It's that time of year again!  Camp is open and we have spent the last few weeks getting everything ready.  Transporting staff, food and equipment into camp is no small task, especially on the roads to the Selous.  

The roads to Selous

Siwandu is slowly woken from it's seasonal slumber - we close over the long rains and everything is put to bed.  After dusting off all the cobwebs we scrub floors, paint and polish everything in anticipation for our first guests.  Even the dung beetles give us a hand by rolling all the poop out of way - everyone pitches in and camp is a buzzing hive of activity.  

Safari vehicles are serviced, sometimes we even have to replace and engine.... boats are painted and the dock is carried carefully into the water.  The Selous is beautiful and green after the rains, rivers and dams are full and the animals are fat and health

We look forward to meeting you all - Karibu Siwandu!
