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.
For the past week now we have been busy sanding and oiling, painting and decorating. The bush tracks are cleared and the guides excited for this seasons new adventures. Our chefs have been busy baking fresh bread, housekeeping has made sure all rooms are set and our waiters have stocked up the fridges.
(Cornelius, our master carpenter, has done an amazing job on all of the wood work in camp)
(Justin, adding the finishing touches to the railing at the dining area)
(We have an amazing tailor in camp, Charles, who has re done all of our couch covers. What a magician with the sewing machine)
(Deo, one of our guides, setting up all of our fishing rods in preperation for the season ahead)
(Our chefs and cooks are excited for our first clients of the season. Fresh bread rolls from the oven, yum!)
(Our newest addition to the kitchen, Mzee Mausa, helping prep for lunch!)
Now, everything is in place and we can't wait to greet our first guests. Let's see what this seasons great adventures will be.
