Day 2. Dar to Selous Game reserves
After breakfast, collect packed lunches and continue to Selous Game Reserve. Afternoon game drive in the Reserve. Dinner and overnight at Rufiji River Camp or similar.

By air, the Northern Selous is defined by the Rufii River. A mile wide in places, its courses are deeply carved in the soft sandy soil and visible for miles as you approach by light aircraft. Any tracks here are beaten not by the small number of visitors that come to stay, but by the feet of generations of hippos and elephant whose influence has shaped the landscape, at least as much as the river.

And the scenery changes quickly, in a matter of a few miles miombo woodland - home to hartebeest, zebra and herds of buffalo - gives way to wide grassy valleys, strangely reminiscent of English park land; thick stands of doum palms reveal glittering lakes burgeoning with life of all kinds.

And sand rivers, literally rivers of dry sand bleached white and littered with the sculptural forms of dead leadwood trees, are one of the most alluring aspects of this area. They are also a magnet to game, drawn to the fresh water that flows beneath the surface. This area is home to all the major mammal species - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and even the very illusive black rhino.

" Dear Hidden Valley team I have just returned from a 7 day Lemosho trek with Happygod and his team. I would like to extend my warm wishes to the team. I thought they did an absolutely amazing job. They said that they had worked together as a team and it really shined through. They were professional, courteous, friendly, efficient. Happy was brilliant, constantly calculating, observing, watching us on what we ate, our behavior, our likes and dislikes. The small things like getting us to camp at a reasonable hour, away from the crowds, tending to my blistered feet, The singing of happy birthday, etc etc the compliments really are endless. I recognize that it is a huge responsibility taking tourists up the mountain. I could not have asked for a better experience. They were genuinely excited and happy when we summited. Truly memorable, thanks Happy and the team. Loved every minute of it. "

- Best wishes, Alex
