As camp managers we sometimes receive strange requests from guests. From wake-up calls at 3:00 in the morning to only being served apples that died of natural causes, it’s all in a day’s work for camp staff.

When guests in Siwandu recently asked to make music in the restaurant we were hesitant to say yes… sure, our tone-death hyenas don’t always sing the prettiest of songs but bush-noises are an integral part of being in the Selous. But before we could say “No sirs, please put away your instruments” they were set-up and started playing. Soon we realized these guys were not just any musicians – it was Quito Rymer and his good friend Michael Blaize, professional reggae musicians, and that night they taught the hyenas and the bush-babies a musical lesson or two. Here they performing they’re song “Africa” live and unplugged in Siwandu (and yes, that is our chef Mau dancing in the background.)
