Sand Rivers Selous, located high on a rocky peninsula in the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania were some of the first to introduce the idea of fly-camping to the world. Essentially, fly-camping involves sleeping out in the wilderness with minimal facilities. It is the ultimate form of connecting to the African bush and exploring deep into off the beaten track spaces.

This bucket list experience at Sand Rivers Selous typically involves a walking safari during the day, observing large and small animals on foot. A comfortable tent, hot water bucket shower, and delicious meal awaits at the end of the day and your adventure deep into the wilderness. Evenings are best enjoyed around a crackling fire under a blanket of stars listening to the nocturnal calls of the bush. There is nothing quite like it in the world.
