Hunting the Selous - Best Months
Does anyone have a view, hopefully based on recent experience, as to which is the "best" month for hunting in the Selous? I haven't been there before. I am trying to decide between July and September.
I went very early in the season to Zimbabwe this year and found the grass so high and thick that we just couldn't see the game effectively. We could only just see the heads of larger animals.
The hunting season is later in Tanzania, staring in July ,and I want to understand just how dense the cover is at that time of year.
I believe the advantage of going early is that the game is calmer and not spooked by months of hunting pressure, whereas going later means that you have a better chance to see what you are going after.
