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.

Guide & Scout training in the Selous

We have had the pleasure of having Richard Knocker here in the Selous with us for the past week. He has been working with all of our guides and scouts on all aspects of guiding and bush life. Below you can see one of his sessions on rifle handling. 

I have to say, the Selous is a magical place for training like this!

(Guides really have to be on top form in the Selous. The amount of acitivites our guides and scouts conduct here is much more than any National Park in Tanzania. From full day bush walks, to taking clients on the river, to game drives around the lakes and to a visit to the Hot Springs, our guides have accrued a vast wealth of knowledge of the area).

(Our guides and scouts love these trainings and jump at the opportunity to learn)

(Using an old cardbox box on a pully as a charging Buffalo. Always good to practice!)

(What has caught the attention of the group? Tiny insects of course! It is good to know about all aspects of the bush)

Stay tuned for more on the season ahead!
