Exploring the history, geography, flora and fauna of the Selous

Flying into the Selous is incredible. From palm filled forests to baobab strewn open plains and crusty soda lakes to the mighty Rufiji River, a myriad of landscapes cover what has been described as the last true wilderness of Africa. We were right into the action immediately as from the airstrip to the lodge we bumped into zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, impala and warthog. My good friends, Mike and Carol, gave us a fabulous welcoming before we settled into our rooms overlooking the River.
