A hidden pearl on the
banks of the Rufiji river.
The property features 5 riverside rooms and 3 hillside suites with private pools.
Whether you want to dine inside or outside, the dining area offers a captivating view of the Rufiji river. All meals are served here. From breakfast, buffet lunch to both communal and private dinners.
Sand Rivers also features a large pool and a wifi lounge area.
Why not enjoy the first meal of the day on a sandbar in a crocodile-crowded river? The lodge will pack your breakfast and other necessities and have the boat ready for you first thing in the morning – all you need to bring is a camera and sunscreen. Don’t forget to grab a sweater if you get cold easily, like me.

From time to time you might even have a cute harmless visitor like a bush baby or even a monkey, it’s therefore important to remember not to leave any food outside the so called “monkey-box”, which you can use to store food.
There’s nothing like thrill of knowing that you’re sleeping in an open room – it’s more adventurous and it definitely takes you closer to nature.
Since the room is open access it helps turning off the light to prevent insects coming in at night.
