massive 50,000 square kilometres, has given over 1,000 square kilometres in the north, to wildlife and safaris.
It's not what you see, it's how you see it. At Sand Rivers Selous, game viewing takes on a very different, and exciting pace. Whether its game drives, walking safaris, fishing, boating, or a combination of all of these, it never disappoints, and there is always something thrilling to see.
For the more adventurous, fly-camping offers the outdoor experience of a lifetime, and is one of the most raved about things to do. Mosquito net tents are set up on sandbanks, or near to a busy waterhole. Simple yet fully equipped, these small camps have comfortable bedrolls to curl up in, a short drop toilet and bucket shower just behind, great food, and ice cold drinks; it's the perfect combination of intrepid adventure and bush comfort.
Of course, you might just choose to stay in the lodge itself, and loll by the pool, play games in the mess with an iced cocktail in hand, or read books on your own veranda.
Accommodation at Sand Rivers Selous is in spacious open-fronted cottages made of stone and thatch, and raised up on the banks of the Rufiji with amazing views out across the river. There are 5 Riverside Rooms, and 3 Hillside Suites.
The suites and the rooms all have spacious, open, en-suite bathrooms, with flush toilets and powerful showers. The suites have their own private lounge area, and plunge pools set into the main deck.
