My Dear Martha, Don't be tense all the time because it makes you disobey the cardinal rule of Fodors politeness "unless you have something nice to say, better not say it". Learn from others in this thread such as Lynda and Comfy. Hausfrau didn't have to post but she did. Applaud her for her time investment.

Hausfrau, thanks so much for writing this report and including your beautiful pictures. I really enjoyed it. I'm sure you know that despite the odd negative post, most of us here really appreciate the time and effort you took to share your experience with us. Thank you!

Last post on the thread. I did not mean to be too negative but the fact is I was irked along the way by some of the posts including those on UK that sounded I am oh so cool and need- attention and then the last day just did my head in! Contrast with Lynda's that are full of mature discussions. But whatever! No more posts here.

Comfy, MyDogKyle, toffeecrisp: thank you!

martha, did I wrong you in another life? As you seem to be new to this forum, I will forgive you jumping to conclusions about my personality. I apologize if my treatment of this sensitive subject has somehow insulted you. I did my best over the course of our trip to come to terms with the fact that I was a rich tourist traveling in a Third World country. I tried to make my report balanced but kept it light-hearted, as this is a travel forum, not a political discussion. Everyone makes their own choices in life; half of our safari group chose not to visit the slum, but I didn't jump down their throats about it.

Hausfrau, Iím trying to catch up with trip reports before becoming too busy and Iíve just finished reading yours. Thanks for sharing your professional quality writing and photography, and most of all, thanks for your photo of topis making more topis. Could there be a more laudable pursuit?

hausfrau, I too forgot to read your last day. What a nice description. Nyamera, Linda and Comfy are correct. This is the best trip report on a safari.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! We are now just 29 days, 20 hours, 40 minutes and 25 seconds from our flight to Nairobi for the Stanley Wing Safari. Having read every bit of your report, I just CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED! Jessica, a wonderful blog, and I hope I can have HALF the experience you did!

Nyamera, thanks - you are absolutely right about the topis! ;-)

julianewman, you are too kind!

Joe, I am pleased that I was able to get you hyped up for Africa (just as Lynda's report did for me last year!). You are going to have an INCREDIBLE time! If you happen to have Tonnie and/or Renny as your guides or Rodgers as your driver (in Tanzania), please say hi to them for me.
