I have just come back to the bush after being away from camp (Selous) for a year for studies. Everything at the college went well except I was missing Selous so much. I’m so exciting to be back. My flight was nice and I did enjoy it because we stopped all lower Selous airstrips. I was happy to see Rufiji River, lake Mzizimia, lake Siwandu, lake Mzerekera, lake Manze and Tagalala when I was on the plane (it was like a plane tour for me). I have done a few game drives so far, there are few changes in the bush and it has been fantastic to see the scenery, birds and animals. I have seen big herds of Buffalo, nice Elephants, Elands, Hippo, Zebra, Waterbuck, Baboon, Blue monkey, Lions, Warthog, Impala and Giraffe. Also I have done one boating at lake Tagalala, there is plenty of water but there are still many birds Hippos and Crocodile. When we were boating we saw Pied kingfishers nests (holes in the cliff). At Sean’s cliff we saw the nest of a white fronted bee-eater and Elephants have started to dig in the riverbed for water. In general the bush is beautiful especially in the morning at sunrise and evening at sunset with the combination of sunlight, palm trees and golden grasses.
