Den's 2006 Trip Report

Jump to last reply

Patty, Leely, Nyamera & Wayne has it been a week already since I said I would post my report? Golly time flies!

Den’s 2006 Trip Report (well, some of it)!

1) Thank You Foderites!

2) June 8- 20: Report Not Complete…TO COME!

Kilimanjaro & Karatu Region: Wow, 5 Stars in bringing to life the reality of the way of life for folks in Tanzanian no matter how much I read and prepared for what I experienced!

Getting together with and old friend and her local friends:

Many visitions up close and personal in local places and homes. We also ventured to Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, & Gibbs Farm…

3) June 21-27: REPORT SUMMARY COMPLETE!

Mobile-Fly Camping Safari in the Serengeti!
Outfitter: KiliWarrior Expeditions! 5 Lion Paws!

4) June 28-July 2: Report Not Complete…
Outfitter: Great Lakes Safari via KiliWarrior Expeditions! 5 Mountain Gorilla Nose Prints!

5) Why has it taken me so long to report? The Intimated, The Sad, The Good & The Fun News!


1) THANK YOU FODERITES!

My trip was actually planned before I discovered the Fordors website but with all the experience and expertise from the travelers my trip was enhanced threefold! Also, after awhile I figured out that one of the owners of the Outfitter I chose (KiliWarrior Expeditions, Climbhighsleeplow) was a poster and unbeknownst to me I had been enjoying some of his posts! What a riot! The world really is small!

I wish to thank; MartyNC, Sandi, Patty, Leely, Nyamera, Wayne…IMPOSSIBLE to name all the Forderites I wish to thank whom I appreciated their contributions to my trip as I have gleaned much from everyone!

CAMERA HELP (WHAT WOULD YOUR “SAFARI CAMERA KIT” LOOK LIKE?): Thanks ever so much to Jasher who really got the ball rolling in a format that was possible for me to negotiate a plan of attack in purchasing a camera!

Also thanks for their camera input to: Kavey, Mediatorr, cary999, lovetodiscover. 99mkw & Andy Biggs indirectly via his website!

3) June 21-27: Report Summary Complete!
Mobile-Fly Camping Safari in the Serengeti!
Outfitter: KiliWarrior Expeditions! 5 Lion Paws!

These websites are all connected but to make it easy to negotiate I have listed them separately:

KiliWarrior safari testimonial page - Den’s visual and written testimonial:
http://www.kiliwarriors.com/safari_testimonials.htm
(This represents only one week of my time in Africa-but a great one!)

The Home Page for KiliWarrior Safari’s:
http://www.kiliwarriors.com/

This Home Page for KiliWarrior Climbing and best to get to know them from:
http://www.go-kili.com/

The Home Page for one of their Charities:
http://www.kiliwarriors.com/safari_charity.htm

This website is valuable RESOURCE for anyone planning a trip to Africa:

5) WHY HAS IT TAKEN ME SO LONG TO REPORT?

The Intimated:

I have to admit I was inspired recently by folks mentioning “summaries are AOK”!

The Sad:

Post Africa Depression & the finality that a report represents! Oh yea, and those real life duties!

The Good:

I am going to be returning to live for a time as I am in the development stage of forming an out of school Youth Program (OOSY) in collaboration with folks there! More on this late…

I have also committed to block out some time for Ernest, from the KiliWarriors, who has formed The Maasai Joy Children’s Center organization along with some other projects in the Moshi & Karatu areas I am involved in.

The Fun:

I have been in constant contact working on different matters with my friends from Tanzania and Rwanda since I have been home! Very nourishing since I had a bad case of post Africa withdrawal!

I have been touring my KiliWarrior Guide all around my region in the form of a prop! So funny, I will eventually post pictures!

The End:

I really will follow up on the missing reports but I did want to let all you know how much you really do help folks and your help in turn makes it possible for us to not only enjoy our “safari’s” but inspires us to contribute what we can and have the opportunity to be “student ambassadors” for the many needs in Africa!


Ahsante sana!

Den
