Sand Rivers Selous, Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania

They designed their 8 open-fronted rooms here for maximum comfort - wonderful beds, plenty of space and probably the best showers you'll have come across for a while - but they didn't want to lose that connection with the African bush which has so inspired them.

This is why each room has panoramic views out over the river, why they go to great trouble to make sure that the only noises you hear are those of the wildlife and why they took particular care to make the most of the natural light, space and cooling breeze that comes off in the water.

Highlights: The sights and sounds of the river and the great variety of adventures to be had along its banks and the surrounding woodlands and open sand rivers. Sleeping in open-fronted rooms and being close to nature while enjoying all the comforts of a conventional lodge, and being completely safe. Fabulous sightings of the river's residents and great birding as well as lots of big mammals; visits to Stieglers Gorge, Kidai Island, Hot Springs and Lake Tagalala.

Guided Walks



It was while leading a portered walking safari through this part of the world in the 80s that Richard stumbled upon this particular bend of the Rufiji River. Straightaway he knew he'd found somewhere special.

He'd spent months crossing the whole African continent by river and walked extensively throughout the Southern Selous, so he had some grounds for confidence in his judgement.

Building a lodge was far from his mind at that point, but when - many years later - with many more miles of the Selous under his belt, the chance came to replace his beloved old (and by that time decrepit) base camp with something a little more permanent, he knew for a fact that there was nowhere better to be.
