Trip Report: Rwanda,Uganda,Kenya,Tanzania,Dec 05-Mar 06

Jump to last reply

Well i better get started if i ever want to finish this.It was a long trip and the report might take just as long so those who are interested please be patient.I am also far from a talented writer unlike some of the reports i have read but i will do my best.If anyone has any questions about anything please ask if i skimp on the details.

We will get our pictures back today so i will post some on Imagestation.They also have video on that site so i might put some of that up as well.

To summarize my locations were as follows

Uganda-Rwanda Dec 07-25.Great Lakes Safaris.
Kenya Dec 26-Jan 01. Samburu Trails.
Kenya Jan 01-Jan 18. Kenya Wildlife Trails.
Tanzania Jan 19-Feb 09. Tropical Trails
Zanzibar Feb 10-Feb 20.
Tanzania Feb 20-Feb 27. Foxes Safaris
London and then home on March 01.

I started planning this trip almost as soon as i got home from Africa in 2002.We were supposed to go in 2004 but real life got in the way and we had to wait another year.Having just got home i can safely say that my next trip will be to Namibia and not South America as planned.Our trip was spectacular and surpassed all my expectations.I can honestly say there were only about 5 or 6 days that i did not totally enjoy.

I also learned a tremendous amount on this trip and will be able to plan the next one even better.

If i had to list my favorite moments i would start with Gorilla Tracking,Summiting Kilimanjaro,witnessing a wildebeest give birth,seeing chimps,and all of my firsts including Cheetahs (12),Leopards,Serval,Giant Forest Hog,and about 20 birds.Oh yeah and getting married (sorry honey).Also all the cultural moments were amazing as well and the genocide memorial and orphanage were heartbreaking moments but must do's.I know i'm forgetting a bunch of things but i'll remember as i write.

I will start the report on my next message.
