Kenya and Tanzania Backwards Trip Report

Jump to last reply

Apologies in advance if this is a bad idea. It will all work out all right in the end.

The title doesn't mean we traveled sitting the wrong way on an ass or anything interesting like that, I'm afraid. Just that I'm effectively going to start at the end of my trip, work back and then start and the beginning and go to the end again. Confused? DO NOT PANIC, it's all by park anyway so it's really not as bad as it sounds.

Itinerary was
4 nights Tsavo East]
3 nights Tsavo West
3 nights Tarangire
5 nights Ruaha
1 night Nairobi
6 nights Mara

I would explain further, but it would probably just be more confusing. Here are my photos and a partial trip report for the Mara

and for Ruaha

These "reports" are not intended specifically for Fodor's, so you may find the pace a little slow.... but if I wait until I finish everything for here... well, that might be a long time away. I'm thinking once I get started it'll all come together quickly...

My Fodor's trip report will hopefully start later this week with Tsavo East and Tsavo West ... IF I get the uploaded photos for those parks organised AND manage to check some names and spellings....

Anyway, basically you're welcome to look and read, but if you really prefer to do reading without looking (bandwidth, hate my photos, seen it all before ... whatever) wait a few days and you can start doing that - and beginning from the beginning too!

At least I got something up before Sandi... ;-)

Oh... and I'm Paul. I live in Thailand and have done so for eons, but I am not Thai. I travel with my wife who is Thai but spends a lot of her time outside Thailand. My wife gave up designer handbags to ensure we could travel to Africa every year. She has already forced me (practically at gunpoint) to book another trip for December 2009, which is the earliest I can think of affording it in terms of either money or time.
