A Selous Sundowner

Sunset in Tanzania is a big deal.

Tanzanians traditionally gather at sunset to toast the sun for the day.

Each evening Eenok, Sam and I would stop our jeep out in the savannah, pop up a picnic table, throw a small table cloth over and dive into the cooler for a cold beer. This was our Selous sundowner.

With the animals around us, the sun setting and the heat of the day wearing off we'd say cheers to the sun for a brilliant day!
Dust on our faces and smiles all round, the sigh of hippos, the buffalos grazing nearby and the lions snoozing under a tree round the corner, we'd sit back, sip our drinks and tuck into nibbles cooked up by the camp.

Good night Amara, mia amora
