It’s easy to think that safari is just about seeing wild animals in their natural habitat. And yes of course it is, but it is about a whole lot more.
Once you have arrived in the Selous, you soon realize that the beauty of this wilderness is just as breathtaking as its inhabitants.
Most people who have been on a safari, will remember having a “moment”.
Usually at a carefully chosen sundowner spot, where, with a gin and tonic or glass of wine in hand, you move a few metres away from the group and take a quiet moment to stand and marvel at the vast and beautiful landscape, which is, for those brief magic moments drenched in such amazing colours and hues – from the blood red of the setting sun, to subtle violets and everything in-between that it inspires us in awe and a deep contentment!
For many of us, this moment in time can have a profound effect on us and sometimes have spiritual meaning.
And so this week I set myself the task of capturing some of these moments (or at least some of the vistas which inspire them).
So if you are yet to experience this and are coming for the first time soon, here is a taster of what we could see at sundowners and if you have already been, hopefully these pics will help you remember your moment in Selous.
