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.
The Selous has greened up over the past few weeks and there is life all around. We have clients on the river and others on a game drive around the lakes, so this is the perfect time for us to do a cheeky game drive. We head into the Miombo woodland and it doesn't take long for us to spot these Lions. We park the car and make a coffee and spend the next few hours photographing them. The perfect start to the day.
(Due to the heat in the Selous, males dont grow large manes. Infact, some dont grow any at all).

(They were comfortable with me getting out and photographing them from under the car).
