The album works perfectly, thanks for persevering . I am amazed that you were able to name all the orphans, well done. I just take lots of photos and then think afterwards that I should have named them. Maalim is just too cute. I especially liked all the street views, something which is often missed when we race from one park to another. It gives a good feel for a country.

Looking forward to your next planning thread!

Thanks for the trip report and the pictures I loved your "road to" pictures. I'll be on some of the same roads three weeks from now.

Wow! What a nice way to begin my morning--seeing your photos! Really enjoyed and appreciated the effort that went into the project. Linn and her Temba applied make-up was too much!! Thanks for the memories--I recognized several landmarks along your "roads" And, you really knew how to take advantage of some great lighting particularly in the drive into the N. Crater. Looking foward to hearing/seeing more of Dot, Linn, Biddy,... Dick

"I hope I never see another damn photo again!!!!!"
Also chuckling at "Here comes Michelle again." I think she'd chuckle too.

Re the photos: You had some playful lions in Samburu and rhinos galore in Nakuru. I believe that is a Martial Eagle on the ground. What a great shot. Beautiful crater scenery. How lucky to be treated like a termite mound by the cheetahs. I'll have to read about that and your stay at DeWildt.

Thanks guys for your kind words, makes it worth while.
It's also a great way to relive the trip.
One thing that we've bought as a result of this trip is a Kookaburra Portable Toilet http://www.discountcamping.com.au/in...pageid=showers.
I remember reading the "Toilet' thread a couple of years ago, it had me in hysterics, but I think the above is the solution.
Lynn, thanks for the name of the Eagle, I dont have a book to reference that against.
Siro12, as bumpy as the roads were, it was worth doing at least once, I look forward to reading your report.
Dick, your my hero!!!!!!

How can anyone help themselves from not clicking on a link for a Kookaburra Toilet. I still have to read the rest of the report but I got sidetracked by the Kookaburra Toilet.

MyDogKyle, we had your room at the Mara Serena, we were wondering about the MDK carved into the bench.
And thanks for $50 you left under the bed for us!

Ha ha!

If Lin and Biddy loved the starting block toilets, I'm sure they'll be very happy with the Kookaburra Toilet.

Crowned cranes doing their courtship dance is a lovely and lucky sight in the crater.

An audience with Dame Daphne is more good luck!

The naked or not man doing a show upstairs at the Stanley Serena is intriguing, but not intruiging enough to stay there and lose precious sleep.

"Couldn't smell you were home," is one of the lamest and at the same time one of the most innovative excuses I've heard.

You are most welcome for any assistance I may have provided during your 3 year planning process. I think you went at the right time of year based on everything you saw and the fact that Crater Sopa had so few people.

Thanks for the info on the travel health aids and for sharing a wonderful and humorous report. I hope you can post 50 more for each of your upcoming Sheldrick visits.
