Sand Rivers Selous

Life in the Selous Game Reserve

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.

Off with the old, on with the new

As the new year kicks in and we say goodbye to 2017, we also say goodbye to Eric and Natasha who are moving to our sister camp in the beautiful Serengeti – Lamai. They have left a wonderful camp for us to take over with all systems in place and very little for us to worry about – a well-oiled ship, I would say.

One of the things we love about being camp managers for Nomad is that every couple of years the managers move to another camp, Julien from Mahale is now here at Sand Rivers, Elisaria is here from Chada and so on, a domino effect of us all moving around, giving us a chance to work in all the amazing corners of Tanzania we love so much. We also have the opportunity to visit each other on our days off as we are not just colleagues, we have become great friends, a tight team. We are all passionate about one thing. Living in the bush close to nature and the wild sounds that soothe us at night.

After a fun months hand over, Julien, Elisaria and myself are now officially the new Managers at this beautiful, very special camp. One of the oldest camps in Tanzania (23 years) its seen a lot of managers pass through and we are honoured to call it our home for the next few years…

Tash and Eric – we are so grateful for our time spent together in the office cove, watching the crocodiles and hearing the noisy hippos whilst teaching us the SRS ropes. Thank you so much - you are welcome to visit us anytime…

So, from myself, Julien and Elisaria we would like to say Happy New year and please come visit us and see all we have to offer. Not only do we have the incredible wildlife and river safaris but there is so much history in this reserve where WW1 was fought. This year being the 100th year anniversary of the end of WW1 in 1918.

Watch this space for exciting offers in 2018!!
