David Attenbourgh moments!!!

From the moment we stepped off the plane we knew we were in good hands, and were not disappointed. Our host and hostess, Eric and Natasha, were the epitome of graciousness. They were both extremely welcoming and had no problem answering all of our questions. Sand Rivers as a lodge is in a perfect location, with both rooms and the central area overlooking the river, which was always full of hippo, crocodile, a variety of birds, monkeys and so much more. Our room was beautiful, with stunning views of the river. Despite being warned against the monkeys, we never had an issue and couldn't have felt safer. As for our game drive guide, Hamadi, we couldn't have asked for a more personable, knowledgeable or charming man. He was the reason for some of the most amazing sightings (definite David Attenbourgh moments!!), such as when we came across a pack of wild dog hunting for their next meal! We also saw an abundance of Giraffe, Lion, Impala, Zebra, Bush Buck, Water Buck, with not a single boring moment. We would also recommend if you have the time, to take the opportunity to have breakfast down river amongst the hippo and crocodiles, and take the evening to fish. The food was delicious and the choice to sit around one big table with the rest of the guests made the whole experience even more magical. Myself and my Grandmother can't recommend Sand Rivers, or Nomad Tanzania enough.
