Happy New Year and I hope you are well regardless of the wet weather in England.
Selous is well, hot and getting dry at the moment but the game have been good
The temperature at this time ranges between 36c to 42c, some days are very hot. This is after the short rains in November and most areas are still green and few water holes remain in the bush. Despite that animals are still found between the airstrip and the two properties. Game viewing on arrival from Stieglers Air strip especially elephants, Impalas and wildebeest were easily spotted and guests were able to see them. For the predator animals guests were able to see during their full day drives in the lower areas of Tagalala, Beho Beho area and lake Manze
Rufiji River sand banks continue to open and crocodiles and baby crocodiles are out for sun and spoil our guest during boat excursions as water lever allows going up stream and down stream for the sun set. Last week Canadian ambassador and his wife on their first day they saw all the game while on boat safari, this was amazing including a lion pride.
Regardless of continuing dry season boat safari has been fantastic due to the chances of viewing animals, downstream you see a lot of animals coming for the water and some time a lion pride relaxing at the river bank while up stream clients experienced nature at its best black rocks, monkeys has been seen often.
Selous Serena Camp.
Regardless of dry season animal have been coming near the Camp for water around the Camp.
Pond in front of the Lobby area has been attracting elephants and other wild animal in the evenings around pool/ bar areas which has been very attractive to guest. Two hippos are still visiting the camp in the evenings.
