Trip Report Ash Clouds and Airline strikes be darn, we are going on safari!

We just arrived home after six flights from the Serengeti to StL! I am a little loopier (thats a word, I think) than usual, but safe.
Just thought I would post to say that this was the MOST fantastic travel experience we have ever had. The combination of Daniel at DKGrand and Clamian at Warrior trails was fantastic and very complimentary in skill and ability to lead a trip. We were "blown away" by how smooth everything went.
The list of animals we sotted and photographed is endless and I will add to this report later, however we did see the "big five" plus a six -seven foot spitting cobra and a puff adder (wait to you see the pictures) . The Mara was green and the grasses tall. The migration was about 10K north of the Serengeti Serena and the herds were somewhat scattered.
I have about 2k images to edit and 10 hours of video clips to sort through before I add to my report.
My head is spinning, I have to get some sleep, but again, thanks for all of the advice from those on this board.
Ron
