GUIDE ON SAND RIVER SELOUS IN TANZANIA
Set on a branch of the Rufiji River, not far from the scenic Beho Beho Hills, “Maji Moto” hot sulfur springs and the grave of Frederick Courtney Selous, the soldier and adventurer after whom the reserve was named, Sand River Selous offers an individually tailored African safari experience to lovers of wilderness and high adventure. “Maji Moto” simply means “hot water” in Kiswahili, so the name recurs in other volcanic regions of Tanzania. Sand River Selous is a fabulous wilderness lodge built on one of Richard Bonham’s favored camp sites in the wilds of Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania. Richard, son of Kenya’s pioneer game warden spent many years leading portered safaris through Selous, and was convinced that the Sand River location was the most beautiful site he had ever found. Eventually Sand River Camp was built to realize his dream of sharing his love for the area with the discerning visitors, and today benefiting AfricanMecca guests on holiday in Tanzania with maximal wildlife experiences. Selous Game Reserve is an area of unspoiled wilderness more than 55,000 square kilometers in extent, of which the Northern strip of interconnected rivers, internal deltas and oxbow lakes form a perfect environment in which to enjoy unique opportunities for bush activities including boating, fishing and superlative birding not possible in more popular and highly regulated National Parks in Tanzania. It is a magnificent sanctuary for vast herds of thousands of elephant, buffalo and many species of ungulates, assorted antelopes, cheeky monkeys and prides of lions, not to mention African wild or painted dogs and over 350 species of birds. Reached by air and vigorously on road from Dar Es Salaam, it offers a luxurious, relaxing environment laced with high adventure, making your Selous trip the highlight of a lifetime.

We have returned from our African adventure and would like to thank you very much for your part in making this such a wonderful experience. We were lucky enough to time the Great Migration from the Serengeti, which was amazing.
Denise Paterson - Belmont, Australia
We had an absolutely unforgettable time. Both our guides were outstanding with so much knowledge. At Selous Game Reserve, we found a group of wild dogs cooling off near a pool of water. The safari was everything we had hoped for.
Gunnar and Liz Kristiansen - Ontario, Canada
I booked my safari holiday through AfricanMecca. They were the most helpful company I have ever dealt with and I work within the travel industry. I had the most amazing time. The holiday went as clockwork with no hitches anywhere.
Shelley Roberts - Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom
AfricanMecca's professionalism and care understands that what distinguishes Africa is its authenticity, the land, people and wildlife who do not share our world of fashion and fanfare that distinguish so many travel companies today.
