Things to do at Sand Rivers Selous

Guided game drives in open 4x4 vehicles and walks are just some of the activities you can enjoy at Sand River Selous in Tanzania.

Boating and Walking Safaris

Sand Rivers Selous offers many varied Selous safari activities, such as motorboat trips up the towering Steigler's Gorge. On a Selous safari in Tanzania, walks are concentrated around the early morning and late afternoons, with opportunities for fishing, and relaxing in the middle of the day. Shorter walks are offered as an afternoon activity, starting at 4pm and continuing to return to camp around sunset.

Game Drives and Other Safari Activities

Most popular are the camp's 4WD safaris, which explore the plains and lakeshores. The morning game drives begin at around 7am, returning at midday for lunch. An afternoon Selous safari in Tanzania will head out again at 4pm. You can combine a 4WD safari with a short walking safari. Other options include fishing, or a relaxing soak in the Tagalala Hot Springs.

Game Viewing From a Hide

Sand Rivers Selous also has a nearby hide – raised up on stilts, and overlooking a large marshy area. This permanently wet area is frequented by a variety of African wildlife – from Elephant and herds of Giraffe coming down to drink, to a kaleidoscope of birds searching for food.

Fly Camping

Explore the remotest corners of the Selous Game Reserve over a set period, with fly camps moving every night. Walk through magical and diverse landscapes, seeing things not always visible from a vehicle. Each day is designed to be different, and to offer unrivalled exposure to the area.
