Beho Beho Bushblog – Heribert – 22 Sep


It’s been a while since I last blogged, and a lot of my blogs have been about the Selous and the diversity of species herein. This time however, I have some exciting news to share with you all.

On the 22nd of August I made a commitment, one that will be with me to the end of my time. After a handful of headaches and stressful few months, I finally tied the knot with the most beautiful bride.


In Tanzania weddings are big, just looking at the immediate family the numbers can hit 100, put friends and other distant relatives the numbers are usually in the hundreds. Our day was approximate of 400 strong. I had roughly a month and a half to run around and get the wedding organised and finally the day came and with the help of a determined committee we pulled it through.


A typical Roman Catholic wedding, we had the church ceremony at a parish where I grew up, a moment of pride for my dad as I was the last one. I am the last of nine in our family and they all have been through the process.


After church came the fun part, a reception outdoors in a lovely garden and here we drunk and ate and danced, the happiest day in my life. We then had a few days to recover from all the stress in Zanzibar.


It wasn’t long before I had to get back to work and here I am back to doing what I do best with my other half in mind.


I would like to pass my sincere thanks to Mr. Charlie, Mr. George and the entire Oyster Bay and Beho Beho family for giving me the support and guidance I needed. Each and every one of you whether directly or indirectly played a part.


To my Family, mere words cannot really express how thankful I am for the support, help, guidance and acceptance of the new member (My wife) to the family.


Well I could write all the details but this might take forever. I hope this little I have shared gives a bit of picture. Until next time.
