The whole football team Bærum has been out in the Selous Game Reserve for a couple of days now, and due to a very limited access to internet these posts are a bit delayed – we're sorry.
Having arrived at Jimbiza Lodge, situated beautifully on the banks of the Rufiji river, we've relaxed and enjoyed the Tanzanian climate and hospitality. Everyone has been so excited to go on safaris that they've been up at 05.30 every morning, ready to drive in to the wilderness at 06.00 sharp! Some of the most impressive sights were the lions on day two; the morning started by Hot Springs and we went on a short walk, but it was during our afternoon in safari vehicles the lions were found. Our guides Rashid, Paul and Rama did an amazing job spotting these lions!
Before driving out of the gates we visited the grave of Frederick Selous – a British explorer, officer, hunter, and conservationist, famous for his exploits in Southeast Africa – also whose last name was given to this park. As we saw the gates our guides jumped on the brakes again – more lions!
What a magnificent day this has been, and the days to come will offer just as many incredible things!
Pictures will be added as soon as we have a high-speed internet that can handle these files.
