We have intentionally planned a lot of time in the Mara in the hopes of viewing a river crossing and allowed some time to sit by the river and see the activity of the migration.

Working with: Amahoro Tours for Rwanda. Anne has been great through the entire process. This trip was originally supposed to happen last year, but had to be postponed. Anne was gracious and we picked right back up where we left off when I emailed to resume the process for this year.

Africa Serendipity for Kenya. Sandi always provides fantastic service. Can't say enough.

Now to review notes from last time and start the packing/shopping list.
