A Safari with Patty and Mark, Ithumba the highlight

Jump to last reply

We arrived home last night and I'm still have the "awe" of africa with me. Just wanted to write a quick post about our 2 weeks in Kenya with Patty and Mark (they will not be back to Monday and I'm going to leave most of the trip reporting to Patty, since she is the expert). I will probably post my pictures, but I'm sure our photos will be very similar.

Like others have reported Kenya is very very dry right now and rain is really needed. We did have a little rain one evening when we stayed at Sandai, but in the morning you could barely tell it had rained at all, the ground still was so dry. The animals are really concentrated near the watering holes and 2 of the camps we stayed in were on water and had lots of animals near and in camp. At Galdessa in Tsavo east we had to be escorted through camp as the elephants were every where. I thought we were going to have one big bull in the dining room with us, but he knew his way around camp and once you got used to them walking along the camp paths it was quite the sight.

I cannot say enough about ithumba, it was an amazing experience. And everyone survived my meals. The camp has 2 on staff and they do a lot as far as setting the tables and all the clean up.

All in all it was a great trip, I'm still a little jet lagged, but did want to get something posted.
