Sand Rivers has a breathtaking location on the banks of the Rufiji, Tanzania’s largest river. The lodge sleeps 16 guests in open fronted, thatched cottages, with splendid views over the river and surrounding bush.
It has a reputation for exceptional standards of guiding, which you experience during day and night drives and game walks. Sand Rivers is known for boat safaris, including the stunning, 100-metre-deep Stiegler’s Gorge, and for walking safaris with excellent fly-camping.
Camp in the wild, with only your guide or “Askari” to watch over your make-shift room on the river bank. It is exhilarating going to sleep with a sheer mosquito net between you and elements, while listening to the sound of hippos grunting in the waters and the eerie nightjar calling or the cacophony of laughing hyena’s on the hunt. An unforgettable adventure.
