The camp design features 8 open-fronted rooms for maximum comfort – wonderful beds, plenty of space and spectacular showers. The camps goal is to not lose that connection with the African bush, which is why each room has panoramic views out over the river. The only noises to be heard at night at Sand River are those of the wildlife while the space ensures natural light and a cooling breeze that comes in off the water.

The 8 stone and thatched cottages all sit atop raised decks overlooking the river. There are 5 Riverside rooms – with en-suite bathrooms, hot and cold running water, flush toilets and powerful showers – and 3 Hillside Suites featuring the same amenities with a large living space and a small plunge pool.
