Sand Rivers Selous

Life in the Selous Game Reserve

Hi. We live and work in the Selous Game Reserve, overlooking a wide bend in the Rufiji River. People from all over the world visit us, and tell us how lucky we are to live here. We're inclined to believe them.

Black and Blue All Over

The migration may be in full swing in the north, but the wildebeest in the south are making sure we dont forget about them, giving us some lovely close-up encounters not far from camp. 

Africa has two species of wildebeest, black wildebeest more commonly found in South Africa, and blue wildebeest native to our neck of the woods in East Africa. 

It doesn't take a genius to guess that the main distinguishing feature of these two species is their colouring. The blue wildebeest have largely remained the same, while the black adapted to the grassier habit of the south nearly one million years ago. This fellow is a stunning specimen of the blue wildebeest, and we must say that we are rather fond of our blue ones.
