Hi. We live and work in the Selous Game Reserve, overlooking a wide bend in the Rufiji River. People from all over the world visit us, and tell us how lucky we are to live here. We're inclined to believe them.
At Sand Rivers we have a very good relationship with the local airlines, and in particular Coastal Aviation, as they fly here the most. We meet the pilots often as they stay for lunch and sometimes overnight in between flights. We know it’s a long day for a bush pilot with no shops nearby so we send a care parcel of delicious sandwiches and fruit to the airstrip on hot days.
However we need not forget the office and ground staff based in Dar es Salaam who work so hard for us; updating us on guests flight times, flying out staff at last minute requests and always making sure our guests are well looked after. So, to show our appreciation for all their efforts our wonderful Chef Bernadetta baked some cookies and muffins which we sent to them. They were so chuffed with Bernie’s baking that they’ve ordered a chocolate cake for the next round!
