My highlights are crossing at Finfoot and Taylor’s crossing when the river is quite full. It is exciting driving through the river. The elephants, the crocodile in the pool at Founders camp deck. The birdlife at the causeway. The hippos. The nyala and bushbuck. A brief glimpse of a leopard from the deck. A walk next to the river with the rangers. The Tsalala pride and Magingilane on a buffalo kill right in front of Founders deck in the river. So many good memories.

Thank you Jemma for bringing us lovely images and descriptive quotes that honor World Rivers Day and the Sand River in particular …. truly a life line to all the creatures who dwell in Londolozi and a place to capture exquiste images.

A perfect river to honor on World’s River Day. It is beautiful, magical and mysterious. I have a few videos that I replay from my trips that always relax and move me.

The Sand River is magical at all times of the year. I have many special moments both in and next to it but my favorite is Christmas Day, 2000, when four of us shared a special champagne brunch on the beach, next to the river. Sun shining, glasses of bubbly, warm croissants and only sounds of rippling water and chirping birds – heaven!!

Thank you for your beautiful take on this astounding river …. I remember being completely desperate seeing it in October 2016 without any water in it, which was the first time in over 20 years of visiting

Thanks for your comment Marianna. Unfortunately the river is not flowing significantly just yet, however we are only just coming out of the dry season. Holding thumbs for more rain!
