Jambo Kiki,
Habari yako?? (how are you?)

It's been a long time since we last had the Selous Gudies on line and it's great to see you're back.

Good to hear that the guides are training and hope all goes well.

Let us know how the Selous bush is at the moment and also about the wildlife you can see at the moment.

hi all there, how are you? Thank you very much for your replying, thanks Elzet, Saraf & all members of forums,. Selous is ok but it is dry season now,,,. The number and availability of wildogs is very low, we haven't seen more than one group of wild dogs '4dogs' only.. Also hard to find elephants but easy for the lions. The rain wasn't too much this year but the water level in theriver rised and fall quick. Bigger part of the river is sandy but still passable for the boat safari,, Am talking about rufiji river in selous game reserve. also sory for the previous post I sent in wrong topic, please help me to close the new one I named ''Hi all formites'' thanks a lot formites,, thanks for your good cooperation,.
Its Furahini Nnko / Kiki, guides of selous.

Shame about not seeing much wild dog, but great that the lions are doing well. Have the elephants migrated or do you have a bad poaching problem?

The other topic has gone but it was no problem, the mods can merge topics together quite easily if you do start another one.

hi Saraf,, &members of forums
Not real migrated but it is hard to see them due to the lack of water, in rain season there are a lot of water holes ''swamps'' that makes the elephants to appear every where.

Thanks for a new topic.
Kiki, Furahini.

Good afternoon Guides of Selous. Trust you are well in this gorgeous continent of ours! :D

I haven't (yet) been able to find out how long the baby giraffe has its umbilical cord. However, the cord snaps on birth of the baby, as it falls about 1.5 to 2m to the ground.

After that, the umbilical cord will dry out and fall off. In humans, this takes about 1-3 weeks, depending on conditions. A baby giraffe is out in the fresh air, whereas a human baby seldom is - so I suspect that the giraffe's umbilical cord will therefore dry out, and fall off, quicker than a human's; perhaps within a week.

If anyone knows the figures, please correct me if I'm incorrect.
