We stayed here for the first 4 nights of a 10 night safari and it could not have been better - well, it could have been less hot... We had a hillside suite with the most welcome and oft used plunge pool, a great view, and a very comfy bed. While dinners could be had privately, I enjoyed sitting at one big table with all the guests and appreciated the care in seating arrangements so each night we sat next to someone different.
Our guide, Ernest, was incredible. There was not a question he could not answer and he had a terrific sense of humor. I highly recommend a night of fly camping as it was truly a highlight.

There were good reasons why this site, overlooking the mile wide Rufiji River, was the only place he wanted to be.At the heart of an intricate network of sand river channels, oxbow lakes and open plains, Sand Rivers opens a window on the private lives of Africa's big mammals. Creep up on elephant as they wallow in hidden lakes; drift silently down the river at dusk or sleep out under the stars at night.With just eight open-fronted rooms looking out over the Rufiji River, Sand Rivers offers variety, spontaneity and a gradual immersion in a seductively wild part of Southern Tanzania. ... more less
