I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up that I was not happy”. Ernest Hemmingway.

 

Firstly a merry Christmas to all and all the best for the New Year, especially if you are planning an African adventure. We are especially thinking of our family and friends, who although on the same continent, seem oh so far away. Rest assured that we are not suffering here in the wilds of Africa! In fact we are continuing to have an experience of a lifetime.

“Everything in Africa bites, but the safari bug is worst of all.”

 

There was a very nice flow to this part of the trip and it can just as easily be done in the reverse direction. Nairobi to Amboseli is a half day only, but a world apart. Amboseli to Tsavo West the same and so also to Tsavo East and then to the coast north of Mombasa. One can also avoid much of the truck-loaded Nairobi to Mombasa road.
