About Sand Rivers Selous

Sand Rivers Selous is beautifully situated on the banks of the Rufiji River south of Lake Tagalala, in the north of the Selous Game Reserve.

The stylish and luxurious cottages lie under large trees and overlook the beautiful Rufiji River.

Under a large baobab tree lies the swimming pool, overlooking the river.

The property

Sand Rivers Selous has eight stone cottages with thatched roof, all open at the front and on elevated wooden platforms overlooking the river.
