Accommodation at Sand Rivers is in spacious open-fronted cottages raised on the banks of the Rufiji River. There are 5 Standard rooms, 2 Suites, and the honeymoon cottage - The Rhino House. All have en-suite bathrooms, with flush toilets, powerful showers and hot and cold running water.
The five standard rooms at Sand Rivers Selous have been recently upgraded. There are newly-designed river facing bathrooms, and fresh new interiors in the bedrooms. All the rooms are open-fronted with spectacular views out over the river, and surrounding woodland.
Tagalala & Kipalala Suites
The Suites are built of stone and thatch, and both are within walking distance of the main lodge. The rooms are expansive, and openfronted with large king-size beds, and a private lounge area. A plunge pool overlooks the river. All meals are served in the main dining room at Sand Rivers Selous, and all activities are shared. The Suites offer more private space; the rooms are fabulously stylish and welcoming, and the private pool is the perfect place to retreat to in the heat of the day.
The Rhino House
This is the private ‘honeymoon’ house; a one-bedroom cottage set high up above Sand Rivers, looking way out over the Rufiji River and surrounding woodland. The living space is generous and stylish; the large open-fronted bedroom has a king-sized bedroom and en-suite bathroom. Guests can choose private dining, at a time to suit, and the plunge pool has a well-stocked mini-bar close at hand. A private 4WD vehicle and guide are on hand to take you out on game drives, and they also offer walks (shared with guests at the main lodge) and the option of exclusive fly camping, available at a supplement). It’s the perfect hideaway for two, offering total bush bliss, day and night, and the greatest luxury of all: a private piece of the great Selous.
